Hidden in the Racine Journal' first report on Caron Butler being traded to the Suns which was finalized Wednesday night was this news about Carlos Delfino. The Bucks meanwhile are committed to trying to make the playoffs for the second straight season. After a flurry of offseason trades and free-agent signings they appear set at every position except small forward which is where Butler plays. Carlos Delfino whom the Bucks signed as a free-agent in July had been the projected starting small forward. But Delfino is still recovering from surgery for a fractured bone in his right foot. There are whispers that Delfino will miss the entire preseason and even a portion of the regular season. Delfino signed for three years at just under $10 million with just the first two years guaranteed but now they're kind of overstocked with rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo Butler Delfino when he returns and Kris Middleton acquired in the Brandon Jennings trade who is better than advertised.
