Cavaliers’ Delly deal
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.
