Hill Chooses Suns Over Celtics

Grant Hill Will Not Be Wearing Green In '09

The Globe is reporting that Grant Hill has decided to stick with the Phoenix Suns. The Celtics, along with the Knicks, were also heavily pursuing the veteran forward. The deal is reported to be a two year contract worth about $3 million a year, with the second year being a player option for Hill. The Celtics could only offer Hill the LLE worth about $1.9 million a year.

In the end, it doesn’t appear Hill’s decision was based on money, but rather the fact that longtime teammate and friend, Steve Nash, is close to signing an extension with the Suns.

This decision puts the Celtics back at the drawing board when it comes to finding a veteran wing player to spell Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. The most notable remaining options are (in no particular order): Marquis Daniels, Matt Barnes, Ime Udoku, Jerry Stackhouse, Bruce Bowen, Rashad McCants, and Linus Keiza.

Youngster wing players, Bill Walker and JR Giddens, are widely considered to be too underdeveloped to play meaningful minutes on a championship contending squad.
