Dekker played for the Wisconsin Badgers, and the original report of the trade excited fans that he was returning to Wisconsin.
The Bucks reportedly traded away Matthew Dellavedova and backup center John Henson for Dekker and George Hill to the Cavilers.
The Wizards then joined the trade and acquired Dekker for Jason Smith and a future second-round pick.
