Following the announcement that Steve Nash had been traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, there was speculation that former Phoenix Suns teammate Grant Hill could follow him to L.A. Now, it appears Hill may either sign with the Lakers or choose to retire.
Grant Hill will either join Steve Nash and the Lakers or retire, a source close to the veteran forward told me.— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) July 4, 2012
Hill has played 17 seasons in the NBA, including the last five with Nash in Phoenix. The 39-year-old was rumored to be considering the Lakers even before Nash was traded to Los Angeles. HIll recently underwent the same platelet-rich plasma therapy treatment with which Kobe Bryant and others have had success.
In Los Angeles, Hill could provide a boost to the thin Lakers bench.
