One of Bendigo Basketball's greatest products in Matthew Dellavedova is preparing for his return to the Australian basketball scene.
After 12 years in the United States playing college basketball and in the NBA with Cleveland and the Milwaukee Bucks, Dellavedova is pleased to be back playing in Australia.
"Having played with a few of the boys before with the Boomers - Goulding, Barlow & Newley, I know it's going to be a fun season," Dellavedova said.
"I appreciate the warm welcome from the fans and everyone at the club and can't wait to get the season going."
The 31-year-old heads into the season on the back of a history-making bronze medal win at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics after the Boomers defeated Slovenia 107-93.
The Maryborough-native will start the NBL22 season with Melbourne United on the road on Sunday December 5 against the Sydney Kings, before he will return to Victoria for a string of home games at John Cain arena.
