Deal done: Matthew Dellavedova headed back to Cleveland via trade

For the Bucks adding George Hill rounds out a deep guard trio with Malcolm Brogdon and Eric Bledsoe

Salary cap analysis: George Hill acquisition gives Bucks...

Matthew Dellavedova has returned to the Cavaliers, who look nothing like they did when he left.

The Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards have agreed on a three-team trade that will send guard George Hill to Milwaukee, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Cleveland will receive the 2022 second-rounder while Washington will receive a 2021 pick.

Hill helped the Cavs reach the Finals last season, but the team wanted to unload his big contract while giving rookie Collin Sexton more playing time. Hill is averaging 10.8 points per game, three assists and two rebounds per game this season on 51 percent shooting.

"Everybody said he's a real good guy, a real good locker-room guy", he said. Furthermore, they acquire a steady point guard in Hill, who has started for deep playoff teams in the Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs over the course of his 11-year National Basketball Association career.

The Christian Democratic Union (CDU) chose the former chief minister of Saarland on Friday to replace Mrs Merkel as party leader. Both have prominent backers, though many CDU grandees - including the chancellor - have held off publicly endorsing a candidate.

Following Hill's injuries, Sexton was given the starting point guard role, and has excelled ever since, averaging 17.9 points per game as a starter on 46 percent shooting. "They say he practices hard, too, so we're going to have some battles". "George provides us added depth and experience at the guard position, while Jason gives us another frontcourt player who can stretch the floor".

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to repackage players in other trades before February's trade deadline.

The money Milwaukee will save with the trade allows them flexibility to continue to upgrade the roster, while the Cavaliers continue show a willingness to take on money to gather draft picks.

The second benefit of this deal for Cleveland is the return of a fan favorite. The Cavs have been very aggressive in looking to move out veterans for future picks, now having acquired four future selections in the past 10 days, including a trade that sent Kyle Korver to Utah. The Australian had been buried on Milwaukee's bench and is averaging just 1.7 points and 2.4 assists in 12 games. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month.
