Free agent guard George Hill has agreed to a three-year, $29M deal to return to Milwaukee, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium.- Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 30, 2019
The move comes after the Bucks waived Hill on the eve of free agency, with only $1 million of his $18 million salary for guaranteed for 2019-20.
Hill will likely have a larger role on the Bucks this season after Malcolm Brogdon agreed to a four-year, $85 million deal in a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers.
After averaging 6.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 47 regular-season games for Milwaukee, the 33-year-old lifted his production to 11.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in the postseason.
Players can negotiate agreements with teams on June 30 but contracts can't be officially signed until the new league year begins on July 6.
