MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Two reports from ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski had said the Cleveland Cavaliers were trading Sam Dekker in a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, now he's heading to Washington.

The Milwaukee Bucks had struck a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers to acquire Dekker in a multi-player trade before the Washington Wizards got involved in negotiations Friday night.

George Hill and Wisconsin native Sam Dekker were supposed to head to Milwaukee. Now instead of Dekker, Hill will join the Bucks along with Jason Smith and a future second-round pick from the Wizards.

Milwaukee sent guard Matthew Dellavedova, center John Henson, a future first-round draft pick and a 2021 second-round draft pick to Cleveland.

Washington sent forward Jason Smith, cash considerations and removes the protections placed on the 2020 second-round pick traded in the Jodie Meeks deal to Milwaukee, and a 2022 second-round draft pick to Cleveland.

Cleveland sends guard George Hill and a 2021 second-round draft pick to Milwaukee, and forward Sam Dekker to Washington.

"Carry on," Windhorst said in a tweet.


According to his bio page on the Cavaliers website, Dekker made his NBA debut in 2015. He’s played for the Cavs, Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets.
