(NEW YORK) — The Los Angeles Lakers already traded for former Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash, and they may be looking to another former Phoenix Sun. According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, veteran forward Grant Hill will either sign with the Lakers or retire.
Hill would join Nash in Los Angeles, but as a reserve. He’d likely come off the bench after being a starer for the majority of his career.
The now 39-year-old Hill would be a welcomed addition to the Lakers. At one point, Hill’s career was in jeopardy as he dealt with numerous injuries while a member of the Orlando Magic. In six seasons in Orlando, he never played in more than 67 games in one season. In five seasons with the Suns, Hill played less than 67 games just once and that was this past season where there was a lockout-shortened schedule.
Hill has played 17 seasons in the NBA for the Pistons, Magic, and Suns. This past season he averaged 10.2 points and 3.5 rebounds for the Suns.
