After being traded from the Milwaukee Bucks back to his original NBA side the Cleveland Cavaliers last month, Matthew Dellavedova’s court time has more than doubled.
While at a star-studded Bucks side, Dellavedova played just 12 games between October and December 2018 and averaged a career low of eight minutes per game.
Since the trade back to Cleveland under a month ago, Dellavedova has played 10 games, two of which were against his old side, and is now averaging more than 19 minutes on court for the Cavs.
Dellavedova first made his NBA debut with Cleveland in 2013 and went on to win an NBA championship in 2016 before he made the move to the Bucks.
Delly fever has well and truly taken over Cleveland, with Cavs fans welcoming back the so-called outback Jesus with open arms.
Taking to his own YouTube channel a week after the trade, Dellavedova spoke about resettling in Cleveland and thanked Cavs fans for their warm re-welcome.
