Milwaukee trades Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson, a first-round pick and a second-round pick to Cleveland.

Two reports indicated National Basketball Association forward Sam Dekker was being traded from the Cleveland Cavaliers to the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Washington Wizards joined the trade as a third team and acquired Dekker from the Bucks for Jason Smith.

As a result of the swap, the Wizards lowered their tax payment from $14.49 million to $9.79 million, according to ESPN.

The original trade including Cleveland forward Sam Dekker, but he has been rerouted to Washington. In 215 career games (31 starts) with the Cavs, he averaged 5.7 points and 3.4 assists in 21.0 minutes per game. The 12-year veteran only played in 33 games.

As the Wizards sought options with Dwight Howard (back surgery) sidelined, Smith and Mahinmi lost their spot in the rotation to Thomas Bryant, an athletic 21-year-old capable of running the court and battling inside. Head coach Scott Brooks is also using power forward Markieff Morris frequently in the "5" role.

Henson (6-11, 219), who is in his eighth National Basketball Association season, has spent his entire career with Milwaukee, appearing in 405 games (152 starts) and averaging 7.8 points on.539 shooting, 5.4 rebounds and 1.48 blocks in 20.1 minutes per game.

Dellavedova could play in the Cavaliers' Saturday night home game against the Washington Wizards, and will quickly renew acquaintances with his former teammates on the Bucks. Henson is averaging 5.6 points and 5.1 rebounds, but he has not played since November 14.
