Point guard Hill headed back to Bucks on two-year deal

George Hill is remaining with the Bucks.

The Milwaukee Bucks are bringing back backup point guard George Hill on a two-year, $29 million contract, according to Shams Charania of Stadium.

Hill, 33, acquired from the Cleveland Cavaliers as part of a three-team trade Dec. 7, averaged 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 47 games off the bench for the Bucks, shooting 42.8 percent from the field, 28.0 percent from the 3-point arc and 81.5 percent from the free-throw line.

Earlier on Sunday, Milwaukee — which posted an NBA regular-season best 60 victories last season — also re-signed forward Khris Middleton and center Brook Lopez to multi-year contracts.

Milwaukee also traded point guard Malcolm Brogdon to the Indiana Pacers in exchange for a pair of future second-round draft picks.
