visiion: Yeah I would look at Lewis first, but honestly if it came down to either of those guys, they're not core building blocks. They'd both server a minimal purpose off the bench. Really its 6 of one, a half dozen of the other with those two guys.

I would pick grant hill because lewis is a bum. Atleast grant hill plays a role. Who knows maybe he can even get steve nash to join us too.

Not saying it will fix the team completely, But it will give us the tools we need.

Grant hill is still a good player.

This. Not my first option. But for the vet min, not a bad option to come back to if all else fails. Thing is Hill can actually still play defense at his age. And this team is in dire need of defenders, especially off the bench. Most would look at it as getting older but it would actually make one of the weakest areas of this team(bench) better.

If I am Hill I go to Miami and win a ship. He is a great teammate and would fit in well anywhere he decides to go. OKC would be a great place also for him. Chase a championship. It's OK.
"The way Steve is as a teammate, the way he sets the tone, the way the team kind of takes on his persona. As a coach, that's the best thing in the world. It's easy to coach. He's taking care of the chemistry. You just coach."

He wasn't amazing. In both of his Washington seasons, he averaged about 21 PPG on 42% shooting. Before that he was a 30ppg on 50%. That's the equivilant of Kobe going 17ppg on 38% shooting. Though Jordan wasn't working from the post as much, and given his age, it was probably expected. It goes both ways.

He can really improve the bench, and at his age can still play defense.

And since Nash is trying to recruit him here, why not? :P

I like to dip my feet in toilet water & smell them.

He sure is better offensively than Barnes and Metta.
