No other details are available, but Wojnarowski says the Clippers are clearing a roster spot and Cleveland gives Dekker a chance for more playing time.
Dekker spent his first two season with the Rockets before being traded to the Clippers before last season as part of the deal that sent Chris Paul to Houston. Dekker averaged 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds while playing 12.1 minutes per game over 73 contests in 2017-18.
