Milwaukee Bucks trading Matthew Dellavedova back to Cleveland Cavaliers

Milwaukee Bucks trading Matthew Dellavedova back to Cleveland Cavaliers

As far as the Cavaliers are concerned, this plays into their mindset of rebuilding.

Two reports indicated National Basketball Association forward Sam Dekker was being traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Milwaukee Bucks. Dekker was sent to Washington as part of the deal.

The Cavaliers and Wizards will swap second round picks, with Cleveland getting Washington's second in 2021 and sending their second in 2022.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to re-package players in other trades before February's trade deadline.

Hill recently returned after missing 11 games with a shoulder injury, and the Cavs have been shopping him around for a deal. Both Henson and Dellavedova, who won a title with the Cavs in 2016, have one year and about $10 million left on their contracts. Dekker is now dealing with a sprained ankle that has sidelined him for a month, but he was converting on 38.4 percent of his 3-point attempts before the injury.

Pakistan star Yasir Shah makes history against New Zealand
Yasir began the Abu Dhabi Test with 195 wickets in 32 Tests and on the opening day grabbed three early wickets. This was hugely significant for New Zealand, who so rarely win series of three tests or more away from home.

The Cavs moved veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz late last month in exchange for two second-round picks.

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

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 averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.

For the Bucks, this is a salary-clearing situation as they'll save $18 million in cap space for the 2019-20 season. He is averaging 5.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game this season and shooting 46.3 percent from the floor and 35.5 percent from beyond the arc.
