NBA Free Agency 2017: Kings sign George Hill to a three year, $57 million deal

Guess the Kings found their vet PG after all.

Not 20 minutes after I wrote about the Kings running out of veteran options at PG, the Kings went out and signed the best one. Shams Charania is reporting that the Kings have signed George Hill to a three year, $57 million deal. The third year is only partially guaranteed according to David Aldridge.

In Hill, the Kings have acquired a really quality veteran point guard who can play defense, pass and shoot the three. He’ll be the starter from day one, and will be a good player for both De’Aaron Fox and Frank Mason III to learn from. Last season he helped transform the Jazz into a quality playoff team, averaging a career-high 16.9 points on 47.7% from the field and 40.3% from three.

Hill does have some injury concerns as he only managed to play 49 games last season and 43 in 2014-15. But if healthy he will provide great leadership and a steady hand at the wheel for the Kings. Hill’s contract is also friendly enough that should Fox come along quicker than anticipated, it will be easily tradeable.

As an added bonus, we now get to hear Jerry Reynolds say that George Hill went to IUPUI every game this season. Win-Win.
