Sources: Washington will join the Cavs-Bucks deal as a third team — and acquire Sam Dekker for Jason Smith and a future second-round pick.

The trade is still being finalized, but would send Dekker and George Hill to Milwaukee for Matthew Dellavedova, John Henson and the Bucks’ first and second round draft picks in 2012.
Washington will be Dekker’s fourth NBA stop.
He was drafted by the Houston Rockets and played for the Los Angeles Clippers and the Cavaliers before coming back to Wisconsin with the Bucks.
