Carlos Delfino had a nice playoff run. Dunking over Kevin Durant all while averaging nine points a game, it’s fair to say he didn’t want it to end. However after fracturing his foot back in May, Carlos Delfino’s playoff run was unfortunately cut early as he needed to undergo surgery.


Delfino could be back by the beginning of training camp or he could miss some, depending on how he’s feeling and how everything heals.

Delfino defiantly brings value off the bench. With the Rockets style of play he’s able to space the floor with his remarkable three-point shooting (he shot 35.5 percent during the playoffs) while enables both James Harden and Jeremy Lin to attack the rim.
