The Cleveland Cavaliers don’t have a ton of point guard depth on their roster. Hoping to change that, they have extended an invite to undrafted rookie point guard Matthew Dellavedova according to the Herald Sun:

But “Delly”, the 22-year-old who started in the point guard role for Australia at the London Olympics last year, simply did what he always does, working his butt off on the training track to prove the disbelievers wrong.

Right now he has an invitation back to the Cleveland Cavaliers pre-season camp in October and it’s not a “find your own way over and we’ll take a look at you” but a genuine shot at a roster spot with the rebuilding franchise.

“Cleveland is looking for a third point guard and I have a shot at it,” Dellavedova said today.

The Cavs already boast Melbourne-born superstar point man Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters but clearly Cleveland likes what Dellavedova – with his “team first” mentality – potentially could bring.

He worked hard for new coach Mike Brown at the Cavaliers’ camp, and enjoyed a very solid NBA Summer League with the team in Las Vegas.
