INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indiana Pacers and point guard George Hill have agreed to a new deal.
Hill's co-agent, Michael Whitaker, wrote in a text message Tuesday that Hill, a 26-year-old restricted free agent, will sign once the NBA's moratorium period ends on July 11. He did not disclose terms.
Hill joined the Pacers after a draft-day deal in 2011 that sent Indiana draft pick Kawhi Leonard to San Antonio, and he averaged 9.6 points and 2.9 assists per game last season. He began the season as a productive player off the bench, then became the starter after Darren Collison was hurt and kept the job through the Pacers' playoff run.
The Pacers are still trying to reach a deal with free agent center Roy Hibbert.
