you can have fire sale but nobody is giving u a 1st rounder for hill or wesley johnson or even meeks in next years deep draft....
we need to save $$$ for 1 max guy atleast....
so far for the month of Dec. He is averaging 9 pts, 7 rebs, 65%Fg at only 18 mins/game.
Last 5 games 10 pts, 7.6 reb, 70% FG at only 19 mins/game.
Last game vs Charlotte, MDA finally used him for 31 mins, collected 9 rebs, 15 pts, missed only 2 of 7 shots.
I was in Staples vs the Raptors when MDA, chose to prioritize Sacre and Williams first, and yet Jordan registered 11 pts, 8 reb at only 20 mins, out performing Pau, Shawne and Sacre.
I get it, Hill is not a stretch 4 that MDA likes, he never played his bigs who can't shoot.
Lakers lost 12 games when he played less than 20 mins while they won 11 when he ave 23 mins.
It's very hard to put up good numbers when you have limited playing time and yes he will have bad games even when he plays more than 25 mins, but I strongly believe that there are several teams out there that can use Hill better.
