CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - It was quite the reunion for old teammates when the Cleveland Cavaliers met up with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Cavs went down in a loss, 108-98, but the real story were all the familiar faces in opposing colors.

George Hill made a home in Cleveland the past two seasons.

Hill was a veteran who led by example, with playoff experience a lot of guys just don’t have.

That type of guidance was helpful for younger guards like Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman.

That was then, this is now

It was different seeing the Indiana native without the city on his chest but it’s how things will be from here on out.

The Cavs traded Hill last week to the Bucks and Cleveland’s prodigal son, Matthew Dellavedova returned.

It was a hectic day for Delly who didn’t know where his new destination was after his call dropped.

Yes really

The full trade details are below:

Hill played 13 minutes and finished with 2 points for his first game as a Buck.

Delly played 16 minutes and finished with 11 points.

This was him making it rain in warm-ups.

Delly received a warm reception from the crowd, here’s what he had to say following the game.

Despite the distance Hill still has a lot of love for the city.

Just last month he invited dozens of students to a free screening of ‘The Hate U Give.'
