76ers Acquire George Hill in Three-Team Trade With Thunder and Knicks
George Hill is a quality veteran point guard. He has the potential to play meaningful minutes for the Philadelphia 76ers, who just acquired him at the NBA Trade Deadline.
He was excellent for the Milwaukee Bucks during the past two postseasons, averaging 10.7 points per game while shooting 51.4% from the field and 39.5% from 3-point range. He’s missed most of this season after undergoing thumb surgery, but he should be ready to return to the court soon.
In exchange for Hill, the Oklahoma City Thunder will acquire Tony Bradley and two second-rounders from the 76ers. Philadelphia will also receive Ignas Brazdeikis from the Knicks, while New York will get back Terrance Ferguson.
The 76ers currently occupy the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings, but the Brooklyn Nets are still the favorites to advance during the postseason. Brooklyn is currently listed at +110 to win the Eastern Conference on FanDuel Sportsbook, while Philadelphia is listed at +500.
The Bucks are sandwiched in the middle at +270, setting up a potentially exciting postseason.
