Bucks / Cavs Trade

The Bucks are sending Delly, Henson and a future 1st + 2nd round pick to the Cavs in exchange for George Hill, according to Woj.

As a Bucks fan, I have mixed emotions about this. I like getting rid of Henson and his contract, but giving up two picks stings a little.

Also, as many on this forum know I love Delly. He played great in the playoffs for the Bucks last year and, in limited opportunities, has played pretty well this year. I truly believe his leadership, intensity and playmaking will be missed.

Thoughts?

Also, according to Woj, Dekker is heading home to Wisconsin to play for the Bucks. This makes it a little easier to swallow as a big time Wisconsin Sports fan.

Bucks just got themselves some cap room. Should be an interesting summer in Milwaukee.

Welp, my excitement didn't

Welp, my excitement didn't last long. Apparently Dekker is instead heading to Washington, with Jason Smith and a future second going back to the Bucks, per Woj.

Ugh.

The Bucks did great in this

The Bucks did great in this trade IMO. G Hill has been in the playoffs 10/11 years in the NBA. He’s an experienced vet who can play both on and off of the ball, and is still a solid defender. He’s the ultimate team/locker room guy too. He def has his flaws (passive offensively), but you can trust him at both ends.

The bigger reason I like this move for the Bucks is they open up plenty of money for this summer, which they’ll need to re-sign key players. I haven’t looked, but I know they save close to $20 million by trading Delly & Henson. G Hill’s contract is also only guaranteed for $1 million if cut before July I think, so all in all . . . This opens up damn near $37-$40 million for the Bucks.

Nice move by the Bucks, the first rounder they give up has good protection on and with Hill's expiring deal and only $1 million guaranteed for next season they will have cap space or a nice trading chip.

Delly and Henson give the Cavs two good role players who will have trade value next year on expiring deals so they have got a bit younger and added future picks.

Hill played for Coach Bud

Hill played for Coach Bud when he was an assistant for the Spurs before they traded him for Kawhi. Story goes Pop was in tears when he made the call to Hill. Just what the doctor ordered for the Bucks, they needed this type of veteran leadership because they really struggle on the road.

The Bucks have up a first but

The Bucks have up a first but it projects in the 20s and it's down the track. They got the best player in the deal and saved 18+ mil. Pretty good!

Actually, there's been quite a lot of positives over recent times. They have got the stones to try things at least, rather than standing pat and being satisfied just to make the playoffs as many small market teams are. Coach was a great hire. Lopez has fit in well, but they also took chances with Maker, Bledsoe, even Brogdon who wasn't popular with teams as he was older when he came out and no one was sure if he could be an NBA guard, but these are working. Sterling Brown was a good late pick, verdicts out on Donte but at least he's contributing as a rookie. Pat Connaughton is contributing. Most importantly, taking that unknown skinny Greek kid mid first round and developing him seems to have worked out ok!

Kudos to the front office, they have made some good decisions from what I can see.

+1 for the way you spelled

+1 for the way you spelled that out. Really good explanation of the deal.

Yeah I commend the Bucks also for always trying to compete and making big risk draft picks to obtain high upside players. This team also always tries to get the best team together they can every year to make a playoff push, when have they ever tanked. Kinda like Utah of the East.

The front office has changed drastically recently but it seems the vision hasnt.
