Los Angeles Lakers: Playoffs in the east?

Jordan Hill At this point in the season, the Los Angeles Lakers are marveling over the production of surprising rookie point guard Jordan Clarkson and starting to think about the offseason. The Lakers will have a lot of cap space to chase a big name free agent or two and the looming returns of Kobe Bryant and Julius Randle has Lakers fans dreaming of the postseason, next year. It...

Lakers Rumors: L.A. “Leaning Toward” Bringing Jordan Hill Back Next Season?

Jordan Hill has been involved in a number of Lakers rumors over the years, though that’s probably to be expected seeing as he’s currently the second-longest tenured member of the purple and gold. Hill’s future is in the Lakers’ hands right now as they hold a $9 million team option on his contract for next season. And, according to Sean Deveney from Sporting News, the Lakers...

Lakers Expected To Exercise $9M Option On Jordan Hill

The Los Angeles Lakers are expected to exercise their $9 million option for 15-16 on Jordan Hill. Hill signed a two-year, $18 million deal with the Lakers last offseason. The Lakers will be active in free agency, but consider Hill to be a good value that could be used as a trade asset if necessary.

Closer to Contending: Knicks, Lakers, Celtics, or Philly?

Guest post by LarBrd33I figure those 4 teams are all "prestige" NBA franchises. They are all in the dumps right now. I was curious who was the closest to truly competing. On the surface level, you'd see Boston with the best record and equate that to mean they are the closest to competing. That's pretty inaccurate, imo. We are still a bottom 10 team right now. Nobody would...

Lakers coaches pull trade deadline prank on Jordan Hill

The NBA’s trade deadline has come and gone. Some players who were expected to be traded changed cities, like Goran Dragic and Reggie Jackson. Others who heard their names mentioned in rumors stayed put. Among the latter group is Jordan Hill. While Hill is still a member of the Lakers, for a few brief moments...Read More

Lakers Rumors: Byron Scott believes Jordan Hill was “underutilized” by Mike D’Antoni

Even though Jordan Hill played a career-high in minutes (20.8) and games (72) last season, the big man wanted more, and rightly so. Hill, along with other big men on the team, became frustrated at times throughout last season due to Mike D’Antoni’s coaching style and management skills. However, with D’Antoni’s departure, Hill decided to stay in Los Angeles and re-signed on...

Free-agent-to-be Jordan Hill only open to Lakers return if role changes next season

Jordan Hill has been a victim of The Mike D’Antoni System this season. When on the court, Hill has been productive – he recorded 18 points, 15 rebounds and 4 blocks in 29 minutes of play just last night against the Sacramento Kings – though he hasn’t received constant minutes from the head coach. The 26-year-old even went through an eight-game stretch last month where he...

Lakers Rumors: Team seeking second-round pick in Jordan Hill trade

With the trade deadline just hours away, the Los Angeles Lakers have upped their asking price for Jordan Hill, and rightly so. The Brooklyn Nets emerged as an early favorite to land Hill, yet they don’t appear to be offering any additional assets aside from the salary cap relief that a Hill deal would give the Lakers. ESPN’s Marc Stein reports that the Nets are still in the hunt...

The Los Angeles Lakers bright side

    While Los Angeles Lakers fans have been seeing some generally pedestrian, and at times, absolutely pathetic basketball the last several years, there are reasons for the Lakers, and their fans to be excited about their future. The funny thing is, more losing could be involved, which isn’t fun, but just might be necessary. First of all, embattled head coach Mike D’Antoni...
