Randle might have just about ended any need for him. I don't know if he's really a full-time Center in the NBA. I like him a lot, but Randle will do everything Jordan did for us and probably do it a little better.

If we re-signed him as a starter we'd have the shortest PF/C combination in the League. :man10:

But they'd get the most rebounds. :jam2:

Hill should be resigned without question. That low post would be chock full of energy and mobility with Hill and Randle. Couple that with potent guards and that team will be able to run and bang.

Of course, it would help to know what the hell coach we have and what system they will run. Right now I guess it's Byron and the Princeton. :man5:

We still need a backup if Randle ends up starting. If Hill could be had cheap I'd keep him as a backup PF/C, and Kelly too for the minimum, seems like a nice young PF rotation to me. That's if he can be had cheap though, not sure he can.

Randle / Kelly

^ That front line would be the best in the game within 2 years. Easily. I'd shed a tear of joy if we could pull that off. No real rim protection, but some absolutely fantastic talent.

Nash/Farmar/Marshall
Bryant/Henry/Clarkson (?)
Young/Bazemore
Randle/Kelly
Monroe/Hill/Sacre

I could root for that team like nobody's business. They'd have fire, they'd have heart, they'd be fun to root for. That team could make the playoffs too for sure.

Hoping he's the only big we spend on this season.. Grab backup C's that can be had for cheap like Kaman, Okafor, Bynum.. Hill can backup both 4 & 5 next season when we go after Marc.

Yeah, this is my sentiment too.

Hill would be nice at around $6M/year. His type of production for a big on both ends of the floor is rare.

It is what it is. He'd only play ever 6 weeks or so, I wouldn't even mind.

I'm sorry real, hopefully Mitch and Jim makes an effort but it will all be for naught when Detroit matches the offer.

Factoring in the old roster, only, and adding an FA, I'd prefer:

Nash*/Farmar/(Clarkson)
Bryant/Meeks/(Clarkson)
Young/Henry
Randle/Hill/Kelly
Monroe/Kaman/Sacre

*He'll be injured in no time flat. [Caveat: it's a contract year, so maybe he finds a way to actually play for the whole season.]

Then let them match. I'd still make the offer.

No, unless on the cheap.
Randle makes him expendable, but they do need a backup.
The starting Center is a more important issue.

Marshall behind freaking Clarkson at point or worse not on roster? :disagree: Would be a big mistake. They're probably just covering bases for Nash not playing again.

Jordan Hill for cheap and manages to stay healthy would make a prefect fit for any team. 3 Jordan's on one team :jam2:

I'd bring him back for the right price. Randle may get into foul trouble. Hill can fill in.

Every contemplated signing seems to always be followed by "at a discount" or "at the right price". I guess this is the result of the new CBA. But, I think Hill shouldn't be short changed. His effort should be rewarded. Notwithstanding the injuries, he's been on this team paying his dues and giving a valiant effort through the bad times. It would be a shame to low ball him so that you can overpay a FA.

Jordan Hill earned $3.5 million last year. I doubt he will want a pay cut.
But, if he takes $2.5 million for 4 years, I'd do it.

F*** I hope he doesn't go back to the Rockets. They didn't give him a shot when he deserved one! The let him go for Derek Fisher!

Stay in LA where we gave you a shot and then took it away and then gave it back again sometimes!

Although he would love to re-sign with the Lakers, forward Jordan Hill will likely sign with a team that offers him a stable role and a multi-year, according to a league source familiar with his thinking.

The Lakers have only definitively ruled out seldom-used forward MarShon Brooks as the lone free agent on the team, according to a league source, and interest in the 11 remaining free agents on the roster will largely hinge on two external factors. Those entail how the Lakers fare in their pursuit of LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony as well as what offers the Lakers’ free agents receive elsewhere.

The Lakers are very unlikely to grant any role player, including Hill, a deal spanning three or four years. The Lakers would like to maximize cap flexibility for Kevin Love in 2015 and Kevin Durant in 2016.

Hill’s chances of remaining with the Lakers initially appeared slim. Despite posting a career-high 9.7 points and 7.8 rebounds in the 2013-14 season, Hill grew frustrated with Mike D’Antoni’s system that featured him having a fluctuating role partly because of his preference for a so-called “small ball” system. The Lakers also believed Hill was not an ideal fit for D’Antoni’s system.

With D’Antoni’s departure, Hill’s chances of returning to the Lakers have increased. But there’s also various complicating factors. The Lakers drafted Kentucky power forward Julius Randle, a bruising post player who could take away Hill’s minutes. Hill’s preference for a long-term deal also contradicts the Lakers’ preferences for small-term deals.
