Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) – The Detroit Pistons have signed 2003 first
round pick Carlos Delfino to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of
the contract were not disclosed.

“We are pleased that Carlos is signed and ready to begin his NBA career,” said
Joe Dumars, President of Basketball Operations. “Carlos had a good season in
Europe last year, leading Skipper Bologna to the Euroleague Final Four, and we
are excited that he will be on our roster next season.”

Delfino, the No. 25 selection in the 2003 NBA Draft, remained overseas last
season. In 13 regular-season games for Skipper Bolgna, he averaged 12.8
points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.6 assists.
