Posted December 09, 2018

The Washington Wizards entered the mix as the third team in the deal, acquiring Sam Dekker for Jason Smith and a future second-round pick.

The Wizards acquired Sam Dekker from Cleveland via Milwaukee and swapped second-round draft picks with Cleveland, with the Cavs sending the Wizards' 2021 pick back to Washington for the Wizards' 2022 selection.

The Cavaliers have acquired guard Matthew Dellavedova and forward/center John Henson from the Milwaukee Bucks as part of a three-team trade, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman announced on Friday, December 7.

The 32-year old Hill is under contract through the end of next season, at which point he will become an unrestricted free agent.

According to Wojnarowski, though, the "first may not convey until as late as 2023 because the Bucks owe a future first to the Phoenix Suns that might not convey until 2021".

In 13 games played this season, Hill is averaging 10.8 points and 2.8 assists on 26.5 minutes per game. Milwaukee also receives power forward Jason Smith in the trade. He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.

"I think it will be good for our team, not just for myself, but for our team". "They say he practices hard, too, so we're going to have some battles".

In the trade, the Cavs created a trade exception of almost $2.8 million that can be used up to a year from a day of the deal with Milwaukee.

Dellavedova's scrappiness endeared him to Cleveland fans during his three seasons with the Cavs, who didn't re-sign the player known as "Delly" after winning the 2016 title.

Henson recently underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist. The University of Wisconsin product hasn't lived up to that status during stints with the Rockets, Clippers, and Cavaliers, but the athletic 6-foot-9 forward makes for a potentially nice fit with a Wizards team looking to play up-tempo. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional". He averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds but missed significant time with a severely sprained left ankle. In three seasons with Cleveland, the Aussie averaged 5.8 points, 3.7 assists and 0.5 steals in 21.0 minutes per game while shooting 39.5 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from three-point range. He has been out most of this season with a wrist injury.
