Cavaliers re-acquire Dellavedova
Matthew Dellavedova has returned to the Cavaliers, who look nothing like they did when he left.
Cleveland acquired the scrappy guard 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 second-round pick from the Wizards.
Dellavedova helped the Cavs win an NBA title in 2016 and is a huge fan favorite. His return will soften what has been a difficult season for the Cavs, who are just 5-20 and rebuilding in the wake of LeBron James’ departure last summer.
