UPDATE: Sam Dekker is headed to Washington, not Milwaukee, after the Wizards jumped into the trade. 

More on the trade here. 


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.
