Milwaukee Bucks trade Matthew Dellavedova to Cleveland Cavaliers for George Hill

But a week is a long time in the National Basketball Association and money talks, the deal set to save the Bucks nearly US$18 million in salary in 2019-20 - cash they can throw at a bumper free agent class that could include the likes of Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving and Klay Thompson.

The Cavs reportedly completed a trade that sent George Hill to the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday in a deal that returned Matthew Dellavedova to Cleveland. "We will continue to look for ways to improve and strengthen our position for the future, while enhancing our ability to compete and grow in the short-term also". Also, they'll have cap space to sign Khris Middleton when he likely hits free agency in 2019.

"Both George and Sam Dekker went about their work here with professionalism and class and we wish them the best". Dellavedova was a member of the Cavaliers' 2016 championship team and averaged 7.5 points per game, 2.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists that season.

It appears that he has helped Cleveland rookie point guard Collin Sexton for when Sexton took over the starting point guard role when Hill was sidelined with a reported shoulder injury, and now on a contending team in Milwaukee, Hill won't be taking minutes away from Sexton in crunch time. He averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds but missed significant time with a severely sprained left ankle. The Cavs have been very aggressive in looking to move out veterans for future picks, now having acquired four future selections in the past 10 days, including a trade that sent Kyle Korver to Utah. He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.

Sexton, the No. 8 overall pick in the June draft, has already heard stories about Dellavedova.

The Washington Wizards joined the trade as a third team and acquired Dekker from the Bucks for Jason Smith.

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.
