Its a 2 year contract worth 9.5ish million per. I think you are wrong.
Only thing that makes it a fail is an injury. But that can happen to anyone.

George Hill is five years younger than Joe Johnson, has played six fewer NBA seasons and has played about 24,000 fewer NBA minutes (20,000 vs. 44,000).

Hill should be able to replicate the same level of production he had last year, if his minutes are not increased to fill the void created by trading away Brogdon.

My biggest concern with Hill was his huge decline in 3FGA% last season. The Bucks need him to shoot well from the arc.

You always know how good a guy is by his next job. Based on this, Rod Thorn is really bad.

Wiz finally dump Grunfeld and then hire Thorn. Perfect.

Been calling him Ron Thorn this whole time. The things you learn, huh.

Due dilligence in case we make a trade, favour to an agent, maybe some distrust in Bender/Sterling/DJ etc..

So let's bring back Beasley. He's not a bad guy to have around to play ~20 games when one of our main scorers is benched. And he seems like the kind of guy who can help other players chill out.

I didn't get a chance to watch, anything noteworthy in tonight's town hall?

I wonder if there's any utility to working guys out just so they can see how great our facilities are and spread the word. Beyond the utility of just like let's see what Trevor Booker's got left, which is a worthy reason by itself.

I don't think even the Lakers are dumb enough to give him that.

I like it. Also think there’s a benefit in throwing a bone to agents with other clients we actually would be interested in.

Been a fan of Booker ever since he slapped the **** out of Roy Hibbert.

Horst and Bud should offer melo a camp spot we needed someone that could go out and get a bucket last year in the playoffs when things got tight and the paint got crowded. It’s a shame that man got excommunicated i wonder who he pissed off

Return to Milwaukee Bucks
