Cavaliers ship George Hill to Bucks, get Dellavedova back

The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly trading George Hill and Sam Dekker for two players and first round and second round draft picks, according to NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

Australian point guard Matthew Dellavedova was today traded back to the team where he won an NBA Championship in 2016, but there were multiple layers to why the veteran was dealt by the Milwaukee Bucks.

Smith asked to be traded by the Cavaliers earlier this year when the team started to cut his playing time in an effort to give younger players more experience on the court.

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.

Henson (6-11, 219), who is in his eighth National Basketball Association season, has spent his entire career with Milwaukee, appearing in 405 games (152 starts) and averaging 7.8 points on.539 shooting, 5.4 rebounds and 1.48 blocks in 20.1 minutes per game.

Hill, 32, is averaging 10.8 points and 2.8 assists in 13 games this season. He carries career averages of 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds.

Kelly had sought to bring more order and stability to a White House that has often been chaotic under the unpredictable Trump. According to Axios , Kelly will be replaced by Nick Ayers , who now works as chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence .

There was an urgency to get the deal agreed to before 6 p.m. on Friday because only players on rosters by then can be re-packaged in other trades before February's deadline. Cleveland recently traded sharpshooter Kyle Korver to Utah for two picks in 2020 and 2021. Smith has averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in almost 11 minutes per game this season in Washington.

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

Brian Windhorst explained it as a strategic move by the Cavaliers to take on money because they want to acquire draft picks. "We lost George, which was my vet, so I'll have to talk to Dellavedova and he'll be able to lead me how George led me".

Dekker, who starred at Wisconsin before becoming the No. 18 overall pick in 2015, has been out for more than a month with an ankle injury.

The Cleveland Cavaliers continue to be proactive in their rebuild. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional".
