The Friday trade that sent Cleveland Cavaliers point guard George Hill to the Milwaukee Bucks had a silver lining for the veteran's now former teammates Tristan Thompson and Channing Frye.

The Wizards acquired Sam Dekker from Cleveland via Milwaukee and swapped second-round draft picks with Cleveland, with the Cavs sending the Wizards' 2021 pick back to Washington for the Wizards' 2022 selection.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst, the Milwaukee Bucks are trading Dellavedova to the Cleveland Cavaliers for George Hill.

There was an urgency to get the deal agreed to before 6 p.m. on Friday because only players on rosters by then can be re-packaged in other trades before February's deadline.

Essentially a salary dump, the Bucks paid a price in terms of the picks they parted with to send to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Trade grades: What the Bucks-Cavs deal means ($) (read here): Also of ESPN, Kevin Pelton dived into the potential implications of last night's trade before ultimately handing his grade on the deal for the Bucks and the Cavs. In his 12 games thus far, he's only averaging 1.7 points and 2.4 assists. In addition, Milwaukee will also receive forward Jason Smith from Washington. "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". This season, he played in 14 games for the Bucks and averaged 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game. He's good at throwing lobs to me, so I'm really happy about that.

Not drafted, Dellavedova began his career with Cleveland in 2013 and played three seasons with the Cavaliers, including their NBA Championship season of 2015-16, before signing as a free agent with Milwaukee prior to the 2016-17 season.

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.

Henson recently underwent surgery to fix a torn ligament in his left wrist. The Cavaliers, meanwhile, continue to stockpile draft picks. Henson is averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds, but he has not played since November 14. Dekker's short stint in Cleveland ends after nine games, where he averaged 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists per contest.
