Undrafted rookie Matthew Dellavedova has signed a two-year contract with the Cavaliers for about $1.3 million, but only a small portion of this season’s deal is guaranteed, a league source confirmed Thursday. The signing was first reported by Australian media.
Dellavedova averaged 2.8 points and 3 assists in five summer league games with the Cavaliers after leaving St. Mary’s as the school’s all-time leader in scoring, assists, games played, free-throw percentage and 3-pointers. He played for the Australian Olympic team last summer, but the biggest knock against him is a lack of athleticism.
Dellavedova has an excellent chance to make the Cavs as a third point guard. They still have one open roster spot remaining.
