Who said you can’t go home again.
New Indiana Pacers guard George Hill might beg to differ — at least if you consider what his new team has in mind for him early next week.
The Indianapolis Star reports that in his first public appearance the team has planned for him Monday at Canseco Fieldhouse.
It’s undetermined if the return of “Indiana George” will excite the masses in his hometown like the did for long-suffering fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves last week.
But Hill is happy about coming back home to Indianapolis, where he played collegiately at IUPUI and set state scoring records at Broad Ripple High School.
“It will be really fun. I’m back in my hometown,” Hill said. “I’m with my family and my friends. I’m playing for an organization I wanted to play for for many years in my life. I’m thrilled to be there.”
