Potential Knicks free agent targets: Matthew Dellavedova, Cleveland Cavaliers
It’s impossible to find a free agent candidate on the Cleveland Cavaliers’ roster, so don’t get Ron Baker flashbacks in seeing who I’ve picked as a potential target.
Cleveland enters the offseason with a decision to make on Tristan Thompson and continuing their ongoing search of a suitable trade partner for Kevin Love. Besides Thompson, only Ante Zizic and Matthew Dellavedova are free agents (assuming Drummond exercises his player option).
The Knicks absolutely don’t need another big man who can’t shoot past the restricted area, so I guess we are talking about Dellavedova.
The veteran point guard would bring tenacity, and if he can fix his three-point shot, perimeter shooting to New York’s backcourt. He would be an extremely low-cost addition to add depth to the point guard position, which could be needed depending on how Leon Rose shakes up the roster during his first full offseason as team president.
Dellavedova played 57 games for Cleveland this past season, mostly off the bench, averaging 3.2 assists and shooting a career-low 3.1 field goals per game. Yeah, that’s enough talk about Delly.
