Bucks Acquire Jason Smith From Wizards As Part Of Three-Way Trade

Bucks Acquire Jason Smith From Wizards As Part Of Three-Way Trade

It was reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (and ESPN's Brian Windhorst) that the Cavs traded George Hill to the Milwaukee Bucks for Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson and a future first and second-round draft pick. The Wizards joined as a third team in the trade, acquiring Sam Dekker from the Cavaliers, while Jason Smith and a second-round draft pick will be traded to the Bucks.

Cleveland re-acquired the popular guard in a three-team trade with the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards.

However, with his perimeter touch turned wonky (4 of 32 on 3-pointers, 12.5%), Mahinmi healthy and Mike Scott making 3-pointers, Smith largely fell out of the rotation last season.

The first-round pick that Milwaukee sent to the Cavs has lottery protections and might not convey until as late as 2024 because the Bucks owe a future first-rounder to the Phoenix Suns that might not convey until 2021.

Dellavedova, 28, averaged 1.7 points, 0.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 12 games for the Bucks this season.

Henson, 27, hasn't played in a month, recently had wrist surgery and is expected to miss several months.

Dekker, 24, averaged 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.2 steals in nine games (five starts) for the Cavaliers this season. The Cavaliers and Wizards also swapped second-round picks.

"Everybody said he's a real good guy, a real good locker-room guy", he said.

Milwaukee gets two benefits from the trade: 2019-20 savings and a talent upgrade. He's played for the Cavs, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets.

"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. Henson is averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds, but he has not played since November 14. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional". Dekker, out since suffering an ankle injury on November 5, was expected to be available Saturday when the Cavaliers hosted the Wizards.
