Outside of Malcolm Brogdon, the Milwaukee Bucks are doing their best to bring back as much of last season’s 60-win team as possible.

The Bucks have agreed on a three-year, $29 million deal with point guard George Hill, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The 33-year-old Hill averaged 7.6 points and 2.3 assists per game in a season split between the Bucks and Cleveland Cavaliers last year. A well-regarded defensive player, Hill was one of many players the Bucks needed to retain in free agency.

In addition to Hill, the Bucks managed to agree with All-Star Khris Middleton on a five-year, $178 million deal and bring back center Brook Lopez on a four-year, $52 million deal.

The team’s biggest departure was guard Malcolm Brogdon, who landed with the Indiana Pacers on a four-year, $85 million deal. The Bucks were at least able to recoup a first-round pick and two second-rounders in a sign-and-trade with the Pacers, something the team could want going forward now that it has locked down Giannis Antetokounmpo’s primary supporting cast for next season.
