AUGUST 5: Hill has officially signed, according to a team press release. It’s a minimum-salary deal.
AUGUST 2: Free agent forward Solomon Hill has agreed to re-sign with the Hawks on a one-year deal, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets.
In his eight-year career, Hill has played for five teams. In part due to frontcourt injuries, Hill saw action in 71 regular-season games, including 16 starts.
He was the fifth option offensively, averaging just 4.2 shot attempts and 4.5 PPG in 21.3 MPG. He also appeared in 14 playoff games during the team’s run to the conference finals, though his playing time dropped. He only appeared in four games against the Bucks during the Eastern Conference Finals.
However, the front office valued Hill enough to bring him back on a short team deal, likely the veteran’s minimum or something close to it.

Heat legend. Was on top of my list for Atlanta last season, and was really big for them all season. Was also on my list for a potential Heat reunion. Happy for him to stay in 1 spot where he is a leader
He’s a good con man. That’s about it. What the Hawks see is beyond me. If it’s anything other than vet min this was a waste. Congrats to him on the bank he’s earned but he’s proof you can be extremely mediocre in the NBA these days and walk away with 40M.
I would rather see a G-Leaguer get his roster spot. You want ‘leadership’ put him in khakis and a polo and hire him as an assistant.
Wow lol. When he started getting more playing time, especoslly at the 4 where he should have been, that’s when they started winning. Theres a reason he was literally on top of my list for them last year
You’re not sarcastic apparently. One year as a backup, PER8, and he’s a legend. Serious.
You’ve been saying the dumbest things lately. Wow lol. Your list is off. I don’t recall mention of Heat Hill either, separate from Iguodala.
Hill is a BB thug nothing more. His high point was crashing into Lebron’s calf AFTER LJ picked up a loose ball. Ah darn missed the ball; had no chance really, but injured the star hooray. ATL did win that game.
ATL did well at the starts of months, oddly, 8-0 start of March, 7-1 start of April, 7-1 start of May followed by whipping the Knicks for a great May.
22-2 is 92%; the rest of the year, 19-29, 40%.
Hill started for the April run but not for March, May or the playoffs (except 1-2 vs 6ers). RS stats: PER=7, on-off= minus 1. Playoff stats PER=1, on-off=minus 20.
geez x%, cold.
Cold is good & right if it is true like in this case so well put by x%sure, so all happy with it!
The Heat legend comment is a meme…but wow so sorry that someone was playing hard on the team playing against LeBron.
+2 with him on the floor for the season, and also he was positive defensive box plus/minus, which is necessary for them b/c of the rest of their team…also missing DeAndre Hunter meant they needed help defensively at the 4…
Again. You all look at the game too individually. It’s not about that
Iguodala and Hill have enough experiences to become Lakers
Hill is far too young to play for the Lakers.
He makes a mountain out of a mile hill…get it?
This dude really messed up the Lakers season. Should think about switching to rugby.
