Grant Hill To Sign With Suns
In the SOUTH FLORIDA SUN-SENTINEL, Brian Schmitz writes "Grant Hill has decided to sign with the Phoenix Suns to hopefully hitch a ride to an NBA title, leaving the Orlando Magic after seven injury-racked, mostly unfulfilled seasons. He will sign with the Suns for the $1.2 million veteran's exception, which is all Phoenix was willing to offer."

Good for him, maybe he can do what Michael Finley did and sign with a title contender and eventually win it. Maybe he can then retire happy, despite those terrible injury prone seasons.

This is a good move on the Suns part and Hill's part. He knows that he cannot be a superstar anymore, but he still knows that he can come off the bench and be a good roll player, and that's what he's going to be with the Suns. He can still score the ball and give you rebounds so he's a very nice addition to the Suns.

I don't this guarantees the Suns the West title but it helps a lot. Having another veteran leader will be a great benefit to this team. And yes, D'Antoni needs to length his rotation. That's what's been killing the Suns in the playoffs, especially considering the style of ball they play.

It's a nice solid addition.
Hill can add 15-20 mins and more if needed occasionally with smart and reliable play.
I think any team would love to have him on their bench.

it doesn't help with the Suns interior D or rebounding though and that's what kills them.

This is a great move for the Suns. It brings in a guy who can actually excel in this type of system, even though with all the injuries in the past and the age factor. But the reason why I really like this deal is that it brings a real leader to a locker room. To be honest with you i've never seen a real leader on this team. Even with Steve Nash being in the line-up. Grant Hill is a real leader that will help this team in so many ways. This move can honestly put the Suns over the hump and make them real title contenders.
