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.

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

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.
Jun 29 - 12:52 PM

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.

Matthew Dellavedova will not be disciplined for his hit on Andre Iguodala in Game 1 on Thursday.

It seemed pretty clear Dellavedova was going for the ball on a strip before he hit Iguodala in the groin. With the Warriors going smaller in their second unit, Dellavedova will have to step up on defense. He played just 11 minutes with a team-worst minus-19 net rating due to guys like Shaun Livingston thriving off the bench for the Warriors. Dellavedova might see fewer minutes.
Jun 4 - 5:32 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

He had an ankle tweak in Game 2, but there was never really much concern. With Kyrie Irving set to play minutes in the upper 30s in a non-garbage time game, there won't be much time available for Dellavedova. Of course, this game could get ugly again.
May 21 - 7:44 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is questionable for Game 3 vs. the Raptors on Saturday.

He is dealing with a left ankle sprain, but he's going to test it out at the morning shootaround before making a decision. If Delly plays it safe and sits out on Saturday, Mo Williams will likely take over the backup PG duties.
May 21 - 10:43 AM

Matthew Dellavedova finished Wednesday's home loss with six points, four rebounds and two assists in a mere six minutes of action.

Delly started the game but was benched after halftime as a precaution, with Dahntay Jones taking over as a starter. Last year's playoff heroics notwithstanding, Dellavedova isn't on the fantasy radar while Kyrie Irving is healthy.
Apr 13 - 11:48 PM

Matthew Dellavedova will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

Kyrie Irving (ankle) is returning to action, so those of you who picked up Dellavedova can move on. He's averaging 7.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.0 boards, 0.6 steals and 1.2 3-pointers off the bench this season.
Apr 5 - 6:50 PM

Matthew Dellavedova started vs. the Hornets on Sunday and notched six points, five rebounds and nine assists in 31 minutes during the Cavs' home victory.

Delly earned the start in place of Kyrie Irving, who is day-to-day with a sprained ankle. His two made field goals were both 3-pointers and he is Tyronn Lue's clear favorite behind Irving, but neither he nor Mo Williams (six points in 13 minutes) is worth owning in typical leagues.
