George Hill is not yet a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. But had he been traded by the Sacramento Kings to the Cavs, his stint with the defending champions may not even last long. Speaking on ESPN Radio about the subject of Hill’s potential trade to Cleveland, Ryan Hollins said that Cleveland was trying to coax Hill into agreeing to a preliminary buyout next season should LeBron James decides to walk away from the team in the summer. Hill, however, declined to be part of the plan, putting the trade talks off the table for now. It has been an open secret for a long time now that the Cavs covet George Hill, though it makes little sense to a lot of people. Adding another point guard would further crowd the position’s depth chart in Cleveland. The Cavs currently have Isaiah Thomas, Derrick Rose, Jose Calderon, and even James as those who could run the point for Cleveland. Even if Cleveland ships a guard to Sacramento in exchange for Hill, that would not address the Cavaliers biggest weakness, which is defense. In fact, Hill might only add more to the problem.
