He's not really starter material but he SHOULD be ahead of Joey Graham on the depth chart.

Solid addition to the bench.

Very nice pickup for the Raptors. With only one year left on Delfino's contract (and a soon to be RFA), this could be the year that he can show what he can do.

Colangelo does it again with these kinds of pick-ups. And for only 2009 and 2011 2nd round picks? Good job I'd say.

Yeah.. no Starter material.. but won't mind having him amongst the backups.

but don't look at the numbers. the guy's better than what the stats show.

Pistons are probably looking to save any money they can to avoid luxury tax issues once they re-sign Chauncey (and maybe McDyess?).

This move saves them almost $2mil for next year.

Its official Detroit is entering the rebuilding phase
:)

Is Dumars stupid? This was a horrible trade for Detroit. From what I've seen of Delfino, he seems like a young guy that could become a solid player if given some time. Now with Pistons early exit and Billups's pending Free agency wouldn't having a younger guard on your roster be a good asset?

And everyone knows the Toronto's picks are going to be next to worthless. By 2009, Bosh and Ford will be entering his prime, Bargs will be good, and the rest of the young guys will help Toronto to a top 5 team. High record = ****ty picks.

What is Detroit thinking?

Delfino has done NOTHING in Detroit. A bunch of small hype about what kind of player he could be...and guess what? He didnt pan out. Why does Dumars get roasted fo trading a bench player that a couple fans thought was something special. You thought Darko was special...well now look at him.

Pistons trade Delfino to Toronto
Detroit gets two future second round picks in exchange
June 15, 2007

FREE PRESS STAFF REPORTS


The Detroit Pistons traded reserve guard Carlos Delfino to the Toronto Raptors for two future second round picks today.

Delfino was Detroit's first round draft pick (25th overall) in the 2003 NBA Draft. The other first round draft pick for Detroit that year, Darko Milicic, was traded in 2006 to Orlando.
