Maryborough's Matthew Dellavedova is officially a Cleveland Cavaliers player.
The former Bendigo Junior Braves point guard was this morning named in the Cavs 15-man roster for the upcoming NBA season.
"Exciting to be playing for the @cavs this year! Gotta keep working hard!" Dellavedova tweeted this morning.
Dellavedova had a standout US college career with St Mary's, but was not selected in this year's NBA draft.
He was invited by the Cavs to play in their Summer League team where he impressed coaches and team-mates with his leadership abilities.
Dellavedova earned a place at the Cavs training camp and sealed his berth on the roster by playing some big minutes in pre-season games.
The Cavs start the regular season with a home game against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday morning AEST.
