Dellave­dova stays with Cava­liers

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

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.
