Matthew Dellavedova traded back to Cleveland Cavaliers

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. "We will continue to look for ways to improve and strengthen our position for the future, while enhancing our ability to compete and grow in the short-term also".

The Bucks acquired point guard George Hill from Cleveland and forward Jason Smith and a 2021 second-round pick from Washington.

The deal potentially could save the Bucks about $19 million next season if they don't keep Hill, who has only $1 million of a $19 million deal guaranteed.

Affectionately known to Cleveland fans as "Delly", Dellavedova was a key member of the Cavs' 2016 title team before he signed with the Bucks later that summer. 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.

They have also taken some calls on shooting guard Alec Burks, acquired last week in a trade with the Utah Jazz involving Kyle Korver.

There was an urgency to get the deal agreed to before 6 p.m. on Friday because only players on rosters by then can be re-packaged in other trades before February's deadline.

Matthew Dellavedova is going back to where it all began.

The 28-year-old has had a tough start to the season under new Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer, averaging the fewest minutes of his career (8.1) after he fell out of the team's rotation. He's good at throwing lobs to me, so I'm really happy about that. The Australian had been buried on Milwaukee's bench and is averaging just 1.7 points and 2.4 assists in 12 games.

Hill was highly expected to be traded from the Cavs after it was clear that the team was heading towards the direction of a rebuild. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional".
