Cavs Receive Matthew Dellavedova From Bucks in Multi-Player Trade

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.

The first-round pick in 2021 is protected, the person said.

Another popular Cavaliers player is coming "home". Hill returned from injury on December 1 against the Raptors. He will get more playing time in Cleveland. Dekker has also been sidelined with a severely sprained left ankle. The acquisition of Dellavedova is icing on the cake, considering he was a major fan favorite who helped lead the franchise to their lone National Basketball Association title in 2016.

Australian guard Dellavedova was a 2015-16 champion with the Cavaliers after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2013, and returns to the squad after two full seasons with the Bucks. It also gives Cleveland future assets that they can use during the rebuild.

CBS separately hired lawyers to investigate former chief executive Les Moonves and sexual misconduct allegations against him. He also deleted numerous text messages and was " evasive and untruthful at times " under questioning, the report says.

The Cavs moved veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz late last month in exchange for two second-round picks. The 24-year-old has played only nine games. The center underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist late last month. He's now averaging 10.8 points, 2.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game this season. He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season. With the Cavs rebuilding and playing rookie Collin Sexton a lot, there was no point to have Hill on the roster.

The Bucks are getting a 46-percent shooter from 3-point range in Hill, who fits into their new long-range shooting philosophy under first-year coach Mike Budenholzer, plus a backup to starter Eric Bledsoe.

Budenholzer declined comment before Milwaukee's game against Golden State.
