As the days tick down until NBA free agency officially opens on July 1, unrestricted free agent Jordan Hill and the Los Angeles Lakers both want to see the 6-foot-10 big man wearing purple and gold next season.
“They’re the leader in the clubhouse right now,” Hill’s agent, Kevin Bradbury, told ESPNLosAngeles.com on Wednesday.
Right at the top of the Lakers’ to-do list come July 1 is to engage Hill in contract negotiations, a source familiar with the team’s thinking told ESPNLosAngeles.com. Even though Hill is unrestricted and the Lakers are over the luxury tax for next season, the Lakers hold partial Bird rights to him and can offer Hill a maximum of $3,632,450 a season for up to five years.
