Article Summary:

Veteran guard George Hill had yet to play a single minute for the Philadelphia 76ers heading into Monday’s game. Ever since the Sixers traded with the Oklahoma City Thunder to land Hill, the 34-year-old has been ramping up his conditioning as his thumb heals from a surgical procedure, which he underwent months ago.

From the outside looking in, it seems Hill has contributed nothing to the 76ers at this point. “You know, we have guys like Tobias, guys like Danny Green, who’s won a championship, Dwight Howard, who has also won a championship. Recently, we added George Hill, who’s a savvy guard that has really helped me out as of late, especially in certain little mini-games playing against him. It’s been really great.”

When the Sixers traded for Hill in March, the idea was to get a reliable backup ball-handler who is battle-tested in the playoffs.
