An­other pop­u­lar Cava­liers player is com­ing “home.”

LeBron’s gone. Delly’s back.

Mil­wau­kee will trade Dekker to Wash­ing­ton for cen­ter Ja­son Smith and a se­cond-round pick. The first-rounder in 2021 is pro­tected, the per­son said. The deals are pend­ing league ap­proval.

Pac­ers: For­ward Do­man­tas Sabo­nis missed the game be­cause of food poi­son­ing. Guard Vic­tor Oladipo’s sore knee kept him out for the ninth straight game.

Nuggets: Will Bar­ton, Gary Har­ris, Michael Porter Jr. and Isa­iah Thomas did not play due to in­juries.

76ers: Cen­ter Joel Em­biid was given the night off Fri­day against Detroit, but just to rest. “Af­ter the last few games with Mem­phis and Toronto,” coach Brett Brown said, “it be­came clear through the eye test and just lis­ten­ing that the time was now.”
