On Thursday afternoon the Cleveland Cavaliers extended a qualifying offer to Matthew Dellavedova, with full intention of keeping him around for next season’s campaign. That job will be a tough one, with as many as five teams lining up for the services of the 25 year-old Australian.

Team’s face an uphill battle in signing the backup the point guard, as nobody will have the opportunity of having a sit down face-to-face meeting with him personally. Dellavedova is currently back at home in Australia preparing himself for the Boomers run in the upcoming Olympics.
With that being said, the Milwaukee Bucks, Sacramento Kings, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks are all said to have reached out to Dellavedova’s management team, and according to cleveland.com, the interest is mutual.
If any team agrees to terms with Delly, the Cavaliers will have 72 hours to match any such offer to keep him in Cleveland.
