There was no surprise whatsoever that the Cavaliers traded Hill; he is a veteran that can help a stabilize a second unit point guard role on a contending team with his low-usage style, and spot-up prowess.
ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Bucks are sending a package of Dellavedova, John Henson and first (protected) and second round draft picks in 2021 to the Cavs in exchange for George Hill and Sam Dekker - pending league approval.
The Cavaliers also received forward John Henson and 2021 first- and second-round picks from Milwaukee, and a 2022 second-rounder from Washington.
Windhorst, and ESPN's Zach Lowe cleared up the future draft pick discussion shortly thereafter.
Milwaukee gets two benefits from the trade: 2019-20 savings and a talent upgrade. Dekker, who is a Wisconsin native and former Badgers standout, has averaged 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds for Cleveland this year, appearing in nine games.
Milwaukee now has the second-best record in the Eastern Conference, trailing the Toronto Raptors by 3.5 games, and managed to save around $18 million in cap space for next season by moving two hefty contracts in the deal.
"Everybody said he's a real good guy, a real good locker-room guy", he said.
His contract could also be used in another trade before the February deadline. "They say he practices hard, too, so we're going to have some battles".
Henson has played all seven years of his career as a forward and centre with the Bucks, averaging 5.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.8 blocks per game in 13.4 minutes in 2018-19.
Dekker, who starred at Wisconsin before becoming the No. 18 overall pick in 2015, has been out for more than a month with an ankle injury.
Sexton is fourth among rookies this season in scoring (per Basketball Reference), and although he's only averaging 2.5 assists per game, Hill should get some credit for Sexton gradually improving in his willingness to get other players involved and his passing vision. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional".
