Lakers decline player option on PF Jordan Hill


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/29/2015) As expected, the Lakers will not pick up the player option on power forward Jordan Hill, making him a free agent, per the Sporting News

Hill was scheduled to make $9 million this season, which would have been a major deterrant as the Lakers try to clear cap space to sign a marquee free agent. 

Hill, 28, averaged 12 points and 7.9 rebounds in 57 games this season.


Report: Lakers unlikely to pick up option on F Jordan Hill


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/19/2015) The Lakers are planning to be big players during free agency this offseason, but in order to do that they have to free up a large amount of cap space.

As a result, the Lakers are unlikely to pick up a team option on forward Jordan Hill, sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Lakers have until June 30 to make a decision on the $9 million they would owe Hill for next season. If they choose to not pick up the option, Hill would become a free agent this offseason.

Hill, 28, averaged 12 points and 7.9 rebounds in 57 games this season.


Lakers undecided on free agents Hill, Johnson


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/22/2015) The Lakers have a lot of offseason issues to address and two of them revolve around forward Jordan Hill and guard Wesley Johnson, both of whom will be free agents, per the Daily News

Hill averaged 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds last season, but appeared to grow weaker as the season went on, unable to grab a bigger role for a team with plenty of minutes to go around. 

"The first month, I was showing the energy," Hill said. "But it was the first time having all these minutes on my hands. I started feeling myself going down and feeling fatigued. It wasn't something I was used to."

Johnson, who averaged 9.9 points and showed a willingness to play different positions, has been too inconsistent for Lakers' brass to make a full commitment. 


Jordan Hill hopes to return to Lakers next season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Lakers forward Jordan Hill said it's 'up in the air' as to whether the Lakers will exercise the team's $9 million team option on his contract next season, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.

While Hill is uncertain over what will happen with the option, his preference is to return to the Lakers, reports BasketballInsiders.com.

Hill admitted that he was not ready to play a larger role this season, which led to a decrease in energy and rebounding. He added that he plans to work on his 3-point shooting in the offseason.


Report: Lakers leaning toward keeping Jordan Hill next season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2015) With the Lakers holding a team option on forward Jordan Hill's contract for next season, the team is increasingly likely to pick up the $9 million option, sources told SportingNews.com.

In 66 games this season, Hill is averaging 12.3 points and 8.2 rebounds.


Lakers coach Byron Scott says Jordan Hill can 'play harder'


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2015) Although Lakers coach Byron Scott praised forward Jordan Hill's effort and ability during Sunday's loss to the Nets, Scott said Hill could still reach another intensity level, reports the Los Angeles Daily News.

"I still think he can play harder," Scott said. "That's one thing I'm a little disappointed in. From last year on the outside looking in, I thought he was a real energy guy. I don't think he is that right now. But he has to get to that point."

Hill sat out the previous three games as a healthy scratch to give younger players more of an opportunity and Scott said Hill was one of the few players to play well Sunday.

"Without him [Sunday], we probably don't even get this close," Scott said.
