Franchise C? Not a chance.. He could be an outstanding role player for us if we get rid of Pau & open up more of an opportunity for him to see more minutes as the only big on the floor. Assuming we don't change coaches. I would even go so far as to say if his role increased to say 30 MPG he'd be right there with the top rebounders in the league.

He is a great rebounder.
Kaman can play, too, if given a chance.
Of course, we need to change coaches.

There are not that many talented bigs available.

Hill & Kaman don't get any playing time because both are not in Lakers plan for next year. That's as simple as that.
Offseason's finished for my long sleeping nights. NBA is back !!

Hill is a good bench player. He hustles and he is mainly efficient.

Problem: he is like Slava Medvedenko....dead end on offense. Every time he gets the ball he feels he needs to score...and unfortunetly he is a one trick pony with that right handed hook...at anything else he is pretty useless offensively.

You really think his offense is a problem? Despite having a one trick pony offense, it's pretty damn effective. I remember seeing his FG% at 50+ most games. He usually doesn't miss that hook. On top of it, his hustle and put backs give us much needed points and energy. Occasional 10-12ft jumper.

Like you said he is a role player. I don't think anyone seriously thinks he's a starter. So for his role he gets the job done and more.

I don't see anything like Slava in Hill. Hill is 26 and having his best season. Slava was out of the league at 27. I know you're not saying they're the same player, but Hill is a better offensive player by a solid margin - career 51% FGs, Slava shot 45%, was at 50% only once and never above that mark. Slava shot A LOT when he played, about 25% more frequently than Hill does. And Slava surely didn't play D.

Chillbongo: I do think Hill can start. I don't think he should play 30+ MPG, but he can start and finish games.

Speaking of Slava: "Basketball is like ball. It's all a circle."
