3rd team enters Bucks’ trade with Cavs, sending Sam Dekker to Wizards

3rd team enters Bucks’ trade with Cavs, sending Sam Dekker to Wizards

For the Bucks, this is a salary-clearing situation as they'll save $18 million in cap space for the 2019-20 season.

According to Wojnarowski, the Bucks are sending Dellavedova, John Henson and 2021 first and second-round picks to the Cavaliers in exchange for George Hill and Sam Dekker.

Dellavedova spent three seasons in Cleveland as a running mate of LeBron James, before signing a lucrative four-year US$38 million contract with the Bucks in 2016. Furthermore, they acquire a steady point guard in Hill, who has started for deep playoff teams in the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs over the course of his 11-year National Basketball Association career. But, the reality is, it could be much of the same as the Cavs continue to eye the future - which now looks like Duke monster Zion Williamson at pick No.1 in next year's draft.

"We're excited to welcome George and Jason to the Bucks organization", GM Jon Horst said.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to repackage players in other trades before February's trade deadline. The Cavs are re-shaping their roster with an eye on landing a major free agent in 2020, and Hill was no longer part of the long-term plans because of his age and the team's commitment to Sexton's development.

But despite the meetings and ongoing talks, many in Washington remain skeptical of the North Korea's seriousness. His remarks come as the North has protested the sanctions regime, contributing to the recent impasse in U.S.

Following Hill's injuries, Sexton was given the starting point guard role, and has excelled ever since, averaging 17.9 points per game as a starter on 46 percent shooting.

Henson recently underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist.

Smith, 33, is averaging career-lows of 6.7 points and 1.6 rebounds in 11 games this season. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional".

The team is still working on a trade for guard J.R. Smith, as teams like the Houston Rockets and New Orleans Pelicans have reportedly expressed interest, according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor. In 215 career games (31 starts) with the Cavs, he averaged 5.7 points and 3.4 assists in 21.0 minutes per game.
