Coach Dave Joerger told reporters he is "pretty confident" that George Hill (groin) will play Wednesday vs. the Rockets.
Hill has been able to practice fully this week, which is a positive sign. However, we'll still have to wait until after shootaround on Wednesday for confirmation on his status for the season opener. Oct 17 - 6:09 PM

George Hill (groin) practiced on Monday and is hoping he'll be cleared for Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets.

Hill getting through a full practice is certainly encouraging regarding his status for Wednesday night, and we should have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is cleared to play, that would likely translate to De'Aaron Fox coming off the bench in his NBA debut. Stay tuned.
Oct 16 - 5:43 PM

George Hill (groin) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) were limited during Sunday's practice.

Hill has had a lot of trouble staying on the court throughout his career, so it's not great that he'll be coming into the 2017-18 season at less than 100 percent. Head coach David Joerger said he hopes to have both these guys available for the regular season opener against the Rockets on Wednesday, but if Hill isn't able to give it a go, De'Aaron Fox could get off to a quick start as Sacramento's starting point guard.
Oct 15 - 4:09 PM

George Hill (groin), De'Aaron Fox (back) and Bogdan Bogdanovic (ankle) have all been ruled out for Friday against the Warriors.

Hill had no chance to play after what looked like a minor groin injury on Thursday. The problem here with Hill is that he's had a litany of groin injuries since 2012, so even just a scare here should move him down draft boards a bit.
Oct 13 - 4:21 PM

George Hill (right groin) will not return on Thursday.

It looked like it was minor with Hill not getting much medical attention after the injury in the first quarter. He slipped on the floor and limped to the bench under his own power. Hill has dealt with a slew of groin injuries in his career, including a right groin strain in April of last year. Hopefully, this is a precaution, but you may want to downgrade Hill a round or two with this news. Frank Mason III has played well and could play more if Hill can't recover.

George Hill, Vince Carter, Kosta Koufos, Zach Randolph, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Garrett Temple will rest on Monday vs. Portland.

In addition to these guys, De'Aaron Fox is out with a lower back contusion and Harry Giles (back) is out. The Kings are going to rest their veterans quite a bit this season which is why the ADP for Hill and Z-Bo is so low.
Oct 9 - 8:13 PM

George Hill, Vince Carter, Kosta Koufos, Zach Randolph and Garrett Temple will rest on Friday night.

We'll get a longer look at the young Kings tonight. De'Aaron Fox looked great in the preseason opener while we should see what the wings have going for them on offense. Hill's upside is slightly capped as the Kings look to rebuild.
Oct 6 - 6:20 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 1:25 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 9:49 AM

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.
Jul 1 - 4:15 PM

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.

Jul 1 - 10:09 AM

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.
