George Hill Biography
George Hill born George Jesse Hill Jr., is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was born on May 4, 1986 and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Hill attended Broad Ripple High School. As a senior at Broad Ripple High School he led the state of Indiana in scoring with 36.2 ppg, the sixth highest mark in state history.
He chose to attend IUPUI despite receiving scholarship offers from several big conference schools including Temple and Indiana. In his sophomore year, he led the IUPUI Jaguars to a tie for the best record in the conference. Following an injury that forced him to become a red-shirt in his third year at IUPUI, Hill returned the next season and led the Jaguars to a school-record 26 wins and the Summit League Tournament finals before losing to eventual champion Oral Roberts University and thus failing to secure a spot in the NCAA tournament.
Hill declared himself eligible for the 2008 NBA draft. Hill worked out with several NBA teams. After an impressive run at the Orlando pre-draft rookie camp, Hill attracted attention and became a projected second-round selection. On draft night, the San Antonio Spurs surprised many by selecting George Hill with their 26th pick in the first round; many had San Antonio selecting Mario Chalmers of Kansas. Hill became the second first-round draft choice in The Summit League’s history and the first player ever drafted from IUPUI. On September 23, 2008, the Spurs signed Hill to a standard rookie contract that guaranteed the first two years, and included a team option on the next two years.
Hill was traded to the Indiana Pacers during the 2011 NBA Draft on June 23, 2011, a trade which sent 15th overall pick Kawhi Leonard to the Spurs in exchange for Hill. On July 13, 2012, Hill re-signed with the Pacers to a reported five-year, $40 million contract. On July 7, 2016, Hill was traded to the Utah Jazz in a three-team deal involving the Pacers and the Atlanta Hawks. On July 10, 2017, Hill signed with the Sacramento Kings.

The 32-year-old Hill, who played for the Jaguars from 2004 to ’08, received his degree from the School of Liberal Arts. He was one of two student speakers to address the new graduates.
Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Hill would rejoin the team in time for the series opener Sunday against the Celtics.
Hill joined the Cavs in February, coming over in a trade from Sacramento. He was slowed by back spasms and missed three games in the first round of the playoffs against Indiana, but he returned and played a key role in Cleveland’s four-game sweep of Toronto.
Hill, who also has played in the postseason for San Antonio and Indiana during his career, has helped settle a troubling position for the Cavs. Cleveland traded All-Star guard Kyrie Irving last summer to Boston and has used numerous point guards this season.
The Cavs struggled without him against the Pacers, but Hill returned for the series finale. Although he was on a minutes restriction, he scored 11 points — all in the second half — and helped Cleveland advance.
“He’s been great,” Lue said. “Just coming into Game 7 versus Indiana, where he hadn’t played in three-plus games, to come out and play the half of basketball that he played, he was tremendous. So, just his experience of being in the playoffs, being in the Eastern Conference finals when he played for Indiana, playing against the Miami teams, he knows what it’s about.
“It’s great having a veteran like that on the team.”
