PF/C, 6’10, 235lbs, 29 years old, 8 years of experience
It was a very random move to give a shade over $4 million to Hill, only to proceed to bench him all year. Receiving only 47 minutes, Hill cannot be said to have done anything well or anything badly; he didn’t do any-thing at all. The Hill of years prior is worthy of that money, a good rebounder and decent finisher at the rim who takes a lot of jump shots from the short and mid-range areas, despite not really making that many of them. The defence lapses and he is not a rim protector, yet Hill could once again be a good spot-minute back-up. Could probably have been this year, too.
Player Plan: Has an unguaranteed $4.18 million contract that needn’t be kept on the books.

Hill was just one many rewards the Rockets enjoyed from dealing Tracy McGrady's expiring contract. He's not as good as Carl Landry and probably never will be, but he had a decent rookie year nonetheless. This doesn't mean, though, that he's a viable backup centre option. Even though he's going to play centre for this summer league, I strongly don't recommend he plays there in the NBA. Not at 235lbs.
