New additions to Rockets and Bulls

Since we’re still in the off season, teams are scrambling to produce the best lineup possible for the upcoming season. To this extent, the Houston Rockets and the Chicago Bulls have announced their newest additions to the team.

First, sources inside the Houston Rockets announced that they sealed the deal with Carlos Delfino from Argentina, a 29 year old 6 ft 6 in player that started his career in 1998 in Argentina. He first played in the NBA in the 2004-2005 season, when he signed with the Detroit Pistons, where he stayed on for two more seasons. In the 2007-2008 season he was traded to the Toronto Raptors, then he spent a season in Russia, playing for the Khimki Moscow Region. From 2009 to this year he played for the Milwaukee Bucks, where he increased his career statistics. Even though the deal was not yet made official, sources say that his transfer is a sure thing.

Delfino also helped Argentina’s national team reach 4th place in the London Olympics.

The Chicago Bulls also made a new acquisition, with Brian Hagen being signed on as assistant general manager. Gar Forman, the General Manager for the Bulls, stated that Hagen is one of the best young scouts in the league today, and they are extremely pleased to have him on board.

Hagen spent the last nine seasons in New Orleans with the Hornets, and his last position with them was that of Director of Player Personnel.

And the last news comes from the Houston Rockets again, where Jeremy Lin was introduced to the team on the Rockets’ practice court. A lot of media attention was drawn by this event, and the Rockets seemed excited to have him on board. After all, they can use all the help they could get, after being on a losing streak for three consecutive seasons in which they failed to qualify for the playoffs. After failing to get Jeremy Lin back in December, the team finally introduced Lin just yesterday and they’re extremely optimistic about the whole thing.

All in all, a lot of troop movements in the NBA these past few days. With the Olympics gone, people are looking forward to see some action from the world’s leading basketball league.
