Cava­liers’ Delly deal

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

MATTHEW Dellave­dova did not get a ma­jor pay rise, but he will be back along­side LeBron James as Cleve­land Cava­liers pur­sue the NBA ti­tle.

The Cava­liers an­nounced yesterday that the hard- nosed Aus­tralian point guard had agreed to re­turn to the team where he be­came a hero dur­ing last sea­son’s play­offs.

Dellave­dova agreed to ac­cept the one- year, $ 1.7 mil­lion deal the team of­fered him last month. It’s well be­low the re­ported $ 5.5 mil­lion a year Dellave­dova and his agent were ask­ing for af­ter his head­line- mak­ing per­for­mances dur­ing the NBA play­offs.
