Could GHill's Future Be With Pistons, Wiz, Mavs or Rockets? Reunion with T-Mac?
Among the teams that Grant could consider:
Houston: How about Hill-Tracy McGrady II? They never really got to play together in Orlando because of Hill's injuries. T-Mac and Yao need a third scorer, and Hill would fit the bill starting ahead of Dukie Shane Battier. Battier and Hill would be a terrific combination of offensive firepower and defense.
Dallas: Owner Mark Cuban always has beeen a Hill fan. With his team getting upset early, Cuban likely will be looking for a point guard and another veteran to help out MVP Dirk Nowitzki.
Washington: The Wizards you say? Hill would be returning to his old stomping grounds near Maryland and would be closer to his mother and father. He has an affinity for the city, recenting introducing presidential candidate Barack Obama at a D.C. fundraiser. A lineup of Gilbert Arenas, Caron Butler, Atawn Jamison and Hill would be formidable --- and give them depth. Hmmm. Grant Hill providing injury protection?
Detroit: Well, this would be the most obvious choice for Grant, a Motown homecoming. The fans still adore him, largely because the Pistons' sign-and-trade deal in 2000 handed them Ben Wallace and, later, a title. The Pistons could strengthen their bench, pairing Hill with Antonio McDyess.
Other possible suitors for Hill: Toronto (Grant's wife is Canadian; OK, it's a stretch); Boston (he's tight with Doc Rivers, who needs veterans desperately); Miami (could help take some of the load off D-Wade) and San Antonio (the Spurs usually land a quality player who wants to play with Tim Duncan).
Then again, don't rule out ABC, TNT or ESPN competing for Grant.
