Matthew Dellavedova Earning Role With Cavs
For those who marvel at athletically gifted players, look elsewhere. The Cavaliers are enamored with Australian Matthew Dellavedova, who is competing for the third point guard spot behind Kyrie Irving and Jarrett Jack.
The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Dellavedova signed a partially guaranteed, two-year, $1.3 million contract. He’ll likely make the final roster.
“I’m expecting to try to make the team,” he said. “That’s what I’m here to do.”
Despite being at a disadvantage athletically, Dellavedova’s intangibles are what separate him from some of the free-agent invitees.
