Bucks deal for Cavs' Hill

Bucks deal for Cavs' Hill

The Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards have agreed on a three-team trade that will send guard George Hill to Milwaukee, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Washington Wizards jumped into the deal, too, and acquired Dekker in exchange for Wizards big man Jason Smith and a future second-round pick, per Wojnarowski. The Bucks are also sending John Henson to the Cavaliers in the deal, as well as a first-round and second-round pick in 2021. Hill is making $19 million this year, but has just $1 million guaranteed in 2019-20.

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.

Matthew Dellavedova is headed home.

However, the teams have not yet confirmed this trade.

'very strong signals' that China is ready for a trade deal
Few details have been made public about what the two sides will negotiate, a lack of clarity that has unsettled stock markets . But the spokesman did not provide more specific details about what actions China would take.


The Cavs remain active in trade talks and according to Fedor, are "willing to take on extra salary" for more draft picks. Smith has averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in almost 11 minutes per game this season in Washington.

Hill, who was acquired by the Cavaliers from Sacremento at the trade deadline last season, is now averaging 10.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.

Dellavedova spent the first three seasons of his National Basketball Association career in Cleveland, posting averages of 5.7 points, 3.4 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game.

Henson, 27, hasn't played in a month, recently had wrist surgery and is expected to miss several months. Dellavedova, 28, has been limited to 12 games this season due to an ankle injury and is averaging a career-low 1.7 points.
