Delly agrees to a 4 year/$38.4M offer sheet from the Bucks

Matthew Dellevadova looks set to join fellow Aussie, Thon Maker, as a Milwaukee Buck next season.

Delly has reportedly agreed to an offer sheet from the Bucks, a 4 year/$38.4 (USD) deal, that represents a significant pay rise for the Aussie.

No deals can be signed until July 7, when a league-wide moratorium lifts, a period the league office typically uses to calculate and officially set the salary cap.

As a restricted free agent, the Cavs also have three days in which to match the Bucks’ offer once Delly signs, though it appears unlikely at this point.

Delly just completed a career season, posting career-highs across the board. In 76 games throughout the regular season, Delly averaged 7.5 points, 4.4 assists and 24.6 minutes of court time. He also became a supreme marksman from deep, shooting 3-pointers at a 41 percent clip.

Despite a limited role during the playoffs, Delly solidified himself as a key NBA rotation player, and ultimately became an NBA champion.

Accordingly, the suitors came calling.

The Bucks have shown significant interest in Delly for some time, including sending scouts, and Jason Kidd, to some of the Cavs’ games during the playoffs.

It’s looks like they’ve got their man.
