Raptors Extend Qualifying Offer To Delfino


June 16, 2009

The Toronto Raptors announced Tuesday they have extended a qualifying offer to restricted free agent guard-forward Carlos Delfino. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.

In accordance with the league’s collective bargaining agreement, in order for a team to retain its rights of first refusal with respect to a restricted free agent it must tender the player a qualifying offer prior to June 30. A restricted free agent may sign an offer sheet with any team, but is subject to a right of first refusal in favour of the NBA team for which the player last played.

Delfino played last season in Russia with BC Khimky Moscow in the Russia-A Superleague. He averaged 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 23.2 minutes in 26 games. He had a season-high 25 points against Krasnoyarsk. He also appeared in 10 Eurocup outings, averaging 13.0 points and 3.6 rebounds in 27 minutes. He scored in double figures in eight games with a high of 19 points against Benetton.

The Raptors acquired Delfino from the Detroit Pistons on June 15, 2007 in exchange for a second-round pick in 2009 and 2010. He appeared in all 82 games in his lone season with the Raptors (2007-08), averaging 9.0 points and 4.4 rebounds. He set career highs in points (738), rebounds (359), three-point field goals made (40) and attempted (123), free throws made (116) and attempted (156) and minutes (1928). He paced the reserves in scoring a team-best 31 times and scored in double figures a career-high 32 times, with five games of 20 or more points.

A first-round pick by Detroit (25th overall) in 2003, Delfino has averaged 5.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in 282 regular season NBA games. He also played four seasons in Italy, two with Reggio Calabria (2000-02) and two with Skipper Bologna (2002-04). He has won an Olympic gold medal (2004) and a bronze medal (2008) as a member of the Argentina National Team.

i dont get how an nba player goes to euro and only averages 10 points per game thats like what he averaged in nba

honestly ive felt hestant at the thought of resigning delfino cuz he wouldnt have gotten any better in euro just worse, and he was already incositant enough as is and he isnt even doing good in euro

LBF 06-16-2009 09:00 PM

you know what blaze whuteva just whuteva they did it there's nothing you can do about it cause we all know you cant change the past

Gurk 06-16-2009 09:06 PM

Blaze, i know what you mean. I woulda thought the same thing. I heard he was like the highest payed person there too and all he could get was 10 ppg. Maybe because the rules were very different. I actually expected him to get like 20 ppg

LBF 06-16-2009 09:14 PM

ok, gurk he did crap in europe, europe is europe but, he seemed to do well with the raps so, ya.

jeffb 06-16-2009 09:18 PM

Alot of bullshit went down while he was there, with Paychecks not being honoured and all. I read several times that he was unhappy and wasn't motivated to excel because of the situation. He'll be fine here, i just don't want him to start. He's a 20-23MPG guy off the bench imo.

LBF 06-16-2009 09:24 PM

hey does chuck stilll have that salami & cheese restaurant in t-dot

Belsius 06-16-2009 09:28 PM

Its EuroPE.

LX 06-16-2009 09:36 PM

So this means that he'd be a restricted free agent if he looks elsewhere in the NBA - right?

No way he's starting.
He'd be a solid defender off the bench. He also has great handling for a 2-3 guy. There was a time when he played PG in Europe I believe.

hello, my name is dr. greenthumb

Yea. So that means Atlanta has to do the same with Childress I guess

That would be fine by me, for the right deal. I just really think that it'll be left until next summer and either we'll re-sign him or do a S&T.
