Cleveland fans are welcoming back Matthew Dellavedova with open arms.

Before he even stepped foot on the court, Delly was welcomed back to the Q with a standing ovation.

“I appreciate the love from everyone,” he said. “It makes me feel very welcome.”

"Delly" began his career with the Cavaliers in 2014 and was a key player when the Cavs won their championship in 2016.

“It makes me feel great,” he said. “My time here was really special and I loved every minute of it. It makes me excited to get back out there and play for everyone in this city because it’s a special place.”

Cleveland acquired Dellavedova in a three-team trade on Friday with the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards.
