According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the San Antonio Spurs and free agent point guard George Hill have broken off contract talks.
Sources: George Hill, Spurs discussions broke off. Denver and New York have so far made initial contact with Hill, one of top PGs on market.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) July 1, 2017
Hill is one of the top point guards on the market this off-season, and there was supposed to be mutual interest between him and the Spurs in a reunion. Hill spent his first three professional seasons in San Antonio.
Word of the contract discussions ending between Hill and the Spurs came shortly after the report of San Antonio re-signing Patty Mills to a 4-year, $50 million contract.
Hill, 30, spent last season with the Utah Jazz, where he averaged 16.9 points and 4.2 assists on 48% shooting from the floor.
