Hill was drafted in the first round of the 2008 by the Spurs, playing three seasons in San Antonio before bouncing around the league. This included a stint in Cleveland, which gave him a chance to play in the NBA Finals, eventually losing in four games to the Warriors.
As stated above, Hill spent two-plus seasons with the Bucks from 2018 until being traded to the Thunder in 2020. He has since been traded to and waived by the 76ers. Now, he will re-join the NBA Champions in their pursuit of a repeat.
