Lakers Rumors: Jordan Hill Headed To The Brooklyn Nets?

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The Los Angeles Lakers might be on the verge of making a deal before the NBA trade deadline. Four-time NBA All-Star Pau Gasol has been rumored on his way out via trade, but now it may be Jordan Hill on his way out before Feb. 20.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of the Yahoo Sports, the Lakers have discussed sending Hill to the Brooklyn Nets:

This move by the Lakers would be strictly to cut Hill’s salary from the books. No player would be coming to Los Angeles in exchange for Hill. Although this deal has just only been discussed, this is the kind of trade the Lakers appear to be on looking for and it may ultimately come to fruition.

If the Nets and Lakers make this deal, Brooklyn will stand to pay a considerable amount according to Wojnarowski:

With only a few days left before the buzzer sounds on the trade deadline, the rumors will continue to swirl. Gasol may still be headed out of town regardless of if the Lakers trade Hill or not.

Needless to say, discussions will be ongoing for the Lakers and other teams in terms of trades potentially going down before the deadline.

    Also read Steve Blake might get traded to Golden State for a trade exception.Another salary dump,these are the times we are in with the new CBA.

    • Devon Murray

      Yes I think, with Farmar, Marshall and the possibility of Exum being drafted they are clearing room in the back court and salary dump..

  • LakersHeatBeef

    I wonder if any picks are coming to us if Gasol is traded.

    • Devon Murray

      Yes if Gasol is trade to Suns for E.O we will get back at least 2 frp…

      • LakersHeatBeef

        Yes that would be a plus to the Lakers if they get back assets.

        • Devon Murray

          Yes with the Lakers having a Lotto pick, and two extra picks from the suns, and if J.Hill is traded that gives the lakers tax relief and 30mil for FA, this year and 2015 when K. Love is up for Free agency…

    • Sergito Arriaga

      if he is traded to the suns, we would get okafor and their draft pick from pacers. So if pacers end with the best record we would get the last pick in the 1st round.

      • LakersHeatBeef

        We could use any pick we can get tbh.

      • Devon Murray

        and I believe the suns pick, which was the lakers pick before the Nash trade, which would be a mid first round, so with a top 5/6 pick, mid round pick, and the last first round pick, 30 plus million Mitch has a plan…we just have to watch it play out…

    (cont.) Sam’s point is that #Warriors have mostly trade exceptions to offer, so it’s not likely to be blockbuster. Trade deadline is Thurs.

    Longtime friend of the show @sam_amick of USA Today throws out Steve Blake as one name #Warriors might grab at trade deadline. Speculating.

  • Swaggy Rambo

    Why not Kaman? Doesn’t he make more than Jordan and is better offensively.

    • Sergito Arriaga

      I believe under the new CBA rules you aren’t able to trade a player you just acquired. Kaman is the better offensive player, but hill gets most of his points off of putbacks.

    • Raffaele D’Abrusco

      Nets don’t need a lot of scoring, they need more rebounding and aggressiveness on the boards. The Big Ticket is experiencing a quick physical decline.

  • Batch Molina

    why jordan hill? why him.. TRADE pau gasol & steve nash to carlos boozer & kirk hinrich..

    • jerrylai8

      I do not like that deal actually.

    • Devon Murray

      Batch actually the Bulls are going to amnesty Boozer in attempts to go after Melo, so if the Lakers want Boozer all they have to do is wait til this June and get him without giving up anything…

  • Raffaele D’Abrusco

    Shed salary and amass (if possible) draft picks. That’s the way to go as Lakers are de facto tanking. Then, with just a little bit of luck in the lottery and a couple of good free agents this and next years, we will be back to contending in two seasons time.

    • Devon Murray

      Maybe even next year get back in the hunt, the guys that we have now as we know will be reserves, coming into next year they will have the confidence to compete with most starters in the league having Kobe, that FA this year and Top pick having their backs and (I am praying to the basketball Gods) K.Love…

      • Raffaele D’Abrusco

        Amen, Devon. I’d love to see some of these guys donning our colors next year, if this won’t harm flexibility.

        • Devon Murray

          Yes, it will give them a lot of flexibility, with kobe making 24mil a year he took 6 more million than what D Wade, LBJ and Bosh took with 16-17 million a year, J hill’s salary dump gives the Lakers back that 6 million they would have had…

  • Slater

    Why woukd u trade argueably the best player on the lakers this year in hill? for nothing? Can we trade the gm??

    • Devon Murray

      You trade hill because he is a unrestricted fa, his +/- is horrible when he plays more than 15 mins per despite his numbers, and more importantly it helps give the Lakers tax relief …

  • X

    At least get a 2nd round pick from Nets. Jordan Hill is a double-double guy.

    • Devon Murray

      I think just using a salary dump the Lakers can get a proven guy with the extra money… 2nd round picks rarely turn out to be guys in the league and they can always get guys from the D league were most second round players go anyway…

      • X

        True but if we have the 2nd round pick, we can use it to leverage when it come to trading players. There are always teams who are interested in the 2nd round pick.

        Plus, we have a little bit of success with 2nd round pick: Sacre & Kelly. I know it’s a far-fetch but nothing is impossible. We might get someone like Isaiah Thomas (Sacremento Kings) if we are lucky.

        • Devon Murray

          Great point, youre totally right…

  • Jdis

    MARSHALL YOUNG HILL SHOULD BE KEEPERS

  • BT

    The Lakers should have gotten rid of Jordan Hill 3 seasons ago!!!
