The Wizards joined as a third team in the trade, acquiring Sam Dekker from the Cavaliers, while Jason Smith and a second-round draft pick will be traded to the Bucks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers have re-acquired point guard Matthew Dellavedova, along with center John Henson, a 2021 first-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round selection from the Milwaukee Bucks in return for point guard George Hill and forward Sam Dekker, according to several sources. Hill returned from injury on December 1 against the Raptors.

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

Cavs fans must be thrilled to have Matthew Dellavedova back in Cleveland. 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. But the Cavs are thinking about the future and by moving Hill and Dekker, they've picked up more assets.

Cleveland recently traded sharpshooter Kyle Korver to Utah for two picks in 2020 and 2021.The Cavs are targeting 2020 to land a big-name free agent, and should have plenty of salary-cap space to add one.

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

Hill, who was acquired by the Cavaliers from Sacremento at the trade deadline last season, is now averaging 10.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month. He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.

The move will save the Bucks almost $20 million in salary next season, Wojnarowski added.
