But a week is a long time in the National Basketball Association and money talks, the deal set to save the Bucks nearly US$18 million in salary in 2019-20 - cash they can throw at a bumper free agent class that could include the likes of Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard, Kyrie Irving and Klay Thompson.

The Cavaliers have re-acquired Matthew Dellavedova and big man John Henson from the Bucks, along with a future first- and second-round draft pick in exchange for veteran point guard George Hill.

For the Cavaliers, the main attraction is not only to bring back a member of their championship squad, but the multiple future picks headed to Cleveland as a part of the deal.

Martin Dubravka reveals what was ‘unexpected’ about Newcastle’s defeat to West Ham
West Ham are level with The Magpies on 12 points so Saturday's meeting between the two teams is a very tough one to call. West Ham made four changes as Cresswell, Noble, Snodgrass and Hernandez replaced Masuaku, Obiang, Diangana and Antonio.

George Hill and Wisconsin native Sam Dekker were supposed to head to Milwaukee. Dellavedova spent the first three years of his National Basketball Association career with the Cavs and was a fan favorite because of his style of play. "George provides us added depth and experience at the guard position, while Jason gives us another frontcourt player who can stretch the floor". He is averaging 6.3 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

The Bucks are getting a 46-percent shooter from 3-point range in Hill, who fits into their new long-range shooting philosophy under first-year coach Mike Budenholzer, plus a backup to starter Eric Bledsoe.

The deal came together Friday in time for teams to be able to repackage players in other trades before February's trade deadline. "We wish Jason the best moving forward and appreciate the value he brought to our team as a great teammate and true professional". Dellavedova, 28, has been limited to 12 games this season due to an ankle injury and is averaging a career-low 1.7 points.

However, the teams have not yet confirmed this trade.

Henson's departure also opens up more game time for Maker who started the season on the bench but has been playing more in recent weeks.
