Lakers, Others Eyeing Grant Hill

Back in March, Grant Hill told Chris Tomasson of FOX Sports Florida that he hopes to keep playing in the NBA until he "can't go or it's not fun anymore." Hill doesn't seem to be contemplating retirement this summer, so he must still be having fun. He also recently underwent the platelet-enrichment procedure that Kobe Bryant popularized among NBA players, according to Ric Bucher of (via Twitter). Bucher adds that the Lakers, Suns, Raptors, and Knicks are among the teams with interest in signing the veteran forward.

Hill, who will turn 40 in October, saw his numbers slip a little this season in Phoenix, averaging career-lows in points (10.2), rebounds (3.5), minutes (28.1), and PER (12.3). He may not garner more than the veteran's minimum on the open market, but he still appears to be a useful rotation piece that can provide veteran leadership.

When Ryan Raroque of Hoops Rumors assessed Hill's free agent stock earlier in the offseason, he speculated that Hill could sign wherever Steve Nash ends up. That's looking like a very real possibility now, as the Suns, Raptors, and Knicks are all making a push to sign Nash as well.

    Steve Nash + Grant Hill to the Lakers would be enough for Kobe to get 1 or 2 more rings.
