    Default Jordan Hill

    Any interest in him?

    I think he can fill that void at PF.

    Hes young and can play defence.

    A young athletic PF who can defend the rim, block shots, attack offensive glass is exactly what we need. I could care less about offense if the guy can be a monster in the paint. Besides, if they are good offensively we would be paying premium price. Is Hill available?

    Houston has a bunch of PF's now, I would try to get Scola first and Patrick Patterson 2nd, Hill could be like a decent replacement to Solomon.

    Houston apparently offered Hill + Thabeet to Golden State for Biedrins, the WARRIORS said no, that's bizarre. Biedrins has 3/$27 mil left and has apparently forgotten how to play basketball or something.

    Anyway, he is available and the price isn't too high apparently. Guy's no savior but I'd definitely be interested in bringing him in on the cheap.

    A big and athletic center for Rush? Would you do it if you were Phoenix? I don't think so.

    I like those guys you mentioned but Hill is bigger, longer, and more athletic in terms of defense. He would be my pick because he is young, cheap and a potential monster on D. He is a long 6'10

    If they need a wing it would require a 1st to go with it. Dont think I would do that for a Center. But I would in a second for a PF/C combo who plays D.

    He is worth more than that, Robin Lopez is pretty much a younger version of Tyson Chandler, we would have to give more than Rush to get him.

    You think? I don't think Robin Lopez is all that good. Wouldn't mind Jordan Hill though.

    They have Gortat, Frye and just drafted Markieff. I always thought that the Suns weren't always enamored with Robin.

    If anything, we've always been looking for a "Robin" for our answer to our "Batman"....why not get an actual guy named Robin?

    I'd LOVE to get Jordan Hill. Hell, if the price isn't high, I'd love Thabeet as a backup Center.

    He actually was quite bad on defense last year. He played mostly at the 5; inexperience and a lack of strength did him in. Their D was 5 point better when he was on the bench, and opposing 5's averaged 22 pts/48 mins against him. He may be good eventually, but he won't help now.

    Also, Houston will want a center in return, since they lost Brad Miller and Yao's status is up in the air. They only have Chuck Hayes and Thabeet left.

    We could sign and trade Foster (who is form Texas) and/or Soloman Jones

    How about Earl Clark to replace Solo Jones spot as 3rd center off the bench, he's a FA and would be cheap, and has potential defensively and a lil Offense, and wasn't bird interested in him last trade deadline???

    Clark is closer to a 3 than he is a 5.

    He's bulked up considerably in Orlando.



    He looks the part of a PF now, which is not to say that he can play PF effectively. But his short stint in Orlando seems promising:

    http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/...-gm-otis-smith

    At the suggestion of the Magic's coaching staff, he added 10 pounds of muscle within two months of arriving in Orlando. Knowing he needed to improve offensively, he went through extra shooting drills after practices and after games. He studied lots and lots of film with Magic assistants.

    Those assertions of poor work ethic? The Magic didn't see it.

    "It's been a good experience for me, coming to a team that accepted me with open arms," said Clark, 23. "I just look forward to staying here and building it with the team."

    Clark, an unrestricted free agent, will gauge interest from other teams this summer, although he did say "I don't want to play anywhere else." Magic GM Otis Smith said he likes Clark but the two sides have not begun talks on a new contract.

    Clark has the potential to be a legitimate forward, at either spot. He now weighs almost 250 pounds and his wingspan is 7 feet, 2 inches, second on the Magic to only Dwight Howard's 7-foot-5 reach. But even with that size, Clark is still quick and athletic enough to defend opposing threes.

    Clark demonstrated his defensive ability at times this year, helping limit Kevin Durant and LeBron James to sub-par performances during the regular season. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy has said several times he believes Clark can be a "special" defender in the NBA.

    "His potential as a defensive player and as a defensive impact guy is unlimited," Van Gundy said, "if he can get down some better team defensive principles and focus and if he can truly understand that his route to being a special player in this league lies at the defensive end."

    Clark's offensive skills are still raw and he doesn't always seem to grasp the team's defensive scheme. That's what kept him on the bench in this year's playoffs.
    Would love to add another quality defender on the cheap.

    It sounds like the price is pretty damned low to me.

    Thank you. Jordan Hill is a bust.

    I didn't like him in college and he hasn't shown that he can play at the NBA level. He's like Ike Diogu in that he can score but he doesn't understand basketball plays and is out of position all the time. IOW, he has a low basketball IQ.

    Carl Landry and Chuck Hayes are much better prospects to go after and can be signed through free agency without trading any assets.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I wouldn't. I always want to get the best player in a trade and I believe that's Hibbert.
