    the same solomon hill that avg about 5-7pts? daam, those 5-7pts must be the biggest 5-7pts in the nba. sure you can have curry drop 30 on you, but thats nothing compared to 5 big time pts.

    i was worried i was supposed to know who this was, but i'm glad others are reacting in surprise, too. other than being part of the all the hills in indiana, i'm not sure i know anything about him. has a decent WS/48.

    al jefferson needs to go punch his agent.

    4,2 PPG + 2,8 RPG + 1 APG while shooting 32% from 3-pt

    That's not DaDakota stats in KFC summer league

    That's Solomon Hill's contract year before signing a 48-52M over 4 year deal

    I just read the Zach Lowe the other day where he said that teams are not convinced that Solo Hill is an NBA player.
    Guess the Pelicans were convinced.

    Shouldn't the pelicans be worried about keeping their current players who are all explosive scorers than trying to sign scrubs to max deals. Pelicans gonna pelicans
