The Bucks turned in a great season but have tons of questions moving forward
October 13, 2019, 9:49 pmGeorge HillPG, Milwaukee Bucks
George Hill got the start on Sunday and was relatively quiet with five points, five rebounds and three steals.
With Eric Bledsoe out for the next two to three weeks, Hill should be able to produce late-round value for the first few games of the regular season. If he gets off to a hot start, it is possible Hill could build himself a larger role, but with the talent on this roster that will be a difficult task for the veteran. Hill often finds himself deferring to his teammates, and does not make for a long-term quality fantasy asset in standard leagues.

Eric Bledsoe has suffered a fractured rib and will miss two to three weeks according to Shams Charania of the Athletic.
Bledose was already ruled out of tonight's preseason game due to rib soreness, and it appears further tests were able to get to the bottom of what was causing him that pain. This setback has the potential to keep Bledsoe sidelined to start the regular season, but hopefully for no longer than a couple of games. He's still an intriguing target in the 4th round of drafts. George Hill will likely start while Bledsoe is sidelined.

George Hill has been ruled out of the Bucks' game against the Bulls on Monday.
Kyle Korver will be held out as well. The Bucks are getting a look at their young talent instead of rushing the veterans into action. Hill should only have value in deeper leagues.

The Bucks have officially re-signed George Hill.
Milwaukee waived Hill to get out of an onerous salary but re-upped him for three years and $29 million. He'll be looking at some extra minutes with the departure of Malcolm Brogdon and will look to keep his momentum from a strong playoff run. There probably won't be enough here for 12-team leagues, but Hill is on the board in deeper formats as a nice fit in the Bucks' system.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, George Hill will be returning to the Bucks this season after both parties agree on a three-year, $29 million deal.
This is a solid payday for the 10-year vet. It makes sense that the Bucks locked him down, now that Malcolm Brogdon is headed to the Pacers. Hill should remain a fantasy late-round plodder who battles bouts of inconsistency from week to week.

The Knicks have shown interest in George Hill and Wayne Ellington, per Ian Begley of SNY.
The Knicks are chasing the biggest names on the market but would like to flesh out the roster with affordable veterans either way. Hill will be waived by the Bucks rather than be paid $19 million, but Milwaukee has hopes to re-sign him on a more affordable deal. He'll be in demand as a lengthy veteran who can hit threes and defend, and the Knicks figure to have more to offer Hill in terms of salary. Ellington will be sought after as one of the free agent class's top 3-point shooters, and he figures to prioritize playing time, picking a fledgling Pistons team with limited guard depth last season after falling out of the rotation in Miami.

The Bucks will waive George Hill but would like to re-sign him as a free agent, per Shams Charania.
ESPN reported that this would happen earlier today, and with Hill having only $1 million of his $19 million guaranteed, it was hard not to see this coming. Hill should be a popular option on the open market, however, so the Bucks might not be able to outbid other teams unless they make a surprise move to open up cap space.

The Bucks will waive George Hill, who only has $1 million of his $19 million salary guaranteed for next season, but would be interested in having him return on a new deal.
Hill would be more of a priority if Malcolm Brogdon left on a big offer sheet, but he was a nice fit in Milwaukee regardless. The playoffs saw Hill return to form after a few down seasons, and if he does stick around while Brogdon departs then he'll be a late-round consideration in fantasy leagues.

George Hill put up 24 points on 7-of-9 shooting in 37 minutes of action in a 118-112 Game 3 loss to the Raptors in double overtime on Sunday.
Hill has been fantastic off the bench for the Bucks all postseason, and he continued that trend in Game 3 as he carried the scoring load. The bench has been great for the Bucks, but the Raptors were still able to overpower them and bring the series within one game. The rest of the team must shoot the ball better for the Bucks to pull out the series win, but Hill has definitely shown up.

George Hill continued to play well in Wednesday's Game 5 win, scoring 16 points off the bench to go with three rebounds and three 3-pointers.
Hill played this series like it was 2012, finishing with an average of 14.2 points on a scotching 57.9 percent from the field. It will be interesting to see if he can keep this going heading into the Eastern Conference Finals, especially with Malcolm Brogdon back in the fold.

Head Coach Mike Budenholzer told the media that George Hill's minutes will not be reduced as Malcolm Brogdon returns from injury on Wednesday vs. the Celtics.
Hill has played very well in this series off the bench for the Bucks. It is safe to say that Hill's minutes will be safe as Brogdon gets back into form. Perhaps the return of Brogdon will affect fellow guard Pat Connaughton's playing time.

George Hill was steady again in 27 minutes on Monday night vs. the Celtics as he put up 15 points (6-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, five assists, one three and zero turnovers.
Hill has provided some valuable veteran bench minutes in this series. He's also helped fill the Malcolm Brogdon void better than many expected. The Bucks' depth is looking solid as is, and a Brogdon return might not be far off.

George Hill looked as spry as he has in years, scoring 21 points with two treys (and a massive dunk) in Friday's Game 3 road win over the Celtics.
Hill added four rebounds and three assists in his 29 minutes. He played a key part of the Bucks' third quarter run that earned them the lead for good. Hill and Pat Connaghtonn (14 points and four 3s) have filled in admirably for Malcolm Brogdon (plantar fascia tear), who is inching his way to a return.

George Hill scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting and added three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a trey on Sunday night.
Due to the blowout nature of the game, George Hill went slightly over his season average of 20.4 minutes per game and did his damage in 23 tonight. The Bucks bench has been a strength all year and tonight was no different. His benchmate Pat Connaughton contributed 10 points on 4-of-6 shooting and eight rebounds.
