Cavs trade George Hill to Bucks for Dellavedova, Henson, picks

The Cavs had received lots of interest in Hill this past week, and according to Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com, "determined Milwaukee is the best fit", as the Cavs wanted a first-rounder to take on the contracts of Dellavedova and Henson.

Another popular Cavaliers player is coming "home".

The Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards have agreed on a three-team trade that will send guard George Hill to Milwaukee, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Washington trades Jason Smith and a second-round pick to Milwaukee.

The first-round pick in 2021 is protected, the person said. The acquisition of Dellavedova is icing on the cake, considering he was a major fan favorite who helped lead the franchise to their lone National Basketball Association title in 2016.

Dellavedova spent the first three seasons of his National Basketball Association career in Cleveland, posting averages of 5.7 points, 3.4 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game. Dekker has also been sidelined with a severely sprained left ankle.

The 28-year-old Dellavedova will get a chance re-start his career with the Cavs.

Henson, 27, hasn't played in a month, recently had wrist surgery and is expected to miss several months.

Hill's departure will give rookie guard Collin Sexton, the No. 8 overall pick in this year's draft, more room to grow. He is a power forward and center who is averaging 5 points and 5 rebounds in 14 games. The Australian had been buried on Milwaukee's bench and is averaging just 1.7 points and 2.4 assists in 12 games.

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