Bucks deal for Cavs' Hill

G. Hill

The Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards pulled off a multi-player trade on Friday night. But it appears to have been a bit premature.

Earlier tweets indicated Dekker was headed to Milwaukee in a trade with the Cavs.

While Smith's signing was the least noteworthy of the three, he certainly helped the most initially. In addition, Milwaukee will also receive forward Jason Smith from Washington.

Hill was traded to Cleveland from the Utah Jazz at last year's trade deadline.

Ironically, Smith spent part of Friday with NBC Sports Washington discussing how he remains positive despite a limited work. "But when we finally started to get on the same page, move the ball and the offense was clicking for us, when defensively we started getting stops, things changed", Smith said hours before the trade. Dellavedova was a member of the Cavaliers' 2016 championship team and averaged 7.5 points per game, 2.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists that season.

Mueller also detailed alleged lies told by Manafort during interviews with prosecutors and the Federal Bureau of Investigation . Trump says his campaign had nothing to do with them and he denounces Mueller's investigation as a "hoax" and a "witch hunt".

For a team that may be playing competitive basketball but not seeing the results in wins, one of the best ways to keep Cavs fans engaged is through actions like these by putting fan favorites on the court.

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. Dekker is now dealing with a sprained ankle that has sidelined him for a month, but he was converting on 38.4 percent of his 3-point attempts before the injury.

The 19-year-old will also be benefitted by being able to go against the Australian during practices, something that All-Star guard Kyrie Irving thrived on as a teammate of Dellavedova's. He rebounded to play 77 and 73 the following two seasons.

Sexton is fourth among rookies this season in scoring (per Basketball Reference), and although he's only averaging 2.5 assists per game, Hill should get some credit for Sexton gradually improving in his willingness to get other players involved and his passing vision.

Dekker's presence provides a minor hedge should Washington not retain restricted free agent Kelly Oubre Jr. Dekker's qualifying offer is $3.916 million. The Cavs sent guard George Hill and a 2021 second-round selection to the Bucks, and forward Sam Dekker to the Wizards. It is 1-8 protected in 2024, per Lowe, and will convert to two second-rounder if it is not conveyed by 2025.
