HoopsHype Matthew Dellavedova rumors

January 24, 2014 Updates

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

The third point guard role with the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers essentially is Matthew Dellavedova's to lose, the Aussie Olympian signing a two-year, $1.3 million non/partially-guaranteed minimum contract. Dellavedova, who turned 23 on Sunday, impressed the Cavs during his Summer League games for Cleveland in Las Vegas where he was likened to NBA stars suchn as Steve Nash and Mark Price. A roster spot is there for the taking behind burgeoning Melbourne-born star Kyrie Irving and recently acquired Jarrett Jack. Australia's starting point guard at the London Olympics yesterday tweeted: "Thanks everyone for the support (and birthday wishes) - have a partial guarantee which means I still have to make the team at training camp."
