The Cavaliers are getting a 2021 first-round pick from Milwaukee and a 2022 second-round pick from Washington.

Cavs fans must be thrilled to have Matthew Dellavedova back in Cleveland.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Mattew Dellavedova is being traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday.

The Cavaliers have re-acquired Matthew Dellavedova and big man John Henson from the Bucks, along with a future first- and second-round draft pick in exchange for veteran point guard George Hill.

The Washington Wizards entered the mix as the third team in the deal, acquiring Sam Dekker for Jason Smith and a future second-round pick. 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.

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. The Cavaliers and Wizards also swapped second-round picks. The Australian had been buried on Milwaukee's bench and is averaging just 1.7 points and 2.4 assists in 12 games.

According to Wojnarowski, Milwaukee will save $18 million in salary in the 2019-20 season with the trade.
