INDIANAPOLIS, IN -- The San Antonio Spurs signed first-round pick George Hill today.
The Spurs took Hill with the 26th selection, but didn't have to sign him. His agent, Michael Whitaker, said the former Indiana-Purdue-Indianapolis star participated in summer league with the Spurs and had been working out in San Antonio since August 18, despite the fact that he hadn't officially signed.
Now that Hill has signed, the first two years of the deal are
guaranteed. The rookie scale shows that Hill would make 1.22
million dollars his first year and 1.31 million dollars his second
year. The Spurs have team options the next two years.
Hill, a 6-foot-2 guard, averaged 21.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and
4.3 assists last season for the Jaguars.
