According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, and David Aldridge of TNT, it appears that Matthew Dellavedova has reached a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks for just north of $38.4 million over four years. Because Dellavedova is a restricted free agent, the Cavs will have three days after his signing to determine whether or not they want to match. Players can officially sign starting on July 6.

This presents an interesting choice for the Cavs. On the one hand, Delly shot over 40% from three point range over the year and is a capable defender. He is a fantastic fit with LeBron James, and LeBron James isn't going anywhere. On the other, they just won a championship without him really having a role. If the Cavs let him walk, Mo Williams would have a larger set of responsibilities, and the Cavs would likely need to look for more wing depth. I'd match this, but if the Cavs go another route it's not the end of the world.
