Lakers Reportedly Interested in Veteran Forward Grant Hill
According to Newsday’s Alan Hahn there are numerous teams interested in veteran forward Grant Hill, and one of those teams could be the Los Angeles Lakers.
The other team that is reportedly looking to make a run at signing Hill is the New York Knicks.
“A person with knowledge of the situation said the Knicks are also interested in Grant Hill. Hill strongly considered an offer by the Knicks in 2009 but decided to stay with the Suns. The Lakers reportedly also have Hill on the radar. “
Those familiar with Hill’s career know all too well the troubles he has faced in the past with injuries. However, the last few seasons have been very favorable for him as he’s been able to stay healthy and produce at a high level as a role player for the Phoenix Suns.
If Hill stays healthy he would be a valuable asset for any team looking for veteran leadership off the bench. Last season Hill averaged 13.2 points and 30.1 minutes for Phoenix.
