New Laker Steve Nash Will Try to Convince Grant Hill to Sign
Sources told ESPN.com that Nash will try to convince longtime teammate Grant Hill, one of his closest friends in the game, to join him with the Lakers.
Grant Hill has been a consistent role player for the Phoenix Suns for the past few years and has the maturity and leadership qualities that can do nothing but help a Lakers squad who is in championship or bust mode.
With the loss of Matt Barnes to free agency, Hill should be able to provide the scoring and leadership off the bench to help maintain leads established by the starters. Hill averaged 10 pts 4 boards and 2 assists last year while shooting 48% from the field.
For those of you too young to remember, Grant Hill was once regarded one of the best players on the planet before a ankle injury slowed him down. Check out this video to just get a taste of what Hill was and know that this guy knows how to play the game of basketball:
