George Hill (toe) returned from a lengthy absence in the Jazz’s 100-83 win over the Sixers on Thursday, scoring 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting (including two threes) with eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block in 29 minutes.
Here is the scenario we’ve been talking about for over a month now and maybe even since the beginning of the year. He has top 10-20 value on a per-game basis in his 12 games this year and here comes a highly leveraged line against a bad Sixers team experiencing injuries to Sergio Rodriguez and Gerald Henderson, with hobbled Nik Stauskas and T.J. McConnell matching up in the backcourt. The idea is to sell while the market perception is that he’s a top-30 guy.
We’re moving him for any top-40 player and well-situated top-60 futures are also in the discussion. This is where owners can make big profits and we’re telling you to make it happen. In the meantime, Gordon Hayward’s top-36 stock is about to dip by a round or two.
