RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

After cycling through three different point guards (Raul Neto, Trey Burke and Shelvin Mack) to varying degrees of success last season, the Jazz wasted little time in the offseason in adding stability to the position, acquiring Hill from the Pacers prior to the 2016 NBA Draft while surrendering the 12th overall pick. The 30-year-oldís tight perimeter defense and ability to knock down three-point shots makes him an ideal fit in Utah, but in the fantasy realm, heíll likely remain overshadowed by many of the other starting point guards around the league. Over 74 appearances for the Pacers last season, Hill averaged 12.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.1 steals in 34.1 minutes per game last season, numbers that while useful, donít exactly make him an exciting commodity. Hill at least helps his cause by delivering strong percentages across the board, but look for his playing time to take a slight dip in 2016-17 with Dante Exum, the No. 5 overall pick in 2014, set to return this season after missing all of 2014-15 with a torn ACL. Exum is viewed as the Jazzís long-term option at point guard, but due to his lack of NBA experience along with the teamís desire to contend this season, Hill was brought in to take some of the pressure off the 21-year-old from Australia. Hill is thus expected to stick in the starting five all season, but heíll likely head elsewhere next summer when he becomes a free agent, as Exum should be ready to take the starting point guard title by that time.

2015-16

The 29-year-old Hill returns to Indiana for his fifth year in Indiana and his eighth year in the Association. The veteran point guard looks to shake last year's injury bug. Knee, quad, and groin issues forced Hill to miss 39 games last year. But he returned late in the season to produce career highs of 16.1 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.2 rebounds per game. For 2015-16, expect Hill to return closer to his career averages of 11.2 points, 3.2 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game as new arrival Monta Ellis will certainly eat into Hill's scoring opportunities. Still, Indiana has many defense-first players in their rotation, leaving opportunities for Hill to continue to shine. And if Indiana does pick up the pace, as many expect, there will be more shots for everyone. Hill makes for a reliable second point guard for most fantasy squads, especially if he continues to drain 1.6 three-pointers per game, as he did last year.

2014-15

Hill took a step back in 2013-14, as his scoring average dipped from 14.7 points to 10.3, and his assist average fell from 4.7 assists to 3.5. Even though Hill lines up as the point guard in nearly every offensive set for the Pacers, his former teammate Lance Stephenson ended up leading the team in assists last season, averaging 4.2 helpers per game. With the Pacers losing Stephenson to free agency, as well as losing leading scorer Paul George to injury this offseason, Hill is primed for an increase in production. Hill views himself as more of a shooting guard than a point guard, but he'll once again be responsible for getting the ball up the court and setting up David West and Roy Hibbert, both of whom expect to be main cogs in the team's offense in 2014-15. He represents a sneaky fantasy value this season and could see a big increase in possessions this season, but owners will need to bolster their assist production through other means if they want to stay competitive in that category with Hill on their team.

2013-14

Last season was George Hill's first as the Pacers' full-time point guard, and he rose to the challenge, posting career-bests in scoring (14.2 ppg), assists (4.7), rebounds (3.7) and steals (1.1) in a career-high 35 minutes per game, while also stepping up to give the team some perimeter scoring to replace Danny Granger's contributions. Though he's firmly established now as Frank Vogel's "coach on the floor," he may have a difficult time replicating those numbers in 2013-14, mostly because the Pacers will have a lot more scoring options Ė including the returning Granger and underrated backup point guard C.J. Watson. Another thing to consider Ė though Hill's listed position is point guard, his statistics are more what you'd get from a two. Look elsewhere for big assist numbers.

2012-13

Hill struggled early on as the Pacersí third guard, and it wasnít until March that he started to get comfortable with his new team. Soon after, Darren Collison went down with an injury and Hill became the starting point guard and never relinquished the job. The Pacers had better chemistry with him in charge. The organization was happy enough to hand him a five-year, $40 million contract, and ship Collison to Dallas. As a point guard, Hillís been a better scorer than playmaker, so make sure your fantasy roster has another capable assist man. On the other hand, this will be the first time in Hillís career heís been handed a full-time starting job as a point guard.

2011-12

A draft-night trade to Indiana should mean a big boost to Hillís fantasy value this season. Instead of backing up Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili in San Antonio, heíll most likely be sharing the backcourt with Darren Collison, solidifying the Pacersí starting shooting guard spot thatís been in flux for years. Hill has been very effective as a fill-in to this point, averaging 14.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 0.8 steals per game in 55 career starts. Thereís no reason to believe his game wonít translate as he takes on a bigger role on a full-time basis. Itís not clear how the Pacers will use him, but itís not hard to envision Hill as a Manu Ginobili-lite; a player that can look to score when needed or initiate the offense from the two spot at times.

2010-11

The selection of Hill Ė an unheralded guard out of obscure Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI to friends) on draft night 2008 had fans and pundits alike diving for their notes. But as we've learned over the years, "Never question a Spur draft pick." Since that night, Hill has developed into a major contributor in coach Gregg Popovic's rotation, displacing Roger Mason last season and possibly eating into Tony Parker's playing time this year. Hill lacks Parker's quickness Ė most humans do Ė but he has a respectable outside shot (just under 40 percent from three) that gives San Antonio's offense another long-range threat when he's on the floor. Even if he doesn't seriously cut into Parker's minutes this season, he could have fantasy value as a bench player, especially if Manu Ginobili gets hurt.

2009-10

Hill is the primary backup to Parker at point guard, but he'll also see some time off the ball when Ginobili assumes the point duties. The numbers weren't impressive last season (5.7 points, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals), but he demonstrated enough as a rookie that he should be in line for a boost in playing time in his second year. As long as Parker is healthy, however, his fantasy value will be negligible.

2008-09

Hill was somewhat of a surprise pick for the Spurs in the first round of I.U.P.U.I., but the Spurs like his versatility and his ability to score. Hill is expected to play both guard positions for the Spurs. Hill struggled with his shot in the summer league, so it may take Hill awhile to get adjusted to life in the NBA.
