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.

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.

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.

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

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.
