Joffrey Lauvergne: Glad to be a new part of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Can’t wait to start this new challenge.
Dellavedova told the crowd at Fed Square that playing under legendary point guard Jason Kidd was a key in signing with the Bucks. “To be able to play for a coach who is one of the best point guards of all time, I’m going to be able to learn a lot off him and try to really expand my game and be in more of a leadership role than I was in Cleveland,” he said.
“My agent was talking to a fair few teams, the Bucks were interested, Sacramento, the Cavs, but Milwaukee just seemed like a really good fit for me (as a) young up and coming team that’s got a lot of potential.”
