Report: Bucks to waive guard George Hill
The Milwaukee Bucks are, at least for now, parting ways with guard George Hill.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Bucks have waived Hill, and he will become a free agent. They are interested in retaining the guard, but he is expected to be hotly pursued by multiple teams.
Milwaukee guard George Hill will be waived and become a free agent, league sources tell @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium. Hill had a terrific finish to the season and will be a sought-after combo guard on the market. Bucks are working to find space to re-sign Hill, too.

Hill played a valuable reserve role for Milwaukee last year. He really came into his own during the playoffs, where he averaged 11.5 points per game off the bench while shooting 41.7 percent from three-point range.
The Bucks are facing some salary cap issues that could also cost them some other key players. They’ll try to retain Hill, but multiple teams are going to be pursuing him.
