Hill could be on his way to Indiana in trade for Leonard

HillAccording to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Spurs could be sending guard George Hill back to his home state in Indiana.

Wojnarowski said Hill will be traded in a package that would bring Kawhi Leonard to the Spurs.

Leonard was just drafted by the Pacers after falling past the lottery.

Leonard is a 6-7 small forward from San Diego State. He is a high-energy player, a great rebounder for his size, is very athletic and has an impressive 7-3 wingspan.

A straight up Hill for Leonard trade does not make sense, so the Spurs should be receiving more back in return. A player like Roy Hibbert would be a welcome addition to the Spurs, but giving away someone who could become a franchise player in San Antonio will not be well-liked by Spurs fans. 

Update: The Spurs will recieve the 49th pick as part of the deal.
