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

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

Both Henson and Dellavedova, who won a title with the Cavs in 2016, have one year and about $10 million left on their contracts.

The NBA championship victor is reportedly on the verge of being involved in a multi-player trade between his Milwaukee Bucks and the Cavaliers.

The Bucks will send John Henson with Dellavedova to Cleveland in exchange for Cavaliers guards George Hill and Sam Dekker, per Wojnarowski. Cleveland will receive the 2022 second-rounder while Washington will receive a 2021 pick.

The Washington Wizards joined the trade as a third team and acquired Dekker from the Bucks for Jason Smith. Furthermore, they acquire a steady point guard in Hill, who has started for deep playoff teams in the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs over the course of his 11-year National Basketball Association career.

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.

The incoming Democratic governor of Wisconsin says he will make a personal appeal to outgoing Republican Gov. Michigan Republicans have also passed last-minute bills to gut the minimum wage and paid sick leave.

The trade is the second of it's kind for the struggling Cavaliers this season, who continue to unload veterans for future assets.

Hill, 32, is averaging 10.8 points and shooting 46 percent on 3-pointers, though he missed 11 games with a shoulder injury. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month.

Henson has played all seven years of his career as a forward and centre with the Bucks, averaging 5.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game in 13.4 minutes in 2018-19.

Milwaukee will save $18 million in salary next season with the deal, too, something that will likely help it bolster its roster.
