Matthew Dellavedova
PG, 6’4, 198lbs, 26 years old, 4 years of experience

Dellavedova was exposed and over-exposed at the start of the year, thrown into a starting role ill-fitting to his limited skill set. It was not pleasant watching him chase opposing star point guards while being pretty much unable to get into the paint without a double-screen himself. The effort was there, yet the talent was not. The shot suffered a bit, and his fairly milquetoast contributions of spot-ups, occasional low-percentage floaters and relatively mistake-free passing is always going to be better suited to the bench. And with the Brogdon Breakout, that’s where he found himself. It was for the best.

Player Plan: Three years and circa. $28.8 million remaining, with no options. That’s quite a lot of money for a backup point guard, especially a not particularly good back-up point guard. If someone should ever want that contract, let them have it.

Cleveland - Andrew Bynum, C.J. Miles, Matthew Dellavedova and Henry Sims: Dellavedova has played well in a third string point guard role and will surely survive. Miles may only be the best of a poor bunch at small forward, yet it will cost only about $1.3 million to keep him, an acceptable amount for a team with playoff ambitions. Sims may get cut considering that he will spend much of his time under contract on assignment in the D-League anyway, although he is ever improving and may stick. As for Bynum, he may be traded first, but waived anyway.
