MILWAUKEE -- It was an eventful summer for Matthew Dellavedova.Championship with the Cleveland Cavaliers in June. New $38 million contract from the Milwaukee Bucks in July. Olympic run with Australia in Rio in August. Engagement to his longtime girlfriend in September.What is it? Dellavedova said Tuesday morning after Bucks shootaround before the point guards first game against his former team, trying to recall a phrase. The most stressful things are a city change, a job change and an engagement. No, Im only joking. Its been really good.The storybook couple of months typifies Dellavedovas surprising rise from the tiny town of Maryborough, Victoria in Australia to the best basketball league in the world. Its a story so interesting, in fact, that a pair of Hollywood producers have teamed up with Dellavedova to make a movie about his life with production slated to begin in 2017.Well, my Aussie agent got approached by these two guys from L.A. and initially I told him no and he said, Just listen to what I have to say, Dellavedova recalled of his conversation with his manager, Bruce Kaider. And yeah, got talking to them and they just thought it would be good to hopefully inspire kids that you can make it from anywhere. I mean, I grew up in a pretty small country town in Australia and I wound up making it to the NBA. So I think if we do it the right way, which I feel pretty good about, hopefully it will work out well and can inspire kids that no dream is too big to dream.The producers, Zachary Green and Jason Shuman, have worked on notable films such as Lone Survivor, and convinced the 26-year-old known as Delly that they will serve his story appropriately.Dellys inspirational story about overcoming the odds is one everyone can relate to, Kaider said in a statement. In real-life, it played out just like a movie.The fourth-year veteran was unaware of if the film would be released in Australia and the United States or just his native land when it is eventually finished.Well see, Dellavedova said. Its very, very early stages. Well see.He also wouldnt mention which actor he would prefer to slip on his No. 8 uniform to play the role, although he did get a chuckle when one reporter suggested Brad Pitt.Well have to see if anybody wants to, Dellavedova said. Well see.As for seeing his former teammates for the first time Tuesday night, Dellavedova sounded appreciative of his time with the Cavs.It was tough to decide to leave because youre coming off the highest of highs and I loved my time in Cleveland, Dellavedova said. Fun team, great group of guys, great organization and fans obviously. But I had an opportunity here that I couldnt pass up to see how good I could be as a starting point guard and really challenge myself. You never know if or when that opportunity will come along again.He will receive his championship ring during a pregame ceremony when the Cavs host the Bucks at Quicken Loans Arena on December 21.It will be a good Christmas present, Dellavedova said.And perhaps good fodder for a scene in his movie to boot.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia -- Distance running great Haile Gebrselassie was elected president of the Ethiopian Athletics Federation on Saturday after saying the sport in his country had been stained by doping allegations and he wanted to clear that up.The two-time Olympic champion in the 10,000 meters received nine of the 15 votes in a ballot of Ethiopias regional athletics leaders. He beat two other candidates, with incumbent EAF president Alebachew Nigusse not standing for re-election.The 43-year-old Gebrselassie was elected for a four-year term.Gebrselassie is probably Ethiopias greatest ever runner, winning two Olympic and four world titles in a career that spanned over 20 years and also included a series of major marathon victories and world records in distances from 5,000 meters up to the marathon.I feel so honoured to be elected president of the Ethiopian Athletics Federation! Will work on a great future for Ethiopian athletics! Gebrselassie wrote on his official Twitter account.In an interview with The Associated Press ahead of the election, Gebrselassie said Ethiopian athletics was not on the right track.The country was underperforming in comparison to East African neighbor and distance running rival Kenya, Gebrselassie said, but also had its reputation undermined by a string of doping cases.Six Ethiopian athletes were suspended on suspicion of ddoping this year -- two of them have now been banned -- and the World Anti-Doping Agency warned the countrys authorities that they needed to strengthen their anti-doping programs.ddddddddddddOur countrys name has been mentioned alongside other countries for doping, Gebrselassie told AP. One of my first jobs if I get elected is to make sure that athletes could win without doping by showing them that Im a living proof.Instead of challenging WADA and other anti-doping agencies, we have to be able to admit that we have a problem and then work hard to address it. I believe that Ethiopias doping problem is not deep. But certainly there are signs.Ethiopia has had to live in Kenyas shadow in recent years in terms of success on the track, a trend that continued at the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro where Ethiopia won one gold medal in track and field compared top Kenyas six. Changing that was a priority, Gebrselassie said.The state of athletics in Ethiopia is not on the right track so I dont want to sit idle and watch it turn into ruins, Gebrselassie said. Ethiopias athletics potential is probably four times bigger than our neighbor Kenya. Our main problem is that we havent had a leadership that could bring out and nurture that talent. ' ' '
