Dellavedova acknowledged the Cavs would become a major NBA drawcard with season tickets selling out within minutes of James' announcement. "Our media guy said it will be kind of crazy – I'm sure we will just focus on the summer league and what we need to do," Dellavedova said. "I think it's exciting but we all have to improve as well. "We can't let him take the ball and hope for the best, our whole team has to make sure we pull our weight as well. "I'm just excited to have a chance to get amongst it and win some games." The Age

Saint Mary's retired the No. 4 jersey worn by all-time leading scorer Matthew Dellavedova on Saturday night. Dellavedova became the second men's player at Saint Mary's to have his number retired, joining Tom Meschery's number 31, before the Gaels hosted BYU. "I'm very humbled and privileged to have this happen because there have been a lot of great players who played here and I had the opportunity to play with a lot of great players in my four years here," he said.

Point guard Matthew Dellavedova has faced the same minutes crunch that Bennett has lately, as the rookie has registered a DNP-CD in two of three games before Friday. The hard-working first-year player didn't do anything wrong, Brown stressed. "Nothing happened to Delly," Brown said. "I'm trying to give guys on the floor a little bit more consistent minutes. Delly has always been kind of the odd man or the sixth guy when everybody is healthy." Cleveland Plain Dealer

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. “If I were to bet, I’d bet half my salary that I’d get a dunk before he does, and I’m not even playing anymore,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “He’s a non-athlete, but he gets everything out of his body you could hope or ask for. That’s all you want.” News-Herald
