Source: Lakers offering Jordan Hill $6 million, Timberwolves offering $15 million

on

Looks like Jordan Hill could be making a decision tomorrow. According to our friends over at Hoops-Nation.com,  Hill has a couple of offers on the table:

Our source, who has an extremely close relationship with Jordan Hill, told Hoops-Nation.com that the Lakers are trying to sign Hill to a 2-year contract that pays $3 million per season.

Minnesota is offering $5 million per season for three years, but Jordan Hill prefers to be a Los Angeles Laker.

When asked if the Dwight Howard situation is the reason Jordan Hill’s extension has been delayed so long, our source said he was “not sure”.

So, Hill has to decide between a two-year contract for $6 million with the Lakers or $15 million for three years with the Timberwolves. As Mitch Kupchak said yesterday, most of the time, players will take the more lucrative offer.

But, Hill wants to be a Laker and this team looks like they’ll be contenders next season. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

    Let me try to explain why I think you’re wrong about Jordan Hill’s minutes, and why the Lakers still want him:

    You keep referring to the championship runs with Gasol, Bynum, and Lamar, but one important difference between now and then is we had more depth at the guard positions, and no quality backup center.

    Most teams stick to an 8 man rotation in the playoffs, correct? Not so with our 2008-09 team which had Ten guys with Walton, Brown, Farmar and Vujacic contributing +10mins a game with Odom playing a pseudo-starter role. The next year Vujacic and Walton fell out of the rotation in the playoffs, and we went to Odom, Brown, and Farmar as our primary reserves.

    Kobe, Gasol, and MWP are all older, and instead of bringing in a guard for MWP and moving Kobe to the 3, they would probably rather sit him during those minutes. Jamison gives them versatility at both forward spots, and Hill can play 4 or 5. At least during the regular season, I see them using a nine man rotation since Nash only goes 30 odd minutes and I cant believe we want Kobe playing as much as he did last year. Instead of going with two PG’s like last year, Sessions and Blake, I bet we bring Jamison in at the 3 spot.

    IDK having versatile bench players is Key. Coaches find a way to get the best 8-9 players mins.
