The Cavs approached George Hill prior to acquiring him about the idea of a buyout should LeBron James leave in free agency, according to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic.
This does confirm a report from back in January when ESPN's Brian Windhorst said Hill didn't want a buyout, which also happened before the Cavs actually made the deal in February. According to the this new report from The Athletic, "Hill was not interested in discussing a buyout at the time, particularly since this is likely his last big payday." Just to clear all this up, we still don't know if the Cavs have talked about a buyout since they knew LeBron was headed to Los Angeles. Obviously, the Cavs are rebuilding and Hill likely isn't part of the team's long-term plans at age 32. This is good news for Collin Sexton's fantasy value. Jul 4 - 3:18 PM

Tristan Thompson will enter the starting lineup for Game 7 on Sunday.

Even though George Hill (back) is returning, he'll come off the bench and may have restrictions after sitting out three straight games. Jose Calderon will move to the bench with the Cavaliers going big, meaning LeBron James will run the point.
Apr 29 - 1:07 PM

Jose Calderon made another fill-in start on Wednesday with six points, two boards, two steals and a pair of 3-pointers in 20 minutes.

George Hill (back spasms) is day-to-day and his absence has thrust Calderon into the starting role, albeit with limited usage alongside usage-monster LeBron James. Jordan Clarkson could benefit with Hill out of commission but he only had four points, one board and one assist in 15 minutes tonight, and it's hard to trust any Cavalier beyond LeBron for DFS value.
Apr 25 - 10:29 PM

Jose Calderon made a fill-in start for George Hill (back spasms) during Game 3, posting five points, two rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.

The Cavs siphon most of the ball-handling duties through LeBron James anyway, of course, with LBJ recording 32 of the Cavs' 62 total assists in their first-round series. Throw in Calderon's typical minute-limit (27+ minutes just three times all season) and he's only a DFS punt while Hill is sidelined.
Apr 22 - 11:41 PM

Larry Nance, LeBron James and Jeff Green all played just 11 minutes during Wednesday's season finale, while George Hill played nine minutes.

"We're still playing to win but we want to be smart because since I've been here, we always preach health over positioning," coach Ty Lue said before the game. Nance finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he should return to a bench role when the Cavs open the postseason vs. the Pacers.
Apr 11 - 11:09 PM

Cedi Osman will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Knicks.

Joining him in the starting five will be George Hill, LeBron James, Jeff Green and Larry Nance Jr. This game could turn into a blowout real quick, and head coach Tyronn Lue already suggested he'll be monitoring LBJ's minutes, so Osman could see some heavy run tonight.
Apr 11 - 7:57 PM

Jose Calderon started Sunday's game in place of George Hill (ankle), scoring eight points with two 3-pointers, two assists and one rebound.

Calderon logged 22 minutes and that's typical for his role even when Cleveland is short-handed. He's a reliable complementary player who doesn't demand usage, and the move also allowed Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith to stay together as sparkplugs for the second unit. There's no reason to touch Calderon even if Hill misses more time.
Apr 1 - 9:20 PM

Jose Calderon will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, with George Hill (ankle) unavailable.

Calderon will be joined by Rodney Hood, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Larry Nance, but Calderon getting the start doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Through 30 games as a starter this year, Calderon owns averages of 5.9 points, 2.7 assists and 1.1 triples per contest.
Apr 1 - 4:43 PM

Rodney Hood will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Hood will be replacing Jose Calderon in the starting five, and he'll be joined by George Hill, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Tristan Thompson. Hood's been hot over the past two, and his odds of keeping that going improve as a starter, so he could be worth a look for anyone seeking some points and triples.
Mar 28 - 5:36 PM

Jose Calderon started for Kyle Korver (personal) on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with four 3-pointers, four assists and one rebound in 27 minutes.

Korver is away from the Cavs indefinitely following the death of his brother, and Cleveland opted to shift George Hill to SG while keeping their second-unit rotation intact. We've already seen what Calderon looks like as a starter at age 36, and it's not inspiring -- in 26 previous starts, he averaged 5.6 points, 1.1 threes, 2.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 0.7 steals. Tonight's solid line aside, that's all owners can expect if Korver misses more time.
Mar 21 - 9:52 PM

Jose Calderon and Ante Zizic will return to the bench for Monday's game against Milwaukee.

Kyle Korver (personal) and Kevin Love (hand) are back, so the Cavs will roll out a starting five featuring George Hill, Korver, Jeff Green, LeBron James and Love. Calderon and Zizic won't be worth using anywhere with the Cavs getting healthy again.
Mar 19 - 6:51 PM

George Hill, Kyle Korver, Rodney Hood (back), LeBron James and Jeff Green will start vs. the Trail Blazers on Thursday.

Larry Nance is out with a hamstring issue, so Jeff Green will shift over to the five with Hood getting the start at the three-spot. Hood will be on a minutes limit, so he's not the most attractive target in DFS. Ante Zizic will come off the bench, but he might see decent minutes as the only healthy big on the roster.
Mar 15 - 8:50 PM

Jordan Clarkson was quiet on Thursday with nine points, two rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 17 minutes vs. the visiting Wizards.

Starting PG George Hill logged 31 minutes tonight and Clarkson was strictly deployed as his backup, which isn't what fantasy owners want to see. If he doesn't earn minutes at SG it will be hard to justify holding him in 12-team leagues, but a bit of patience is warranted as coach Ty Lue sorts out his rotations. We'll keep a close eye on Clarkson's minutes during games this Friday (at Memphis) and Sunday (vs. San Antonio).
Feb 22 - 11:18 PM

De'Aaron Fox tweaked his ankle in Monday's win over the Bulls, but said that he think's he'll "fine" and ready to play on Friday vs. Portland.

Fox tweaked his left ankle going up for a dunk attempt in the second half. He limped to the sideline and was unable to return to the game. Fortunately, X-rays came back negative. Speaking with reporters after the game, Fox downplayed the injury. He'll have three full days to rest and treat the injury. We'll have plenty of updates throughout the week. If Fox is unable to play Friday, George Hill would see an uptick in playing time (assuming Hill isn't moved before Thursday's trade deadline).
Feb 6 - 9:13 AM

Garrett Temple (sprained right ankle) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

It's unclear when Temple got injured, but the Kings are resting veterans constantly so they're likely to be cautious with even the most minor ailments. Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic and George Hill stand to gain some playing time without Temple tonight. His next chance to play comes Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.
Jan 28 - 5:27 PM

Kings coach Dave Joerger said that he will be resting two veterans in every game going forward.

It apparently started on Monday vs. the Thunder, as Zach Randolph and Vince Carter both picked up DNP-CDs without any warning from the coaching staff or reporters. The Kings are going to focus on their younger players going forward, so in addition to Z-Bo and Carter, George Hill, Garrett Temple and Kosta Koufos are going to be constant threats for rest days.
Jan 15 - 10:58 PM

Bogdan Bogdanovic and Skal Labissiere will move into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Thunder.

De’Aaron Fox, Garrett Temple and Willie Cauley-Stein are also starting, so George Hill and Zach Randolph will head to the bench. Coach Dave Joerger can't make up his mind when it comes to his lineups, so we have no idea if this permanent or just another matchup move. Bogdanovic should be owned in standard leagues, while Labissiere is just a stash for the second half of the season.
Jan 15 - 7:37 PM

An MRI on Frank Mason's right heel revealed a partial tear of the plantar fasciitis tendon, and he will miss 4-6 weeks from his initial injury on Dec. 31.

That leaves Mason with roughly 3-5 more weeks on the sidelines, and it's a tough break for the rookie guard. His absence leaves the PG to be split between De'Aaron Fox and George Hill, both of whom should absorb a handful of extra minutes.
Jan 11 - 2:23 PM

Frank Mason (bruised right heel) won't play vs. the Spurs on Monday.

The Kings said on Jan. 2 that Mason would miss approximately one week, so hopefully we'll get a positive update in the next few days. George Hill (birth of child) is also out on Monday, so De'Aaron Fox should be a lock for 32+ minutes.
Jan 8 - 7:16 PM

Frank Mason (bruised right heel) won't return to Sunday's game.

The Kings' backcourt is already shorthanded without De'Aaron Fox (quad), so hopefully Mason doesn't miss much time with this injury. Sacramento returns to action on Tuesday but is then off until Saturday, so they might sit Mason one game to play it safe and give him nearly a week of rest. We should have an update after practice on Monday.

The Kings won consecutive games for the second time all season on Wednesday, aided by Kosta Koufos' 12 points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes off the bench.

The Kings will inevitably lean into the youth movement as the season progresses, but tonight it was the veterans who did the most damage. George Hill scored 22 points on nine FG attempts, Zach Randolph added 21 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, and Koufos anchored the second unit with all of his makes coming within 10 feet of the hoop. This was his second-highest scoring game of the season, however, and we're not expecting a repeat performance any time soon.
