Of course they are. 2-year deal worth 6M or 3-year deal worth 15M?
I know, we are a contender and they aren't, but still, like Mitch said, 9 out of 10 times the player chooses money. Also, don't forget that Minny has less bigs and Hill would get more minutes. More minutes = better stats = more money, usually.

Well, we can hope for S&T (for a guard that can create his own shot, please!)

Yes. That's the way to go IMO. Assuming Hill is OK with it.. I don't know if we can find him a deal as good as the Minny one.. And they won't do a S&T when they can easily just sign him without giving up anything.

It's been discussed so many times already, but if the reports about us being interested in Brandon Rush are true, as well as the reports about the Warriors being interested in Jordan Hill, that would be the ideal S&T for us.

Hopefully that's the way it goes down.

Our source, who has an extremely close relationship with Jordan Hill, told Hoops-Nation.com that the Lakers are trying to sign Hill to a 2-year contract that pays $3 million per season.

Minnesota is offering $5 million per season for three years, but Jordan Hill prefers to be a Los Angeles Laker.

When asked if the Dwight Howard situation is the reason Jordan Hill’s extension has been delayed so long, our source said he was “not sure”.

Source: HoopsNation.com Via lakerholicz.com

Depending on what our roster looks like post Howard trade, maybe Minne could make us a more appealing offer.. If we take on J-Rich, how about getting Minne to eat Blake's contract along with Hill @ 5M per for Barea & Wes Johnson? After missing out on Batum, Minne can afford to absorb a bit of salary..

Nash/Barea
Kobe/J-Rich
Ron/Wes
Pau/Jamison
D12

We'd be a legit 2 deep at every position except C, where Pau will likely play every minute that Dwight doesn't..

Glad to see it. Like everyone else I was puzzled at the trade that brought him to LA until he finally got burn. Fills a very good role. Active big off the bench. Played well with both Bynum & Gasol. Now we will need a backup SG and that 500lb gorilla known as the D12 saga.

Awesome! Great offseason so far. Amazing, really. So stoked to have J. Hill back, plus Jamison and of course the incredible Steve Nash heist.

All great news and great additions. If we can just nab a decent backup SG somewhere for cheap I'll be ecstatic.

Woo! Great news!
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

4 million a year for a good 20 game stretch.... I hope they know what they're doing.... I hope the second year is a team option.

I'm torn on Hill.... he played well for us but in numerous opportunities before he didn't stick in the rotation in NY or Houston.....

I still think we need a legit back-up center somewhere on the bench.... and not Oneal.

Pau is still the backup Center of this team.. A third big man who can buffer the center position between Pau and Bynum is Hill and we hes back

And yet our FO is too busy on acquiring D12! :man12:

Great offseason so far! :bow:
“Look, we don’t get five championships by being sympathetic towards each other and kissing each other’s a– during the game,” Bryant said Wednesday when asked about the Lakers’ upcoming game against the Thunder next week. “I’m going to demolish him. He understands that. If he switches off on me in the post, there’s going to be problems. I’m sure he’ll put an elbow right in my back, and that’s why we love each other.”

According to Eric PIncus

I have Jordan Hill at $7,537,494 for 2 years (unofficially) - limited to the declined year from Rockets in first year

Lakers can't near $8 mil via MLE to pay Jordan Hill over 2 - they have mini MLE - this is through partial Bird Rights - more than mini MLE

I get what you are saying but during that stretch with us he really didn't do anything that I thought would be hard to sustain..
It wasn't as if he was shooting lights out or something, basically all he gave us was hustle & intensity (which we desperately needed from at least one big). IMO that shouldn't be hard to sustain, I don't see a reason why he wouldn't keep playing that way, he knows that's what he's here for.
If anything, a full training camp + a defined rotation & role should benefit him and make him even more consistent..
