The Pacers have re-signed 26-year old guard George Hill to a 5-year deal worth $40 million bucks. Hill played in 50 games (9 starts) for the Pacers last year and he averaged 25.5 minutes, 9.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game. He has now played in 281 games (64 starts) in his first four years in the NBA and he is averaging 24.8 minutes, 9.8 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Hill will likely bump Darren Collison to the bench and start at point guard starting in 2012-13. This was a smart move by the Pacers.
