Even though the San Antonio Spurs re-signing backup point guard Patty Mills to a four-year, $50 million deal, they are still looking to add another point guard and have shown real interest in bringing back George Hill, according to ESPN's Michael C. Wright.
The Spurs might still address the point guard position. They've shown interest, according to sources, in bringing back Utah's George Hill, who spent the first three years of his career in San Antonio before leaving in the trade that brought Leonard into the fold. A Hill signing doesn't appear too imminent, however, as he has garnered interest from multiple teams that could push his value beyond what San Antonio is willing to pay.
Talks had reportedly broken down between the two sides, but San Antonio still appears to be interested.
There is a very real possibility that Tony Parker has played his last NBA game, and even if he returns next year, the Spurs are starting to look for a replacement.
Hill played the first three seasons of his career with San Antonio and was one of head coach Gregg Popovich's favorite players, but was dealt to the Indiana Pacers in the trade that allowed the Spurs to draft Kawhi Leonard.
There are plenty of suitors on the open market for Hill, and the New York Knicks have reportedly made him their top target. Hill was waiting to see what Utah Jazz teammate Gordon Hayward did in free agency before making a decision, but with Utah trading for Ricky Rubio, going back to the Jazz may not be an option for him.
Hill averaged 16.9 points, 4.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game this season.Back to the San Antonio Spurs Newsfeed
