The Philadelphia 76ers are planning on waiving point guard George Hill.
Hil was dealt to the 76ers from Oklahoma City this past season, averaging six points per game on 44.2 percent shooting from the field in just under 20 minutes per game across 16 games played in Philadelphia. He will likely attempt to sign with another contender to provide minutes off the bench.
George Hill likely to debut Monday for 76ers, per Doc Rivers
After being acquired from the Thunder at the trade deadline earlier last month, George Hill will likely make his debut at backup point guard for the 76ers.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are trading veteran PG George Hill to the Philadelphia 76ers for Tony Bradley, Terrance Ferguson, and two future second round picks.
The Sixers get a high quality backup point guard behind Ben Simmons. This also takes some of the pressure off Shake Milton and will allow him to focus more on scoring.
According to beat writer Joe Mussatto, Thunder point guard George Hill is still in a hard cast after thumb surgery and will remain out for another 1-2 weeks.
Hill hasn't played since January 24th due to a broken thumb and the fact that he's still in a hard cast doesn't bode well for his chances to return anytime soon. Theo Maledon and Ty Jerome will continue sharing point guard duties in his absence.
George Hill (thumb) underwent a procedure and will be sidelined for at least four weeks.
The veteran guard has missed the past four games with the thumb issue and will now be out for the next month. Rookie Theo Maledon has been starting in his place and has averaged 13 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists over the past four games. He makes an excellent pick up if available in season-long leagues.
