Cavs acquire Henson, Dellavedova from Bucks
CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers traded point guard George Hill and forward Sam Dekker to the Milwaukee Bucks in return for former Cavs point guard Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson and future protected first- and second-round picks, ESPN reported shortly before the Cavs tipped off against the Sacramento Kings Friday night.
A fan favorite during his first stint in Cleveland, Dellavedova left the team after the 2016 season in a sign-andtrade deal that netted the Australian a four-year, $38.5 million contract with the Bucks. The Cavs at the time did not want to match the deal.
Dellavedova averaged 6 points and 4.2 assists per game in a little over two seasons with the Bucks. His career averages are 5.8 points and 3.7 assists.
Henson began his NBA career as a power forward, but has played center the past five seasons. The 6-foot-11, 219-pound University of North Carolina product averaged 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in seven seasons with the Bucks.
Dekker, who played college basketball at Wisconsin and will be returning home, has spent approximately the last month rehabbing an injured ankle. He is averaging 5.3 points and three rebounds in his career.
