To the shock of the Spurs fans, George Hill, back up point guard and fan favorite, has been traded to the Indiana Pacers for their 15th and 42nd picks in the 2011 NBA Draft.
Kawhi Leonard, Forward, 6-7, 225 lbs from San Diego State, is reportedly going to San Antonio for point guard George Hill. The Pacers will also send the #42 overall pick and the rights to Erazem Lorbek.
Nobody could've guessed that Kawhi Leonard would've slipped all the way to the 15th pick in the 2011 draft, but he most certainly did, and the Indiana Pacers didn't waste too much time reining him in.
On Twitter a very emotional Hill tweeted:
Very emotional moment right now!!! But just want to Thank Everyone for all the Support. SA has been great to me and will never forget it!!
We here at MVPTexas wish George best wishes and good luck with the Pacers.Â He will be missed by Spurs fans who also wish him well.
