NBA Rumors: Jordan Hill Will Visit Timberwolves, According To Report

Lakers free-agent power forward Jordan Hill played well at times during the playoffs last season and now may turn those performances into a lucrative free-agent contract. Hill will make his first official visit Monday, when he heads to Minneapolis, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Lakers acquired the 24-year-old from Houston at the trade deadline. Hill played in just seven regular season games for Los Angeles, but saw time in 12 postseason games averaging 4.8 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. Los Angeles can offer Hill a four-year contract worth close to $17 million, but can't outbid Minnesota who has nearly $20 million in cap space.

The Lakers and Timberwolves aren't the only teams interested in Hill as the Warriors, Heat and Magic are also reportedly courting the thee-year forward. During his career, Hill has averaged 5.3 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
