The move will save the Bucks almost $20 million in salary next season, Wojnarowski added.

The Cavs sent guard George Hill and a 2021 second-round selection to the Bucks, and forward Sam Dekker to the Wizards. According to Zach Lowe, the first-rounder would convey if 15-30 in 2021, 11-30 in 2022, 11-24 in 2023, 9-30 in 2024 or become second-round picks. Also, they'll have cap space to sign Khris Middleton when he likely hits free agency in 2019.

Despite missing a chunk of the season, Hill is a player that will be useful for the Bucks on the court, where his career three-point shooting mark of over 38 percent will see him fit in well with both the Bucks reserves and starters.

"We're excited to welcome George and Jason to the Bucks organization", GM Jon Horst said.

Hill recently returned after missing 11 games with a shoulder injury, a setback that only delayed the Cavs in pulling off a deal to add more assets.

"Both George and Sam Dekker went about their work here with professionalism and class and we wish them the best". He is averaging 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. 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. Hill is averaging 10.8 points per game, three assists and two rebounds per game this season on 51 percent shooting.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to repackage players in other trades before February's trade deadline. The 32-year-old is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game in 26.5 minutes this season.

Sexton, the No. 8 overall pick in the June draft, has already heard stories about Dellavedova.

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.
