The Milwaukee Bucks have been busy this afternoon and their fan base has to love the moves they have made. Just minutes after signing Mirza Teletovic to a three-year deal, the Bucks were able to sign Cleveland Cavaliers’ restricted free agent point guard Matthew Dellavedova to a four-year offer sheet.
According to a report from Zach Lowe, the deal is worth $38 million and the Cavaliers will have three days to match the offer sheet or let him walk.

Needless to say, this is an interesting move for the Bucks. Jason Kidd is always interested in bringing in more talent at the point guard position and Dellavedova definitely has talent. Whether he is capable of taking on a much bigger role than he had in Cleveland or not is another question.
Another question is whether he was simply a product of playing alongside LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.
Last season with the Cavaliers, Dellavedova ended up averaging 7.5 points, 4.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game. He will always bring energy to the court, which is one area that the Bucks needed help. This move will be a very solid depth addition for the Bucks, although they better not be hoping for much more.
Expect to hear more news about Dellavedova in the near future as the Cavaliers have to make a quick decision. They value him, but this deal is likely out of their price range.
