Kings Sign NBA Champion Guard

NBA champion guard Matthew Dellavedova has reportedly signed a one-year, partially guaranteed deal with the Sacramento Kings, per Michael Scotto of HoopsHype.

The Australian last appeared in the NBA during the 2020-21 season, where he played 13 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

An eight-year NBA veteran, Dellavedova made his name with the Cavaliers, especially during their run to the 2015 NBA Finals versus the Golden State Warriors, where he filled in for an injured Kyrie Irving. 

Though he and the Cavaliers lost the 2015 Finals, Cleveland bounced back the following year by defeating the Warriors via that historic 3-1 comeback and Dellavedova won an NBA championship.

Dellavedova is joining a Kings team that is looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2006. 

Turning 32 years old this September, the 6-foot-3 guard should provide a steady veteran presence and voice in this young Kings locker room, led by a new coach in Mike Brown.
