Matthew Dellavedova was torched during Australia's blowout loss to Serbia on Friday.
Dellavedova tallied just three points and three assists while getting badly outplayed by Serbia's Milos Teodosic, who finished with a game-high 22 points and five assists. Delly shot just 1-of-6 from the floor and committed three turnovers. The poor performance was particularly disappointing because Dellavedova dished out 13 assists in Australia’s first game vs. Serbia, a game which the Boomers won by 15. Australia will look to bounce back in the bronze medal game against Spain on Sunday. Aug 19 - 8:07 PM

Matthew Dellavedova believes he will fit right in with the Bucks.

"I’ll fit in wherever coach [Jason] Kidd and the team needs me," Delly said. "I’m looking forward to playing with those guys, competing with them and growing with them, as well. I think I’ve got a lot of growth left. I’m young still, and so are those guys." Delly has played well in Rio with averages of 11.0 points, 10.5 assists and 1.2 steals, and he has a real shot at challenging Michael Carter-Williams for the starting role at PG.

Matthew Dellavedova scored six points during a 93-68 win over China on Friday, adding one rebound, eight assists and no turnovers in 20 minutes.

This game was somewhat close early, but the Aussies took over in the second half. They may have needed an adjustment period with Andrew Bogut resting -- he had a minor knee issue on Wednesday. Australia looks like a lock to finish second in their group, which could potentially set up a gold medal game against the USA.
Aug 12 - 3:12 PM

Matthew Dellavedova was terrific on Wednesday, contributing 11 points, 11 assists and six rebounds during a 98-88 loss to Team USA.

Australia is now 2-1 in the preliminary round, and tonight's near-miss vs. the U.S. cements them as one of the most formidable teams in the Olympics. Dellavedova had nine assists in the first half alone, while playing his usual brand of physical defense, and he'll be tough matchup for China on Friday.
Aug 10 - 8:12 PM

Matthew Dellavedova was terrific during a 95-80 win over Serbia on Monday, scoring 23 points with 13 assists, two steals, no turnovers and three 3-pointers.

He was 7-of-8 from the field to give him a magnificent 106.3 effective field goal percentage to go with that awesome assist:turnover ratio. The Bucks are likely going to start Dellavedova and his role should grow with his new team. Still, it's going to be Giannis Antetokounmpo running the show, so there just won't be much opportunity for Delly as a fantasy option.
Aug 8 - 3:26 PM

Matthew Dellavedova was dropping dimes in Australia's 87-66 victory over France on Saturday, finishing with four points, 10 assists and three steals in 26.5 minutes of action.

It's still mind-blowing that Milwaukee gave Delly almost $40M this offseason, but apparently "grit" isn't only valued in Memphis. Even if Jason Kidd somehow figures out a way to justify starting Dellavedova at point guard to begin the season, he's not a recommended fantasy target in standard formats.
Aug 6 - 3:12 PM

Bucks coach Jason Kidd said that Matthew Dellavedova could start at point guard.

"It's only July," Kidd said. "As coaches we'll start looking at different things. [Dellavedova] could start with Khris [Middleton] and Jabari [Parker] and Giannis [Antetokounmpo], or it could be coming off the bench. We'll see." Delly signed a four-year deal worth $38.5 million and the Bucks are clearly high on him, but this would be a surprise. On the other hand, Michael Carter-Williams has done little to prove that he's a starting-caliber PG, but this quote certainly doesn't bode well for his outlook. Regardless of who starts at PG, Antetokounmpo will run the offense.
Jul 10 - 10:58 AM

The Cavs have sent Matthew Dellavedova to the Bucks in a sign-and-trade deal.

Milwaukee will be sending over the draft rights to Albert Miralles and cash considerations to Cleveland to execute the deal. Dellavedova will see some extended minutes as a reserve for the Bucks, and this situation could develop into a timeshare between Delly and Michael Carter-Williams. Dellavedova will not be worth drafting in most leagues.

Jul 7 - 5:28 PM

The Cavs will not match Milwaukee's offer sheet to G Matthew Dellavedova, sources told Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com.

This was the expectation and nobody should be surprised. Milwaukee will sign Delly to a four-year deal worth $38.5 million while the Cavs will likely scrape the bottom of the bargain bin to find his replacement.
Jul 4 - 2:14 PM

Restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova and the Bucks have agreed to a four-year, $39 million deal.

The offer sheet hasn't officially been submitted just yet due to league rules. When it is next week, the Cavs will have three days to match this offer, but it seems very unlikely due to how it will hurt their cap number so much. Dellavedova will see a huge bump in playing time and he could take minutes from Michael Carter-Williams. Although, it'll be interesting to see if he can play without LeBron James next to him.
Jul 1 - 4:26 PM

The Bucks are nearing a four-year, $38 million agreement with restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

The Cavs backups are getting paid these days. The Cavs could still match here, but that is a heck of a lot of money for a player who lost his minutes in the postseason. Dellavedova would actually be a candidate to start because the Bucks have said they want someone out there to guard point guards.
Jul 1 - 3:52 PM

The Kings, Hawks, Mavericks and Bucks have all reached out to the camp of restricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

The Cavs are likely going to retain Dellavedova, but they might have a hard time bringing him back if any of those teams offer a huge deal. Dellavedova will head into his age-26 season, so this contract will be at his prime. That said, his ceiling is likely as a career backup.
Jul 1 - 2:29 AM

The Cavs have officially extended a qualifying contract offer to Matthew Dellavedova, making him a restricted free agent.

The Cavs should have limited—at best—interest in bringing Delly back, and it seems likely that another team could value his services more than Cleveland does. He shouldn't be on the fantasy radar regardless of where he lands.
Jun 30 - 4:26 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will compete for Team Australia at the 2016 Olympic Games.

"I'm 100 percent committed to Rio," Dellavedova said. Dellavedova is going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he's reportedly received interest from the Pistons and Bucks. He won't be a fantasy factor regardless of where he winds up.

The Pistons and Bucks are reportedly interested in unrestricted free agent Matthew Dellavedova.

Brian Windhorst of ESPN is reporting that both the Pistons and Bucks sent scouts to the Cavs playoff games, and he believes that those scouts were analyzing Dellavedova's game. Both the Bucks and the Pistons could use a reliable backup point guard, and Windhorst is reporting that they are prepared to offer Dellavedova something in the $10 million range as an unrestricted free agent. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out, but Delly won't be a fantasy option on either club.
