Matthew Dellavedova is headed home.

The Cavaliers will receive guard Matthew Dellavedova, centre John Henson, a 2021 first-round pick (from the Bucks) and 2022 second round pick (from the Wizards), while forward Sam Dekker will head from the Cavaliers to the Wizards.

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. Milwaukee has agreed to trade Dekker to the Washington Wizards for center Jason Smith and a future second-round pick.


The deal also has implications for Thon Maker, who looks set to establish himself as Milwaukee's backup big man moving forward, with Henson now in Cleveland, although he will have to compete with Smith for those minutes. The Cavs have been very aggressive in looking to move out veterans for future picks, now having acquired four future picks in the past 10 days, including a trade that sent Kyle Korver to Utah. For The Athletic, CBA and salary cap expert Danny Leroux breaks down Friday's Cavs-Bucks-Wizards trade from each team's perspective for the near and long terms. He is averaging 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

Australian guard Dellavedova was a 2015-16 champion with the Cavaliers after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2013, and returns to the squad after two full seasons with the Bucks. He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month.

Hill, 32, is averaging 10.8 points and 2.8 assists in 13 games this season.
