2021 Fantasy Outlook
Hill is returning to the Hawks on a one-year contract after playing a consistent role at forward last season. In 21.3 minutes per game, he averaged 4.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists. However, if the Hawks stay healthier than they did in 2020-21, Hill's role will likely take a slight dip. Either way, he won't be relevant in fantasy, as he ranked just 350th in per-game production last season. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, $2.39 million contract with the Hawks in August of 2021. Traded to the Knicks in January of 2022. Waived by the Knicks in January of 2022.

Out For Season
January 19, 2022
Hill (hamstring) was waived by the Knicks on Wednesday.
ANALYSIS
Hill was a throw-in in last week's trade that also sent Cam Reddish to New York, but the former had already been ruled out for the season after undergoing surgery on his right hamstring in early December. Since Hill was set to hit free agency this offseason, the Knicks had no incentive in having him occupying a roster spot.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Not interested in buyout
FMiami Heat
February 13, 2020
Hill has not approached the Heat about a buyout, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill was dealt to the Heat from Memphis prior to the trade deadline, but has yet to make it on the court after three games. Still, he insists he wants to remain in Miami. Perhaps more importantly, coach Erik Spoelstra has indicated that Hill may be in the rotation plans going forward, terming him "the next guy in line."

2013
After appearing in just 12 games in 2017-18 while recovering from surgery on his hamstring, Hill made only 44 appearances last season with the Pelicans. Injuries were not the issue in 2018-19, however, as Hill was simply bounced from the rotation due to poor play. The biggest reason for Hill's struggles have been his inability to score from the outside. The swingman has taken a nosedive when it comes to three-point percentage, shooting 19.0 percent from the outside in 2017-18 and 31.7 percent last season. He ended up averaging just 4.3 points per game last year and shot just 38.2 percent from the field overall. After a pair of trades this offseason, Hill will play out the final year of his four-year, $48 million contract in Memphis, where he is not expected to play any sort of significant role. The Grizzlies have a solid core of young talent on the wing and in the frontcourt, including Josh Jackson, Bruno Caboclo, Dillon Brooks, to go along with guys like Kyle Anderson and Jae Crowder. All of them are expected to take precedence over Hill in 2019-20.
After playing in all but two regular season games in 2016-17, Hill was forced to miss the majority of last season with a hamstring injury. In fact, he only came back for the final 12 games of the regular season and saw limited playing time during that span. Entering this season, Hill should be fully healthy and will be looking to solidify his role in the rotation. E'Twaun Moore stepped up in his absence and enjoyed a productive season, which means Hill is far from a lock to get his starting position back. Whether he does eventually start or -- more likely -- continues to come off the bench, Hill has very limited upside, even when he plays significant minutes. Per-36 minutes over the last two seasons -- a 92-game sample -- Hill holds averages of just 8.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.1 steals per game. The Arizona product's impact is felt more in a reality than a Fantasy context, and he should only be considered draft-worthy in the deepest of leagues.
Hill spent his first three years with the Pacers before joining the Pelicans on a four-year, $48 million contract prior to the 2016-17 campaign. He ended up playing in 80 games, including 71 starts, while posting averages of 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 three-pointers across 29.7 minutes. The workload was the largest he's received in his career and while he did continue to improve from the three-point line with a 34.8 percent clip from deep, his overall production largely kept him off the radar in Fantasy leagues. Hill will likely be looking at a similar role heading into the 2017-18 season. He's currently the favorite to start at small forward, but with Jrue Holiday, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins still commanding the bulk of the offensive touches, Hill will be stuck in complimentary role. The addition of Rajon Rondo brings yet another mouth to feed, meaning Hill's usage could fall even more. Look for slight decrease in his numbers overall.
Hill started a surprising 78 games last year, his sophomore season in the Association. Unfortunately, much of his playing time was undeserved -- Indiana simply didn't have many other options with Paul George lost for most of the season. Hill's stats from last year show a player that had difficulty creating his own scoring opportunities. The small forward shot just under 40 percent from the field, scoring only 8.9 points over 29 minutes per game. Those minutes will decline as All-Star Paul George returns to the starting lineup, sending the 24-year-old Hill back to a reserve role. Frankly, it's a much better role for the defensive-oriented Arizona Wildcat. This year, expect Hill to hit the occasional three-pointer, come of the bench to slow down opposing team's best wings, and continue to work on his offensive shortcomings.
Hill didn't quite live up to the hype in his rookie campaign, but that was simply the fact of there not being enough room for him in the rotation. He averaged eight minutes per game last season and was sent for a brief stint in the D-League to receive extra playing time. The 23-year-old has received steady praise from team president Larry Bird and coach Frank Vogel, but those words might actually mean something this year. With Paul George's gruesome injury forcing him to miss the entirety of the coming season, a starting spot has opened up at Hill's position. He'll will have to fight off recent acquisition C.J. Miles to earn the job, but regardless of who wins the final starting spot, expect both players to see a minimum of 20-25 minutes per game. Those in dynasty formats that took a flier on Hill last season may begin to see their investment pay off.
Many critics saw Indiana's decision to select Hill in the first round as a stretch, but the rookie has done nothing but impress so far in Pacers camp. His impressive run started in the Orlando Summer League, where he shot 55 percent from behind the arc and posted 22 points in their victory over the Sixers. Head coach Frank Vogel believes that Hill is ready to contribute right away, so despite the Pacers making several key additions to their bench this season, all signs point to the 22-year-old finding his way into the rotation.
