Former first-round pick George Hill has signed with the Sacramento Kings following ESPN reports that he was in talks with the Los Angeles Lakers on a short-term deal:

Hill is coming off a career-year in Utah, where he averaged 16.9 points per game. He helped the Jazz to the playoffs alongside All-Star Gordon Hayward.
