Following a snake bitten year in terms of injuries, Matthew Dellavedova will look to get back on the right track in what will be his third year for the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2018-19 NBA season.
Very little has gone the way of Matthew Dellavedova’s liking since he joined the Milwaukee Bucks two summers ago in free agency.
Whether it’s been battling through inconsistencies for extended periods or being sidelined with injuries for lengthy layoffs, it’s largely been one thing after another for Dellavedova during his two-plus years in Milwaukee.
Considering how he carved out his place in the league after going undrafted to then latch on with the Cleveland Cavaliers and eventually become a rotation piece on a championship winning team, Delly’s been no stranger to having to endure hardships to get to where he is today.
But given the fact that the Bucks expected him to help shore up the team’s point guard play by identifying his skill set as a feasible one next to superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, he’s simply had trouble holding up his end of the bargain (though, some of that has been through no fault of his own, to be clear).
Now Dellavedova enters the upcoming 2018-19 season as the third guard behind Eric Bledsoe and Malcolm Brogdon within the Bucks’ point guard corps and some of that may be subject to debate, depending on how fans view rookie Donte DiVincenzo‘s natural position within the team’s roster and system.
How much new Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer leans on him throughout the year is just one of many questions revolving around Dellavedova as he looks to reverse the trends that have come to define his tenure in Milwaukee thus far.
So without further ado, let’s preview Matthew Dellavedova’s 2018-19 season by looking at some goals he could set and knock down for himself.
