Jordan Hill PF/C LAL 19 Days

Hill is likely to begin training camp as the starting center, although no official announcement has been made yet, reports.

Coach Byron Scott has been praising Hill this offseason and it's no real surprise that he will get the first crack at the starting job over Ed Davis and Robert Sacre. Down the stretch last season, Hill racked up five double-doubles in the last eight games and has upside as a fantasy option provided he can stay healthy.

Hill will play good minutes at center this season amid the morass of frontcourt players the Lakers have accumulated this offseason, head coach Byron Scott stated on the Lakers' official Twitter account.

Hill was projected to be the Lakers' starting center, but it's good to hear it come from someone within the organization. Scott also mentioned that newcomer Ed Davis would see time at the five, presumably backing up Hill. Last season, in former coach Mike D'Antoni's offense, Hill put up impressive per-36 minutes stats of 16.7 points and 12.8 rebounds and he is on the verge of a breakout campaign in 2014-15.

Jordan Hill has agreed to a two-year, $18 million deal with the Lakers.

It's a fairly expensive deal at $9 million per, but at least it's just for two seasons. Hill had a tough time staying court last season and his conditioning capped his minutes per game a bit. Still, the Lakers needed size and depth, so it's a good fit. He won't be worth drafting in most leagues.

The Lakers, Mavericks and Rockets are expected to be interested in unrestricted free agent Jordan Hill.

He spent two and a half years with the Rockets and about the same time with the Lakers over the last three seasons. Hill's minutes were held in check due to conditioning and injuries with the Lakers last year and he'll likely remain in the high teens for minutes as a backup big man.

Jordan Hill had 18 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and two blocks on 7-of-13 shooting as the Lakers beat the resting Spurs in Wednesday's finale.

The Lakers weren't very good at tanking over the last week, and got a very balanced attack in the win. Nick Young scored 16, Kendall Marshall had 15 points and 11 assists, Jodie Meeks scored 14, Ryan Kelly scored 12, Wes Johnson had 11 points and 11 rebounds, and Robert Sacre and Jordan Farmar chipped in with 10 a piece. We think we speak for all Lakers fans when we say that it's finally over. Many of these guys came through for fantasy owners tonight, but the minutes were too evenly divided for any of them to really go nuts.

Jordan Hill had easy buckets all night against the Jazz on Monday, finishing with 21 points, six boards and one block in 24 minutes.

The Jazz have been torched by big men all season and Hill kept his momentum going. In his last five, he averaged 16.6 points, 8.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks on 58.7 percent from the field. He'll be a must-start player against the Spurs on Wednesday.

Jordan Hill (migraine) double-doubled with 10 points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes during Sunday's loss to the visiting Grizzlies.

Hill added three assists, one steal and two blocks, and the defensive stats are a nice sight -- even as a starter he's only averaging 0.4 steals and 1.0 blocks this season. With Pau Gasol (vertigo) done for the year and Chris Kaman (calf) questionable to return, Hill should remain a solid option.

Jordan Hill is suffering from a migraine but he's still expected to play on Sunday.

If he is unexpectedly ruled out, Robert Sacre will start for the Lakers' decimated frontcourt. The Lakers' game tips off at 9:30 ET so we won't have to wait long for official confirmation of his status.

Jordan Hill scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting with 12 rebounds, four assists and two steals in the Lakers' 112-95 loss to the Warriors on Friday.

Hill is doing what everybody hoped he might be able to do all season, if not for knee limitations and Mike D'Antoni's magically changing lineups. It looks like he'll be fun to own for the rest of the year, but we'd be lying if we said we're not crossing all sorts of fingers and toes.

Jordan Hill started at center in Friday's loss to the Mavs, scoring 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes.

As long as Pau Gasol (vertigo) appears to be headed toward a shutdown then Hill has a decent shot at being a worthwhile gamble. He's red hot right now so hopefully if you pick him up you haven't missed out on the good stuff.
