The Milwaukee Bucks have acquired guard George Hill and forward Jason Smith, a 2021 second-round draft pick and cash considerations as part of a three-team trade that includes Cleveland and Washington. The Bucks are also sending John Henson to the Cavaliers in the deal, as well as a first-round and second-round pick in 2021.

The Milwaukee Bucks finalized a deal Friday to add two veterans and clear their books in the short-term future in a five-player trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards.

Hill was traded to Cleveland from the Utah Jazz at last year's trade deadline.

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

The deal also has implications for Thon Maker, who looks set to establish himself as Milwaukee's backup big man moving forward, with Henson now in Cleveland, although he will have to compete with Smith for those minutes.

In 12 appearances this season, Dellavedova is averaging 1.7 points, 0.8 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. "Brings us veteran leadership, a guy that's won before, a guy that's going to push Collin [Sexton], control the game for the second unit and he'll make shots". He is averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists per game this season. He's good at throwing lobs to me, so I'm really happy about that. While Washington continued its penchant for dealing away second-round picks - it now has none thru 2022 - general consensus indicates doing so for that amount of savings is a draft pick well spent in this case.

As a member of the Cavaliers for three seasons from 2013 to 2016, Dellavedova developed a strong bond with his teammates because of his hustle and team-first approach to the game.

Hill's contract figure of US$18 million for the 2019-20 season is only partially guaranteed for US$1 million, meaning the Bucks can save themselves in the vicinity of US$19 million ($26.3 million AUD) next season if Hill is waived. He's played for the Cavs, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets.

"This trade allows us to continue to work to improve our team and gives us a young, developing player in Sam whose versatility and athleticism at the forward position will allow him to earn an opportunity to contribute", said Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld in a statement released by the team.

Henson's departure also opens up more game time for Maker who started the season on the bench but has been playing more in recent weeks. He carries career averages of 7.8 points and 5.4 rebounds.
