Via @brewhoop, Carlos Delfino is reported to not be interested in returning to the Milwaukee Bucks where he has played the past 3 seasons (since 2009). The article, in Spanish, is from Argentine newspaper "Ole". The quote in question,

Olé averiguó que una de las franquicias es Phoenix. ¿Las otras? "Los Suns sí, pero el resto preferimos mantenerlo en reserva porque se está en plena negociación. Hablamos de dos o tres años de contrato. Eso sí, podemos decir que Milwaukee no está en esa lista", contó Angel Cerisola, agente del santafesino en la Argentina, descartando por ahora la continuidad en los Bucks (jugó allí en las últimas tres temporadas).

English:

Olé found that a franchise is Phoenix. The others? "The Suns do, but the rest prefer to set it aside because it is being negotiated. We talked about two or three year contract. But we can say that Milwaukee is not on that list, "Angel told Cerisola, agent of Santa Fe in Argentina, rejecting for now the continuity of the Bucks (he played there in the past three seasons).

Delfino would be a great fit for the Spurs, especially knowing they were again rumored to be interested in Josh Howard (thanks, but no thanks). Delfino would likely gel with the current squad better, especially knowing he'd be playing with fellow countryman Manu Ginobili.

Delfino averaged 9 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists in 28 minutes last season with the Bucks.
