Spurs pick up Hill's option year
Hill averaged 5.5 points and 1.8 assists as a rookie playing behind Tony Parker last season. Spurs' coach Gregg Popovich called Hill his favorite player in training camp because of a strong preseason for the former first-round pick.
Hill is the first player from Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis to play in the NBA.
