Dellavedova averaged 5.5 points, 3.7 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 447 career games. He is a 36.3% 3-pointer with 400 career 3-pointers.

Dellavedova played last season for Melbourne United of the Australian National Basketball League. He averaged 10.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 4.8 assists on 38.9% shooting from the field and 35.8% from three-pointers over 30 games.
