Former University of Wisconsin star Sam Dekker is returning to the Badger State, this time as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. 

The Bucks recently finalized a deal that would ship backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova and backup center John Henson for Dekker and George Hill.

The Bucks are also sending a 2021 first and second-round pick to the Cavs. 

Dellavedova is also returning to a place he once called home as he played for the Cavs from 2013-2016 and even won an NBA championship in 2016. 

The Bucks will save $18 million in salary for next season by making the trade.
