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 Sam Dekker.
The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Cavs acquired George Hill at the trade deadline last season from the Sacramento Kings. Hill is making $19 million this year, but has just $1 million guaranteed in 2019-20. He is averaging 10.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game on the season. With the Cavs rebuilding and playing rookie Collin Sextona lot, there was no point to have Hill on the roster.
Cleveland traded for Sam Dekker from the Los Angeles Clippers before the season started. His short stint with the Cavs is over. He played in nine games this season and averaged 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists per contest.
