Jordan Hill Discussion: Back for 2 yr/$18 mil

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.

I don't think we can offer him the "stable" gig he's looking for with Randle on board. Then add in the fact that he wants a 3-4 year deal, I'd say he's gone.

It's too bad, but I agree.


I think he'd make a perfect big man off the bench for us with Randle and a taller Center though... Damn.

That's a shame, I hate to lose Hill because we won't budge ok on maximum 2 year contracts. At the same time he has been injured a lot, so you cannot afford to overpay for him.

If I was a big man for LA and played last year, I wouldn't be either.

I would love to see Hill back, but if he wants more than 2 years he's going to be shown the door.

For those thinking that Jordan Hill is definitely out with the @Lakers, think again ... his reps were among their round of midnight calls.

I really want Hill to be our starting center. Great defender, shot blocker and hustles all around.

For 15 to 20 mins. We need him to share time with Kaman again maybe.

Hill is really good, but the perfect role for him is a hybrid PF/C , depending on the matchup -- off the bench. If he is OK with that, I think we could offer him a 3-year deal. I don't see any downsides to this if the price is right.

He is injuries prone, so a longer contract in the back of his mind will be better.

Not injury prone, "injuries" prone.

He's not signing there for the minimum. Only way he goes there is if Miami has cap space, meaning Lebron went to Cleveland.
