The Columbus Dispatch - - Front Page -

The Cleve­land Cava­liers ac­quired Matthew Dellave­dova on Fri­day in a trade with the Mil­wau­kee Bucks, who also parted with for­ward John Hen­son and two draft picks in 2021 for guard Ge­orge Hill and for­ward Sam Dekker. The Bucks sent Dekker to the Wash­ing­ton Wizards for for­ward Ja­son Smith.

The Cavs are re­ceiv­ing Mil­wau­kee’s 2021 first- and sec­ond-round picks as well as a 2022 sec­on­dround pick from the Wizards.

Hill re­cently re­turned af­ter miss­ing 11 games with a shoul­der in­jury, and the Cavs have been shop­ping him around for a deal. Dekker has also been side­lined with a se­verely sprained left an­kle.

Dellave­dova’s scrap­pi­ness en­deared him to Cleve­land fans dur­ing his three sea­sons with the Cavs, who didn’t re-sign the player known as “Delly” af­ter win­ning the 2016 ti­tle.

Cleve­land re­cently traded sharp­shooter Kyle Korver to Utah for two picks in 2020 and 2021. The Cavs are tar­get­ing 2020 to land a big-name free agent, and should have plenty of salary-cap space to add one.

The 28-year-old Dellave­dova will get a chance re-start his ca­reer with the Cavs. The Aus­tralian had been buried on Mil­wau­kee’s bench and is av­er­ag­ing just 1.7 points and 2.4 as­sists in 12 games.

Hen­son re­cently un­der­went surgery to re­pair a torn lig­a­ment in his left wrist. He’s av­er­ag­ing 5.6 points and 5.1 re­bounds in 14 games.
