“We wish Delly the best as he continues his career in Milwaukee,” said Cavs General Manager David Griffin. “Delly is a special person on and off the court and was a very dedicated, hard worker that grew as part of our team and made significant contributions to our success. Our coaches and his teammates will always appreciate his ‘all in’ approach to the game, as he was ready to contribute whenever his number was called. We know he will continue to grow and succeed as he takes the next steps of his NBA journey with the Bucks.”
Miralles has played his entire professional career overseas. He was originally taken as the 39th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Toronto Raptors.
Dellavedova spent his first three NBA seasons with the Cavaliers and was a part of the 2016 NBA Championship team, averaging 7.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 24.6 minutes in the regular season.
