  • Matthew Dellavedova returns to Cleveland as a cult figure in the club’s 2016 NBA title run

The Cleveland Cavaliers and Milwaukee Bucks have completed a trade that will send guard Matthew Dellavedova and center John Henson to the Cavs in exchange for guard George Hill and forward Sam Dekker.

The Cavaliers and Wizards will swap second round picks, with Cleveland getting Washington's second in 2021 and sending their second in 2022. The Bucks will also send Cleveland a 2021 first and second round draft pick. Hill returned from injury on December 1 against the Raptors. 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 three-team trade puts the Bucks in a better financial position to keep their team intact.

The undersized point guard averaged 5.7 points and 3.4 assists per game during his three seasons in Cleveland, including an epic 2015 Finals performance that saw him score 20 points in Game 3 while leading the Cavaliers to victory.


There was an urgency to get the deal agreed to before 6 p.m. on Friday because only players on rosters by then can be re-packaged in other trades before February's deadline.

The Cavs remain active in trade talks and according to Fedor, are "willing to take on extra salary" for more draft picks. In 12 games this year with the Bucks, Dellavedova was averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists. He's averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 14 games. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month.

Dellavedova is due $9.6 million over each of the next two seasons, while Henson is due over $18 million until he hits free agency in 2020.
