In what has been a long time coming in NBA free agency news, the Milwaukee Bucks have finally signed free agent Carlos Delfino to a two-year deal according to various reports.
In NBA news that should not shock you, Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski was the first with the news via Twitter:
Bucks agree on a two-year, $6.5M deal with Carlos Delfino, w/ team option for 3rd that could pay him nearly $10M, league sources tell Y!

Delfino has a great chance to cash in on that third year of the deal if the team chooses to bring him back. A cool $10 million is not anything to sniff at.
Rotoworld went on to elaborate on how well Delfino played during his last stint with the Bucks:
He spent two years with the Bucks and scored a career-high 11.5 points per game in 2010-11. The Bucks have a noticeable hole at small forward and this would be a great landing spot for Delfino’s fantasy value. If you’re looking for some late 3-pointers in your draft, he’s shaping up to be a nice value pick.
The Bucks just got a bit deep as the team continues to try and find ways to improve. Delfino is a nice step in the right direction when it comes to offense.
