BREAKING: Matthew Dellavedova Agrees To 4-Year, $38.5 Million Deal With Milwaukee Bucks
Matthew Dellavedova has been a surprisingly good role player with the Cavs over the last couple of years. He was a key contributor in last year’s NBA Finals run, and although he had a bit of a diminished role in this year’s Finals run, there’s no denying Delly’s basketball IQ and chemistry with his teammates was incredible.
We’re only one day into free agency, but Matthrew Dellavedova has agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. It’s a reasonable deal for Delly and Milwaukee.

Since the Cavs extended a qualifying offer to Delly before this free agency period started, they’ll have three days to decide whether they want to match that offer once he signs the contract or else he will be an official member of the Bucks. However, Delly can only sign on July 7th, so the Cavs have about nine days officially to decide on Delly.

The good thing for the Cavs is that they have time to decide what they want to do. They almost certainly want to bring Delly back and hopefully they match that offer.
Stay tuned for the latest on Matthew Dellavedova and the Cavs.
