Trade likely to change Delly’s role

The Milwaukee Bucks may have made a positive start to the NBA 2017-18 season but Matthew Dellavedova’s future at the team remains uncertain.

Now with a 6-6 win-loss ratio to start the season, Milwaukee acquired the services of former Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe in a trade last week — a move that will likely change Dellavedova’s role at the Bucks.

Already playing in a back-up position to Malcolm Brogdon, Dellavedova will likely be bumped back in the rotation behind Bledsoe according to many NBA pundits, who now predict the Maryborough-product will either have his playing minutes reduced or be traded by Milwaukee.

Dellavedova has played an average of 20 minutes across the 12 games of this season, returning 5.7 points and 3.3 assists per game.

The 27-year-old’s most recent game was one of his best of the season as he put up 10 points, dished off three assists and pulled in four rebounds in a 98-90 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
