Lakers, George Hill ‘serious’ on possibility of signing one-year deal

Free agent guard George Hill met with Los Angeles Lakers officials Monday about a possible deal.According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Los Angeles Lakers plan to meet with Hill with the intention of coming to terms on a one-year deal.However, Ramona Shelburne, also of ESPN, tweeted that the team could utilize both Hill and Ball by starting together in the backcourt.Hill is now the top remaining point guard on the market, so he should receive plenty of interest around the league.The 6-foot-6 point guard is expected to sign his rookie contract later today, officially making him a part of the team moving forward. With the Utah Jazz last season, he averaged a career-high 16.9 points, 4.2 assists, and 3.4 rebounds. Originally a first-round pick out of IUPUI by the San Antonio Spurs, Hill played three seasons for the Spurs before heading to the Indiana Pacers in a trade. The Lakers are discussing a contract with PG George Hill. But with Rondo likely looking to play significant minutes after a down year with the Chicago Bulls, it’s not sure whether he’ll be amenable to playing what could be an even more limited role for the Lakers.
