Well, this wasn't the free agent news everyone was waiting for on Independence Day, but one key member of last season's Utah Jazz squad has reportedly made a decision on where he'll play next season.
According to reports Tuesday, the Kings have agreed to a three-year, $57 million deal with veteran George Hill. They also reached terms on a two-year, $24 million.

David Aldridge of TNT added that the third year of the Hill deal is partially guaranteed.
The 31-year-old Hill was impressive for the Jazz last season when he was able to stay on the court, averaging 16.9 points and 4.2 assists, while shooting over 40 percent from 3-point land. However, he only played 49 games due to various injuries. He also missed the last three games of their second-round series against the Warriors.
