Ok, I am not saying that Jordan Hill may not turn out to be a decent player in this league, but is he projected to be so good that he is worth us not being major players in the 2010 FA market?
It boils down to is he better than any player we could potentially sign this summer? I dont see it!
Look we dont know how true the reports were that we had an opportunity to dump Jefferies to Sac. last year, but these reports seem pretty accurate this year and Hill has not showed me he is worth us not getting some more cap room.
You know what? I could even understand if the unprotected 2012 pick was the snag more than Jordan Hill being the hold up! The unprotected pick in 2012 has more potential!
And I kinda like Hill, but I dont see an All Star in him!
Jordan Hill and Jefferies pretty much represent what you could pay Lee next year...... meaning you could resign Lee for 10 million and then add a player like Joe Johnson for14 million next year and have could still have up to 13 million dollars left to play with!
Look I am not totally sold on the swapping of picks and the 2012 unprotected pick, so again I could understand that being the hold up.... but I do know that I would personally fly Hill to Houston -when I get my G-6 out the shop LOL- to make this deal work.
