Wojnarowski added the ways in which the deal will be beneficial for both teams involved: the Clippers will free up a roster spot while the Cavs provide an opportunity for Dekker to contribute in an increased role.
Sides are still working through parameters, but it's essentially Clippers clearing a roster spot and a chance for Dekker to get a better opportunity for minutes with Cavs. https://t.co/aIYRLW2rAo- Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 5, 2018
Dekker, who spent his first two NBA seasons with the Houston Rockets, was traded to L.A. last summer in the deal that sent nine-time All-Star Chris Paul to Houston. In his lone season with the Clippers, Dekker appeared in 73 games, averaging 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds while playing 12.1 minutes per contest.
