Default grant hill?

he can play 3 positions for us..i was thinking he'd be a nice 'PG' for the triangle. he's a ery good passer, & he has improved his 3pt shot (imo even better than whn he was at his prime), hes kinda quite good at everything. but then he'd have trouble trouble defending quick point guards as usual. if he's willing to sign for somewhere near the vets minimum or half the MLE, i think we should get him..assuming odom & ariza's status is already decided.

what do you guys think?

He'd be a great back up for the right price.

Id sign him for the minimum for about 20 mpg off the bench.

Anything else more then no.

I like the guy, but for some reason I've lost faith in him because he's played in a system in phoenix where they seem to lose interest on the most important end of the floor.

He can play D but he won't be able to play starter minutes. So if LA loses Ariza, Hill can't be the only answer. If that happened you would expect to see more of Luke next year probably.

Just thinking about this is making my mouth water.. Hill is a player with a tremendous basketball IQ that would fit perfectly in the triangle. His basketball IQ is up there with Kobe's and Pau's and IMO his is a little higher since of the experience in the league as well as him being an Alumni of Duke and a student of Mike.

I'm thinking conspiracy theory here.... LA brings in a bunch of Duke alums so when Phil retires they can have a stronger chance to hire coach K.....

I dont think I want him. He has a great legecy but hes old and could easily reinjure himself. And it does not really fix the PG problem.

There's also a SF problem. Ariza is very unhappy with LA right now. They offered him the MLE and he took it as a slap in the face. Now he is talking about going to Cleveland for the MLE just because he's so mad about it. If he leaves that's a hole that needs to be filled.

Guys, what are your thoughts on possibly signing Matt Barnes or Hakim Warrick with partial or perhaps full MLE??

Both fill the SF position and are argubaly more talented than Ariza. Both can play a lil D and shoot the rock.

Default Re: grant hill?

Also guys, Hedo/Ariza are likely to go to Portland/Toronto

That frees up Marion to be available for MLE

He's a better defender and practically everything else too than ariza...MLE 3 years...4th team option...

Fish
Kobe
Marion
Gasol
Bynum

Odom

CHAMPIONSHIP BABY.

I know Marion is available but I think he'll get more than the MLE. If that is all he's going to take I think a lot of teams would be interested. He'd be the best defender available at that position besides Artest.

Yeah others wud be interested...I don't see him getting more if Toronto/Portland are off the table

Sacramento - rebuilding
OKC - Durant and Green
Memphis - They're Young, Rudy Gay
Atlanta - Youth, Marvin Williams resigns
Minny - rebuilding

used up space:
Detroit
Portland (hedo)
Toronto (trev)
