Suns pick up Hill

by Dan Bilicki In: Basketball

After six seasons in Orlando where he was frequently injured, Grant Hill has accepted a low paying contract, by his standards, to play in Phoenix. While he’s not the player that we all came to love in Detroit, he can still be a serviceable veteran influence and contribute for limited minutes. That is, if he can stay off the bench.

This should turn out well for the Suns; rolling the dice on a guy who will only cost $1.8 M and has the potential of being more than just a role player isn’t a bad play at all.

Of the great players from the 90’s, Hill was for sure one of the guys who was hurt most by injuries. I wouldn’t be surprised if his entire lower body was on the uninsurable list down at NBA headquarters.
