Steve Nash Trade: Grant Hill Could Follow To Los Angeles

The trade that will bring Steve Nash to the Los Angeles Lakers could play a major role in also bringing former Phoenix Suns teammate Grant Hill to the Staples Center.

Sources told ESPN.com that Nash will make a strong push to convince his close friend to join him in Los Angeles, and two other recent reports suggest it's all but certain that Hill will head for SoCal:

  • Hill had already listed the Lakers as one of four finalists as recently as last weekend;
  • Hill recently returned from Germany to undergo the same platelet-rich plasma therapy treatment on his knee that Kobe Bryant underwent earlier in his career.

Hill, 39, has never won an NBA title. With the Lakers now ranking among the serious contenders in the 2012-13 NBA season, this could be his best and final opportunity to get a ring before he retires.
