The Washington Wizards, and not the Milwaukee Bucks, are going to acquire small forward Sam Dekker from the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Initially, Sam Dekker was headed to the Bucks, but the Wizards joined in on the trade between the Cavs and Milwaukee. Washington big man Jason Smith will head to the Bucks. The Cavs are sending a 2021 second-round pick for a 2022 second-round pick, per ESPN’s Brian Windhorst.

Cleveland traded for Sam Dekker from the Los Angeles Clippers before the season started. His short stint with the Cavs is over. He played in nine games this season and averaged 6.3 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 assists per contest.

The Wizards are saving money by trading Jason Smith. Washington’s tax bill will drop from $14.49 million to $9.79 million per ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Smith averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds for the Wizards this season in 12 games.
