Update (Feb. 20, 12:00pm PST) – Jordan Hill, along with Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman, remains a Laker through the 2014 NBA Trade Deadline.

Update (Feb. 19, 11:00am PST) – The Lakers and Brooklyn Nets are reportedly progressing on a deal to send Jordan Hill to Brooklyn.

Along with the Nets, the Phoenix Suns have emerged as a potential suitor for Hill.

Feb. 17, 4:00pm PST – According to Yahoo Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers have had discussions on a deal to send forward/center Jordan Hill to the Brooklyn Nets. 

The Nets have a $5.25 million disabled player exception that they could use to absorb the remaining $3.5 million on Hill’s expiring contract.

As Wojnarowski mentions, Hill has never been a particular favorite of head coach Mike D’Antoni. If D’Antoni remains the coach this summer, Hill does not seem to factor into the Lakers’ long term plans.

Moving Hill to the Nets before the trade deadline, while receiving nothing but cap relief in return, would help the Lakers as they attempt to get under the luxury tax threshold this season.

The 2014 NBA Trade Deadline is Thursday, February 20 at 12:00pm PST.

    Why would we trade hill for nothing in return that’s the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard he’s got a ton of talent that’s just plain stupid!

    • Paytc

      I agree ! And far more than just talent…. Jordan Hill has heart ! He consistently comes to play hard, at home and on the road.

  • Se7en

    Don’t trade Hill, fire D’Antoni

  • quickster

    Get rid of that coach who doesn’t believe in playing defense.

  • Robert Kaufman

    Hill is a valuable and relatively inexpensive player who can come off the bench on a re-vamped Laker team next year as either a forward or center. This, to my simplistic way of thinking, makes him very valuable.

  • Robert Kaufman

    Oh, yeah. And as for all of you who want to get rid of D’Antoni, well all I can say is look at his record with the Lakers and his ability to adapt to the talent he is given. Look how many Championships he won using his wonderful “all offense – no defense” strategy. Well, okay, on second thought, maybe you don’t want to look at any of that. But D’Antoni’s value to a re-vamped Laker team next year is … uh … Well, give me some time and I’ll figure something out. Wonder what Fisher is doing next year?
