Bucks Acquire Jason Smith From Wizards As Part Of Three-Way Trade

Bucks Acquire Jason Smith From Wizards As Part Of Three-Way Trade

Cleveland re-acquired the popular guard in a three-team trade with the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards.

It's natural to focus on the players involved.

Sexton, the No. 8 overall pick in the June draft, has already heard stories about Dellavedova. Teams buying second-round picks at the draft typically pay around $1-1.5 million. The Wizards get a smaller expiring contract than the one they had.

Dekker was in his first season with the Cavs, who got him in an August trade with the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Cavaliers will receive guard Matthew Dellavedova, centre John Henson, a 2021 first-round pick (from the Bucks) and 2022 second round pick (from the Wizards), while forward Sam Dekker will head from the Cavaliers to the Wizards.

The Cavaliers play Washington in Cleveland on Sunday AEDT although it's unclear if Dellavedova will be cleared in time to play. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional".

The 56-year-old former prime minister of the state of Saarland was a party favourite and Ms Merkel's choice for succession. In 18 years of experience, she said she "learned that leadership is more about internal strength then external volume".

The 7-footer arrived in 2016 as part of a free agent class that paid scant dividends to date for the Wizards.

The Bucks signed Dellavedova to a $38-million, four-year deal after the Cavaliers won the championship in 2016 but this season they have actively looked to move him to free up salary cap room heading into the last year of his deal next season. Center Ian Mahinmi and forward Andrew Nicholson also joined the Wizards that offseason. The 24-year-old has played only nine games. In three seasons with Cleveland, the Aussie averaged 5.8 points, 3.7 assists and 0.5 steals in 21.0 minutes per game while shooting 39.5 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from three-point range. After two productive years in Milwaukee, he has fallen out of the rotation. Bryant's solid work in the starting lineup likely made trading Smith easier.

"When you're losing, it's not as fun, let me tell you".

Dellavedova is scoring 1.7 points and 2.4 assists. However, he's been struggling this season, primarily because of an ankle injury. Dekker is now dealing with a sprained ankle that has sidelined him for a month, but he was converting on 38.4 percent of his 3-point attempts before the injury. He rebounded to play 77 and 73 the following two seasons. The Australian had been buried on Milwaukee's bench and is averaging just 1.7 points and 2.4 assists in 12 games. Dekker's qualifying offer is $3.916 million. Korver was traded to the Jazz for Alec Burks and a second rounder.
