Milwaukee Bucks guard Matthew Dellavedova is no stranger to getting acclimated to a new place. Two offseasons ago, Dellavedova left the Cleveland Cavaliers following their 2016 NBA Championship and took a free-agent deal with Milwaukee.
It was the first time that the now fifth-year guard wouldn’t be wearing Wine and Gold, which obviously would take some adjusting. Now a year in with the team, Dellavedova, along with the rest of the Bucks, will look to help newly-acquired teammate Eric Bledsoe adjusted to life in Milwaukee.
“We got great guys in this locker room so the adjustment is pretty easy,” Dellavedova told Amico Hoops. “Everyone helps out, the organization as a whole helps out and really helps you settle in. So I’m sure he’ll have no worries there.”
Bledsoe was acquired Tuesday morning in a deal that sent Greg Monroe and a protected first-round pick to the Phoenix Suns. Bledsoe brings a lot to the Bucks, including the plans of their backcourt that features Dellavedova and reigning rookie of the year Malcolm Brogdon.
Dellavedova expounded upon that thought before Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
“Explosiveness. He can really push the ball,” Delly said of Bledsoe. “A strong guard that can guard as well. I think it’s gonna make us even more fast-paced.”
With a backcourt that currently provides twenty-five points a night, Bledsoe only adds to the explosiveness of the Milwaukee guard play. Bledsoe is expected to be available Friday for Milwaukee’s game against the San Antonio Spurs.
