Cavs’ Matthew Dellavedova will wear No. 18

Cavs’ Matthew Dellavedova will wear No. 18

Cleveland got guard Matthew Dellavedova, centre John Henson and future first- and second-round picks, all from Milwaukee. The move to Washington could provide Dekker with a small role in the frontcourt but he is not expected to be part of the rotation anytime soon.

Hill (6-3, 188) appeared in 37 games (all starts) for Cleveland after being acquired by the Cavaliers on February 8, 2018, averaging 9.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 27.4 minutes per game over that span. Dekker (6-9, 230), who was acquired by Cleveland on August 7, 2018, played in nine games (five starts) for the Cavs this season, averaging 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.22 steals in 18.8 minutes per game.

The original trade included Cleveland forward Sam Dekker, but he has been rerouted to the Washington Wizards.

Hill has averaged 10.8 points and 2.8 assists so far this season in Cleveland, and is shooting better than 51 percent from the field and an impressive 46.4 percent from the 3-point line.

One of the few players left on the Cavs' championship-winning squad, Thompson was asked to recall his favourite "Delly memory".

Milwaukee will save $18 million in salary next season with the deal, too, something that will likely help it bolster its roster. That was an impetus for getting the deal done now. The Cavs elected to trade another veteran guard just less than two weeks after they traded Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz.

Dellavedova is averaging just 1.7 points per game this season but still holds locker room value for the Cavaliers

So congrats to Cleveland, who got their favorite Aussie back. He's averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 14 games. He's good at throwing lobs to me, so I'm really happy about that.

Sexton has already heard stories about Dellavedova. "We lost George, which was my vet, so I'll have to talk to Dellavedova and he'll be able to lead me how George led me". The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month.

Dekker, who starred at Wisconsin before becoming the No. 18 overall pick in 2015, has been out for more than a month with an ankle injury.

"How he played in our first finals; game three against Steph Curry", he said.

"This trade allows us to continue to work to improve our team and gives us a young, developing player in Sam whose versatility and athleticism at the forward position will allow him to earn an opportunity to contribute", Wizards president Ernie Grunfeld said in a statement.
