With free agency underway, Jordan Hill appears to be something of a hot commodity. We've already heard today that the Warriors are expected to kick the tires on the big man, who will also meet with the Timberwolves on Monday. The Lakers have interest in bringing Hill back, and have had a "very good discussion" with his agent tonight, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com (via Twitter). McMenamin says the Magic have expressed interest as well (Twitter link), while Sean Deveney of the Sporting News tweets that the Heat and Suns are also in pursuit.
Hill, a former eighth overall pick, was traded from the Rockets to the Lakers at the deadline, and didn't receive a ton of playing time for either team this season. He was productive in his limited minutes though, averaging 5.0 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 15.8 PER in 14.1 minutes per contest overall. He also had a memorable performance for the Lakers in their first round series against the Nuggets, posting a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) and grabbing seven offensive boards in L.A.'s Game 4 win in Denver.
Chuck Myron of Hoops Rumors examined Hill's free agent stock earlier this offseason.
