The Los Angeles Lakers have been doing some work during NBA free agency and are rumored to be in play for All-Star center Dwight Howard, but in the meantime they have agreed to a contract with free agent Jordan Hill, according to his agent.
Jordan Hill has reached agreement on a two-year, nearly $8 million deal with the Lakers, his agent Kevin Bradbury tells Y! Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 21, 2012
Hill was originally drafted by the New York Knicks in the 2009 NBA Draft with the No. 8 overall pick. In 2010 Hill was traded to the Houston Rockets in a three-team deal and was then traded again in 2012 to the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Lakers obviously liked what they saw in Hill off the bench and decided to bring the center back on a two-year deal.
