Dellavedova stays with Cavaliers
CLEVELAND — Matthew Dellavedova has hustled his way back to the Cavaliers. Dellavedova, who emerged as an unlikely post-season hero when All-Star guard Kyrie Irving was injured, signed a $1.2 million contract for next season on Monday. He had been a restricted free agent, and although the Cavs signed Mo Williams this summer to be Irving’s primary backup, the team wanted to keep Dellavedova because of the energy he brings off the bench. Dellavedova accepted the Cavs’ qualifying offer and he can be an unrestricted free agent next summer when the league’s salary cap will expand. He made $816,000 last season.
