The Milwaukee Bucks have officially re-signed veteran point guard George Hill, the team announced.
“George is a consummate pro and an important part of our team,” Bucks general manager Jon Horst said in a statement. “His veteran leadership and steady guard play were instrumental to our success last season, both during the regular season and the playoffs. We are thrilled to have him back with the Bucks.”
Hill was acquired in a trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers early in the season and came on strong in the playoffs, when the Bucks advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals despite the absence of an injured Malcolm Brogdon. Since the end of the season, Brogdon was traded to the Indiana Pacers, making Hill’s presence even more valuable.
Hill, 33, averaged 11.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 15 playoff games.
According to Shams Charania of Stadium, Hill’s deal with the Bucks is for three years and $29 million.
