Matthew Dellavedova scored a season-high 18 points against the Nets on Saturday with two rebounds, six assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.
He was cooking late in the game with 12 of his 18 in the fourth to help his team get the win. Dellavedova's six makes from the line were a season high while his six makes from the field were, as well. He's going to be up-and-down and has a low upside, but he's worth a look. Dec 3 - 8:23 PM

Matthew Dellevedova scored nine points with four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

He's seen a slight dip in minutes due to how he's missing shots and how Malcom Brogdon is playing well. In his last seven, Dellavedova made just 33.3 percent from the field, including just 26.7 percent on his two-point shots. He does still have some value because of his dimes and steals, but he's a drop candidate to get a hotter free agent.

Matthew Dellavedova made a season-high three 3-pointers on Friday, finishing with 11 points, eight assists, three rebounds and one steal.

Delly logged 29 minutes, which is his average, and this was one of his better lines all season. With a low usage rate (15.2 percent) and poor efficiency, he's nothing more than an assists specialist. There are more appealing guards on most waiver wires.
Nov 25 - 10:39 PM

Matthew Dellavedova missed all seven shots from the field and didn't go to the line against the Heat on Thursday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

He's struggling again. In his last five, Dellavedova has made just 23.5 percent from the field, averaging 4.2 points, 3.4 boards, 7.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.4 treys. He is still getting 29 minutes per game and his playing time seems to he safe, so his owners should hold steady unless it's to add a hot free agent.
Nov 17 - 10:09 PM

Matthew Dellavedova handed out 12 assists against the Pelicans on Thursday with seven points, five rebounds and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

It's just one assist off his career high and his highest total as a Buck. On the other hand, Dellavedova didn't seem to have much confidence in his shot today, making just 2-of-7 from the field. He's also coming off a 1-of-7 from the field. He'll look to get his shot working against the Grizzlies on Saturday, but he's doing enough in other areas to be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 10 - 10:40 PM

Matthew Dellavedova played 33 minutes on Sunday but he finished with two points, six assists, five rebounds and five turnovers, going 1-of-7 from the field and 0-of-3 from downtown.

The Bucks were just 6-of-29 from deep as a team but that's unlikely to bother coach Jason Kidd, who has encouraged high-volume attempts. "If we can get around that 30 mark [for attempted 3-pointers] we would like to make more than 10," Kidd said. Only four teams in the league are taking more than 30 triples per game this season, and an emphasis on perimeter shooting can only be a good thing for guys like Dellavedova, Tony Snell and Mirza Teletovic.
Nov 6 - 10:29 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored five points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and five turnovers in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

He was in foul trouble and he just wasn't playing well in this game. Dellavedova was faring well in his previous games, averaging 11.5 points, 3.3 boards, 6.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 treys in 31.3 minutes per game. He's not going to save your season, but Delly should have enough grit to be kept on all standard-league rosters.
Nov 3 - 10:49 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 14 points with three rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one turnover in 36 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

That's a gritty line right there. His rapport with Giannis Antetokounmpo is already the best Antetokounmpo has ever played with, so Dellavedova is locked in for minutes in the mid 30s. He won't score this much and this line is somewhat close to his ceiling, but Dellavedova is worth owning in standard leagues.
Oct 30 - 12:12 AM

Matthew Dellavedova thrived in 25 minutes vs. the Pacers, racking up nine points on 4-of-4 shooting, seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Delly looks mighty comfortable playing alongside Giannis Antetokounmpo. The trade sending Michael-Carter Williams to Chicago has solidified Dellavedova as a major player in the Bucks' backcourt -- he doesn't have huge statistical upside, but is a fine late-round option for owners in need of another guard.
Oct 19 - 10:34 PM

Matthew Dellavedova handed out eight assists against the Bulls on Saturday, adding nine points, two rebounds and three turnovers in 27 minutes.

There was never really any doubt he'd keep Michael Carter-Williams on the second unit, but now it's almost official with MCW heading to Chicago. Dellavedova leads the Bucks in assists per game in the preseason and he's also first in 3-pointers per game, too. He's not going to be used too much on offense, but it looks like Delly will clear 30 minutes and should effective as a catch-and-shoot guy. If you completely whiff on point guard, Dellavedova is in the mix as a late pick.
Oct 15 - 11:53 PM

Matthew Dellavedova scored 11 points off the bench with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes on Monday.

Coach Jason Kidd said he wanted to start a rookie, so that's why Dellavedova didn't start. He's mostly known for his grit, but Dellavedova is actually very efficient as a catch-and-shoot guy. He showed some good rapport with Giannis Antetokounmpo and seemed to be at the right spot along the long line, especially with GA in the post. That said, Delly won't have much fantasy upside.
Oct 3 - 10:52 PM

Matthew Dellavedova said making the postseason will be the "main target" for the Bucks this upcoming season.

Dellavedova also said that he expects to take on more of a leadership role with the Bucks, and that he's really excited to be able to learn from head coach Jason Kidd. He could challenge Michael Carter-Williams for the starting point guard position in Milwaukee, but with Giannis Antetokounmpo set to run the offense, it's unlikely Delly will be able to provide much to owners in standard leagues.

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.
Aug 13 - 12:55 PM

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.
