Lakers Rumors: Rival teams interested in trading for Jordan Hill

So much for Jordan Hill’s new contract being too lucrative. According to Sean Deveney from Sporting News, rival teams are calling the Lakers to suggest “realistic” trade offers for Hill.

Nick Young takes over this postgame interview with Jordan Hill

Only Nick Young a.k.a. “Swaggy P” would take over a postgame interview of a teammate and ask him, “what’d you think of Nick Young, he’s been playing great in my eyes.” Jordan Hill came over for a postgame interview after the Lakers’ win over the woeful Pistons on TWC Sports when Swaggy P crashed the party and commandeered the microphone.  Lord, Kobe Bryant has to...

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.

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...

With the trade deadline just hours away, the Los Angeles Lakers have upped their asking price for Jordan Hill, and rightly so.

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...
