Milwaukee Bucks will have interest in bringing back George Hill once they waive him

Bucks, George Hill

Milwaukee Bucks guard George Hill will likely be waived, as just $1 million of his $19 million contract is guaranteed. Despite that fact, there is still a chance that the team could bring him back into the fold, according to a report from ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne and Brian Windhorst.

Meanwhile, the Bucks have not totally closed the door on George Hill, sources said. With just $1 million of his $19 million contract guaranteed, Hill will be waived by the Bucks. But the two sides have an interest in working something out to have Hill return. He could be an option if Brogdon gets an offer elsewhere that the Bucks don’t match.

Hill, now 33 years of age, was traded to the Bucks as part of a five-player, three-team deal on December 7, 2018. The former 26th overall pick has been a solid option for the team, which is likely why they might be interested in bringing him back.

In his 47 appearances off the bench for Milwaukee this past season, Hill racked up averages of 6.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting from the field (28.0 percent from beyond the arc), 2.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and just under one steal (0.9) in 20.4 minutes per outing.

The Bucks finished the 2018-19 regular season with an impressive 60-22 overall record, which earned the team a No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Ultimately, though, Milwaukee was defeated by the Toronto Raptors in the conference finals, 4-2.
