NBA Role: versatile point guard • Hybrid 

It’s no coincidence a lot of coaches, players & fans view George Hill as one of the more versatile, yet slightly underrated point guards in the Association; wily, veteran PG wired to win: G. Hill is steady in every area; good finisher on the break, gets above the rim in transition, go-to dunk: ‘one handed fly-thru’; extremely smart, sequence defender – like a cornerback on a full house blitz, G. Hill uses his long arms to disrupt passing lanes, turning defense into offense; quick going to the hole – Hill stays under control, can score from in between – savvy creator, splices through for quick floaters – but if the lane is clogged, he’ll make the extra pass; offensive consistency isn’t a given (has plenty of ‘meh’ stretches over the course of 82 games), though a maximum effort on D is second nature*

*G. Hill’s a great addition because Utah is the rare young squad w/ an already established defensive framework • Hill didn’t need to waste time convincing the younger guys to lock up, making his transition smoother as a result
