Twitter reacts to Matthew Dellavedova-George Hill trade

Henson (6-11, 219), who is in his eighth National Basketball Association season, has spent his entire career with Milwaukee, appearing in 405 games (152 starts) and averaging 7.8 points on.539 shooting, 5.4 rebounds and 1.48 blocks in 20.1 minutes per game.

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. Also, they'll have cap space to sign Khris Middleton when he likely hits free agency in 2019. Hill returned from injury on December 1 against the Raptors.

The undersized point guard averaged 5.7 points and 3.4 assists per game during his three seasons in Cleveland, including an epic 2015 Finals performance that saw him score 20 points in Game 3 while leading the Cavaliers to victory. He appeared in 12 games this season with Milwaukee and owns career averages of 5.8 points and 3.7 assists in 21.4 minutes over 341 games (88 starts) with the Cavaliers and Bucks. Dellavedova will wear jersey number 18 for the Cavs.

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. The Cavs have been very aggressive in looking to move out veterans for future picks, now having acquired four future selections in the past 10 days, including a trade that sent Kyle Korver to Utah.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to repackage players in other trades before February's trade deadline.

Aussie Matthew Dellavedova is coming home. sort of. He's good at throwing lobs to me, so I'm really happy about that.

Sexton, the No. 8 overall pick in the June draft, has already heard stories about Dellavedova. "They say he practices hard, too, so we're going to have some battles".

The money Milwaukee will save with the trade allows them flexibility to continue to upgrade the roster, while the Cavaliers continue show a willingness to take on money to gather draft picks.
