CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers 2016 championship team has been nearly entirely dismantled over the past four years, but one member is remaining a Cavalier for at least one more season, according to ESPN reports.
Matthew Dellavedova has agreed to re-sign with the Cavs on a one-year minimum deal, according to ESPN’s Olgun Uluc and Adrian Wojnarowski.
One-year, minimum deal on Dellavedova's return to the Cavaliers, source tells ESPN https://t.co/2dzHpRBjXi— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) November 23, 2020
Dellevadova, a fan favorite from the 2016 squad, left the Cavs right after winning the championship as part of a sign-and-trade deal with the Milwaukee Bucks. He returned to the Cavs in 2018.
With Tristan Thompson reportedly reaching a deal in free agency with the Boston Celtics, Dellavedova and Kevin Love are the last remaining members of the 2016 championship team still with the Cavs.
Over his seven-year career, Dellavedova has averaged 3.7 assists and 5.6 points. Last season, Dellavedova started in just four of the 57 games he played in, but his veteran leadership and history in Cleveland makes him a valuable asset in the locker room.
The Cavs also recently acquired center JaVale McGee in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers.
