NBA ROLE: CRAFTY BACKUP PG

 

Feisty Australian guard Matthew Dellavedova is one of the most annoying, yet effective, PG defenders in the league; undrafted outta St. Mary’s, Delly is a former SLG (Summer League Guy) who worked hard to earn a spot; relative unknown before the 2015 Finals – Delly gained national notoriety by frustrating Stephen Curry (GSW) (before Steph realized he was Steph) & throwing lobs to Tristan Thompson; competent set up man off the bench – nice lob passer, knows when and where to find teammates; decent shooter (though Delly’s form shouldn't be replicated) – jumper has crossed over into respectable range but don't expect huge points on a nightly basis; needs to work on efficiency between the lines; scrappy dog: sells out for loose balls, mixes it up on D & causes controlled chaos; BACK in Cleveland – veteran mentor/backup
