Milwaukee Bucks Rumors
Cleveland Coffee Company owner Brendan Walton found out that his company’s popular coffee line endorsed by Matthew Dellavedova was coming to an end when he saw a tweet from LeBron James. Dellavedova, according to James, had a agreed to an offer sheet with Milwaukee. Which meant that selling “G’day Mate” again next season probably wasn’t happening. “I said ‘oh no that’s not a good sign,” Walton said. “LeBron has more of a fast track to [the Cavaliers front office] than I do.”
Their contract was set to end regardless of Dellavedova’s status with the Cavaliers, but with the close relationship the NBA player had formed with the company, it seemed likely he would have re-upped it. “We were keeping the faith in the relationship we developed,” Walton said. “… It was neat because [48 hours after winning the title] he brought his family to the warehouse, his parents, sister and friends. That was really neat.” The company even shipped some coffee to his parents’ home in Australia.
The 19-year-old was cleared of any serious injury to his right arm, suffered during a scrimmage in Madison, Wisconsin. He was sent back to team headquarters in Milwaukee for tests, but returned to the training camp on Friday (AEST) wearing a wrist brace. “I’ll be back in a few days,” said Maker. “(I’m) just staying in it here on the sideline here with the guys. “I think it happened for a reason, just so I can get better with my left hand!”
