    Steal. That's the same $$ he was making under the old cap in Indiana I believe.

    Hill probably won't live up to lotto pick status, but he's solid in the pick and pop, okay at rebounding and he's not entirely useless on defense.

    For a bench bigman that could occasionally start in case of injury, you could do much worse.

    JHill isn't a basketball player. He's a tall guy collecting a paycheck. I say that as a Wildcat alum. I don't think I've seen an ounce of growth from him since leaving Tucson.

    He's definitely not going to wow anybody, but statistically he's productive when he's on the court.

    That said, I don't want him nor do I trust him. It's no surprise this is his, what, 5th team in seven seasons? Probably a steal at $4M per year, though.

    Not true. He's at least 5 lbs heavier than before.

    Would definitely add him for the minimum if he's interested.

    I forgot he was still in the NBA, or maybe I'm getting him mixed up with his brother Chase Budinger.

    I think Milsap would be a great fit.

    Towns and Milsap would kill teams in the paint, both extremely versatile, bruising yet agile big men. He'd be a great defensive and veteran leader for them on court as well.

    I agree. Always been a Hill fan. He would be a cheap big man
