According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, George Hill has officially cleared waivers after being released by the Philadelphia 76ers, which now allows him to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks on a two-year $8 million contract (see Tweet below).
Charania had originally reported on Tuesday (see Tweet below) that this would happen, but he had to clear waivers first, which he has now done.
