Backup point guard George Hill will be back with the Milwaukee Bucks after reportedly agreeing to a three-year, $29 million deal, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania

The move comes after the Bucks waived Hill on the eve of free agency, with only $1 million of his $18 million salary for guaranteed for 2019-20.

Hill will likely have a larger role on the Bucks this season after Malcolm Brogdon agreed to a four-year, $85 million deal in a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers.

After averaging 6.8 points and 2.6 rebounds in 47 regular-season games for Milwaukee, the 33-year-old lifted his production to 11.5 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in the post-season.

Players can negotiate agreements with teams on July 1st but contracts can't be officially signed until the new league year begins on July 7.
