Cleveland Cavaliers Aquire Sam Dekker from Los Angeles Clippers
The Cleveland Cavaliers will start the week off by acquiring forward Sam Dekker from the Los Angeles Clippers.
While no other details are available, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN says that the Clippers are aiming to clear a roster spot, while moving Dekker to the Cavaliers would give the former Wisconsin star more playing time. It is believed that the Clippers would receive future considerations or cash in the minor trade.
Dekker is a three-year NBA veteran who was drafted just out of the lottery back in 2015 by the Houston Rockets with their 18th pick. Dekker averaged 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 12.1-minutes per game across 73 contests last season.
The 6’9” stretch four shot nearly 50% from the field last season, albeit seeing a large dip in his three-point percentage.
