George Hill could use a change of scenery from the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2022 NBA offseason

When the Milwaukee Bucks signed George Hill last offseason, it seemed like a great move for the Cream City after the turbulence they endured at the position the year prior. Given his familiarity in Milwaukee with several of the key players and Mike Budenholzer’s coaching staff, many believed that Hill could bring much-needed stability to the backup point guard position. Unfortunately, he never quite found his footing during his second stint with the Bucks, as his 2021-22 season was a flat-out disaster.

Hill averaged a measly 6.2 points per game this season, the lowest since his rookie year during the 2008-09 season. This was largely due to his inability to shoot the long ball, as the veteran sunk an abysmal 30.6 percent of his 3-pointers this season, a career-low. As bad as he was in the regular season, Hill was even worse in the postseason as he totaled six rebounds, five points, and three assists in 76 total minutes. Production like that simply will not get the job done, and the Bucks should look to move the veteran elsewhere this offseason.

Teams will not be banging down the door to acquire Hill this offseason, but with a $4 million salary for next season, he is an easily tradeable piece. Hill’s days of being a consistent contributor on a contender may be over, as he was virtually unplayable for the Bucks this season. A youthful team looking for a veteran presence in the locker room could be the perfect place for him at this stage in his career. Although the Bucks seem fond of Hill, they have to understand that he is not what they envisioned he could be when they signed him and that a change of scenery is the best possible thing for him.
