3rd team enters Bucks’ trade with Cavs, sending Sam Dekker to Wizards

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

Another popular Cavaliers player is coming "home".

The Bucks have traded guard Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson and two draft picks to the Cavaliers for veteran guard George Hill, according to ESPN.

Smith ends up with the Bucks in the trade, which sent George Hill to Milwaukee and Matthew Dellavedova back to Cleveland along with John Henson and future draft picks. The Cavs sent guard George Hill and a 2021 second-round selection to the Bucks, and forward Sam Dekker to the Wizards.

The deals are pending league approval and could be finalized Friday night, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the teams have not yet had the mandatory conference call with National Basketball Association officials. Cleveland will receive the 2022 second-rounder while Washington will receive a 2021 pick. Hill returned from injury on December 1 against the Raptors. His return will soften what has been a hard season for the Cavs, who are just 5-20 and rebuilding in the wake of LeBron James' departure last summer. But the Cavs are thinking about the future and by moving Hill and Dekker, they've picked up more assets.

Dellavedova may not be Sexton's tutor, but as a sparring partner, his intensity will only make the 19-year-old Sexton better.

Crude Oil Price Forecast - crude oil markets fall hard again on Thursday
US President Donald Trump has repeatedly pushed Saudi Arabia and OPEC to boost oil production in order to drive down crude prices. He tells reporters the nations are "after a stable market and also a fair price for the producers as well as the consumers".

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.

Henson recently underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist. He averaged 3.7 points in 12 games this season.

The Cavaliers are among the worst teams in the league this season following LeBron James' move to the LA Lakers and the loss or trade of several other veteran stars, so Dellavedova's return would be a boost for fans who enjoyed his hustle and tireless work after rising from an un-drafted free agent in 2013 to making their roster.

The Bucks are getting a 46-percent shooter from 3-point range in Hill, who fits into their new long-range shooting philosophy under first-year coach Mike Budenholzer, plus a backup to starter Eric Bledsoe.

In the trade, the Cavs created a trade exception of almost $2.8 million that can be used up to a year from a day of the deal with Milwaukee.
