Report: Cavs Organization ‘Loves’ Free Agent Matthew Dellavedova
- Updated: July 17, 2020
Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com explained how valuable the free agent is to the franchise and how much the organization adores him.
“The organization loves Dellavedova,” Fedor wrote. “He’s an ideal culture piece for a rebuilding team. And he shouldn’t cost much. With few clear opportunities to go elsewhere and land a bigger role, especially with the pandemic causing a currently-unquantifiable salary cap drop, Dellavedova returning on a team-friendly deal might be his best option.”
Dellavedoa, 29, is a fan favorite in Cleveland.
The 2016 champion is known for his gritty hustle and selfless play. In addition, he’s a phenomenal veteran on and off the court.
Sexton, who had a breakout 2019-20 campaign, credited Dellavedova for having a big impact on him this past season. The University of Alabama product put up 20.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season.
As for Dellavedova, he doesn’t provide statistical stardom. He averaged just 3.1 points and 3.2 assists per contest this season. His value comes in a variety of other places.
The Cavs would love to have the veteran back for the 2020-21 season.
