G - OKC
The Bucks traded George Hill, Eric Bledsoe and three first-round draft picks to the Pelicans for Jrue Holiday.
Hill will give the Pelicans a veteran presence and provide point guard depth. He averaged 9.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 triples across 21.5 minutes over 59 games for the Bucks last season. Hill will backup Lonzo Ball, but doesn't hold much fantasy value with the switch to New Orleans.
George Hill collected eight points, four assists and one rebound in 36 minutes of work in a losing effort on Monday.
Hill was thrust into a starting role at the eleventh hour as Eric Bledsoe (hamstring) was scratched. Hill didn't do a whole lot to avenge Bledsoe's absence as the entire Milwaukee squad struggled. Hill had half as many turnovers (4) as points (8) across 36 minutes which effectively neutralized any DFS value his performance garnered. If Hill was a late value play in most lineups, he most likely let you down. If Bledsoe is inactive again for game two, it may be best to not take the bait and stay away from Hill against the competent Miami defense.
George Hill provided 11 points (2-3 FG, 7-8 FT), three assists and two rebounds in 23 minutes during Saturday's 118-104 Game 5 win against the Magic.
Hill was probable entering Game 5 due to a left finger sprain. He managed to shake off the injury to drop 11 points across 23 minutes. It was the second game all series Hill scored in double figures. Hill is the backup PG to Eric Bledsoe, and provides solid defense and three-point shooting. The Bucks will take on the Heat in the second round of the NBA playoffs.
George Hill captured nine points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists, two rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes of work on Monday.
Despite his slot on the bench, Hill provided a healthy amount of stability for Milwaukee in a 121-106 game 4 victory on Monday. His six assists were second only to Antetokounmpo and he sported a team leading +30 for his plus/minus. Still, Hill remains a less than premium option at the point guard position in most daily fantasy formats. However, if owners were inclined to splurge at other positions, Hill's active hands and court vision could prove to be an asset at his minimal asking price.
George Hill bagged 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five assists, two rebounds and one steal against a staunch Magic defensive unit on Tuesday.
Hill was a spark plug for Milwaukee all afternoon as he was the team's second leading scorer (16) only behind the reigning MVP. The guard shot the ball efficiently, facilitated and got to the line in a valiant performance off the bench. Hill wasn't on anyone's radar coming into the series, but with a fading support group around Antetokounmpo, Hill could see more minutes to fill a scoring role. He sits quietly at $4,200 (Fanduel) for game two on Thursday. He could be a deep dive option allowing owners to splurge at other positions.
