George Hill has officially signed his three-year, $57 million deal with Sacramento.
With Hill in Sacramento, De'Aaron Fox will have to fight that much harder for his minutes, and it's looking like this situation could trend towards a value-killing timeshare situation. Hill's minutes could also be phased into the lower-20s towards the end of the year once the Kings are mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, so he's looking like more of a late-round pick in fantasy hoops.

George Hill has reached an agreement on a three-year, $57 million deal with the Sacramento Kings, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

This was an unexpected move by Sacramento, as the Kings drafted point guard De'Aaron Fox with the fifth overall pick in June. Hill, who was the best available point guard left on the open market, can serve as a mentor to Fox and can help ease the rookie's transition to the NBA. However, the fantasy value of both Hill and Fox take a significant hit now that they will have to split time in the same backcourt. Kings shooting guard Buddy Hield may also see his minutes reduced a bit with Hill in Sacramento.

There is reportedly "significant mutual interest" between unrestricted free agent George Hill and the Lakers.

Hill met with the Lakers on Monday and both sides have reportedly engaged in "serious talks" regarding a short-term deal with the Los Angeles franchise. Word is that Lakers' management believes that Hill and No. 2 overall pick Lonzo Ball could share the backcourt, but Hill's presence on the roster would very likely limit Ball's fantasy potential. As a side note, the Nuggets remain interested in signing Hill, but they'll need to clear some cap space before they can make an offer.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Lakers will meet with free agent PG George Hill on Monday.

It's a strange move for a franchise that just took Lonzo Ball with the second pick in the draft. It's hard to imagine Hill not starting if he was on the Lakers, so his arrival would be bad news for the Big Baller Brand. The Lakers are trying to preserve their cap space for the summer of 2018 when both LeBron James and Paul George become free agents, so it's worth noting that they will be discussing just a one-year deal with Hill's reps.

According to Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer, the Nuggets are pursuing free agent PG George Hill.

After agreeing to a three-year deal worth $90 million for Paul Millsap on Sunday night, the Nuggets would likely have to shed some contracts to make Hill a competitive offer. O'Connor adds that Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur are potential trade candidates, but it's worth noting that Wilson Chandler's name has been in the rumor mill as well. Hill would be a solid signing for the Nuggets and he would bolster Denver's playoff chances next season, but this wouldn't be good news for breakout candidate Jamal Murray.

The Knicks are unlikely to sign unrestricted free agent George Hill, a source told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

Berman as the voice of reason is a new look, but it's hard to disagree with the logic in this spot. New York probably doesn't have quite enough available money to offer Hill an enticing deal, so it's more likely than not that Hill will look elsewhere for his newest team. Per Berman, the Nuggets and Pacers are two teams vying for Hill's services.

Ian Begley of ESPN is reporting that George Hill is currently the Knicks "top target."

The Knicks need to land a starting point guard this offseason. However, New York has less than $15 million in cap room and Hill's annual salary was expected to be in the neighborhood of $18 to $20 million. It's possible the Knicks could trade Courtney Lee or Carmelo Anthony to clear up cap space. Hill and Kyle Lowry are the last remaining top-quality starting point guards available.

The Spurs reportedly "broke off" discussions with free agent PG George Hill, who has also been contacted by the Nuggets and Knicks.

Hill is one of the best available PGs this offseason, especially now that Ricky Rubio has been acquired by Utah and Chris Paul has been acquired by Houston. The Spurs have Dejounte Murray and Tony Parker under contract, and they quickly inked Patty Mills to a four-year, $50 million deal on Friday. Hill is almost certain to start wherever he lands, but his fantasy value will be determined by his surroundings.

ESPN's Ian Begley said the Knicks are looking for a veteran point guard to groom rookie Frank Ntilikina, and added that George Hill is a target.

The Jazz probably knew that Hill's demand would be too high, so they went ahead and traded for Ricky Rubio. Hill has already been heavily linked to the Spurs, so this could turn into a bidding war. New York would be an ideal landing spot for Hill to produce for his fantasy owners, but it's unclear if the interest is mutual.

According to Spurs reporter Jabari Young, San Antonio is expected to pursue free agent PG George Hill.

Hill was one of coach Gregg Popovich's favorite players before he was shipped off to Indiana in the deal for Kawhi Leonard, and Young adds that Hill has "long desired" to reunite with Pop. Hill still has a residence in San Antonio and works out at the team's practice facility often, so this seems like a credible report. The Spurs haven't made contact with Hill's camp yet, but they are expected to when free agency begins on July 1. The Spurs have also been linked to Chris Paul and surprisingly Derrick Rose, so point guard seems like a focus for the franchise with Tony Parker (quad) out until at least January and Patty Mills hitting the open market.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said he is confident that Utah will be able to re-sign George Hill.

"There’s a very good chance, we’re each other’s best option come July," Lindsey said of Hill. However, Lindsey did acknowledge that if Hill got an exorbitant offer, Utah might not be able to match it. "I told him if he gets a crazy offer somewhere else and we helped him get that offer, 'you’re not going to get one poor thought, much less a word (from us)’ if he were to go," Lindsey said. "He helped us." Three of Utah's most important players, Hill, Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles, are all set to hit free agency in July.

George Hill said that he's hoping to re-sign with the Jazz this summer.

"I really enjoyed playing with the guys here. I think we created a heck of a bond" Hill said. "Let’s stay together, build on what we’ve done this year. Hopefully we can do that." A report in early March by Tim MacMahon of ESPN indicated that Hill's camp is seeking a four-year deal worth $132 million, so a return to Utah is going to be difficult with Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles also hitting free agency. Hill recently turned 31 and missed a total of 36 games if you include the playoffs, so handing out that type of money will be a massive gamble.

George Hill said that he will not need offseason surgery to repair his injured toe.

Hill stated that team doctors advised him to sit out longer when he first sustained the injury earlier in the season, but that he wanted to play. Hill missed a total of 36 games this season, including the playoffs. Sixteen of those were due to the toe. He said he was not worried that the injury-plagued 2016-17 season would make him less attractive in free agency because the toe issue was a "freak accident." Where Hill signs this summer will obviously have a significant impact on his fantasy value going forward.

George Hill (toe) won't play in Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune.

Coach Quin Snyder recently talked about how Hill wouldn't be effective if he was less than 100 percent in this series, so the writing was on the wall. With Hill out for the third straight game, Shelvin Mack will likely draw another start and will try to help the Jazz avoid a sweep on their home court. In his last two starts, Mack averaged 12.5 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 2.0 triples.
May 8 - 7:50 PM

Jazz coach Quin Snyder said it made sense to hold George Hill out for Games 2 and 3 because his toe injury "greatly impacts" his "effectiveness on the floor."

"It's really just more a question of his effectiveness and his toe," Snyder said. "He's missed games for this over the course of the season. And what happens is as he's playing, there are situations in the game that happen where he lands on it and pushes off and it just aggravates it. It aggravates it to a point where he's just not able to be effective." Hill is currently considered questionable for Game 4 on Monday, though Snyder was non-commital when asked about his status. If he's out again, expect Shelvin Mack to benefit the most with Dante Exum and Raul Neto fighting for scraps off the bench.
