The Hornets have shown interest in free agent Jordan Hill.
Hill is coming off an extremely disappointing 2016-17 campaign. He appeared in only seven games for Minnesota, averaging 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds. However, back in 2015-16, Hill averaged 8.8 points and 6.2 boards in 20.7 minutes over 73 games for the Pacers. The Hornets have one roster spot remaining and may be willing to offer Hill the veteran's minimum in the hopes he can bounce back. Jul 13 - 11:57 AM

The Timberwolves have waived Jordan Hill.

Hill only managed to get on the court a total of seven times for the Wolves last season, so it's not surprising at all to see the two sides part ways. Hill is a capable backup at the NBA level, but it's unlikely he'll find himself in a situation where he holds legitimate fantasy value.
Jun 26 - 5:14 PM

Jordan Hill was the first player off Minnesota's bench on Sunday, finishing with four points on 2-of-7 shooting, six rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes.

Hill hadn't played since Dec. 11 and he logged 16 minutes all season prior to tonight, but he entered the game early with Gorgui Dieng in some foul trouble. We'll keep an eye on his role over the next few games, but most standard-league owners should continue to ignore him.

Jordan Hill has officially signed with the Wolves.

It's a two-year, $8 million deal, but Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders is reporting that the second year isn't guaranteed. The Wolves also signed Cole Aldrich this summer, so there won't be much playing time available behind Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns.

Jordan Hill has agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with the Wolves.

Coach Tom Thibodeau is getting some depth up front. Hill didn't have a great year with the Pacers last season, averaging just 8.8 points and 6.2 boards. He also basically fell out of the rotation for the postseason. Hill won't have a fantasy impact.

Jordan Hill is on the Spurs' radar.

There are still a handful of bigs and the Spurs will likely wait to see what happens with guys like Pau Gasol. Hill will turn 29 years old this month and is coming off a down year. Plus, his bad back earlier in his career could resurface.

The Pacers likely won't re-sign Jordan Hill this summer.

Hill fell out of the rotation down the stretch and was stuck behind Ian Mahinmi and Myles Turner on the depth chart. A move away from Indiana would likely be a good thing for his fantasy value, but it all depends on where he lands in free agency. Hill averaged 8.8 points, 6.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks in 20.7 minutes per game for the Pacers this season.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel hinted that Jordan Hill will not be in the rotation for Game 4 on Saturday.

"Jordan's capable but we're playing the guys we think we have the best chance to win with," Vogel said. The Pacers are starting Myles Turner next to Ian Mahinmi for Game 4, but this means that Lavoy Allen will likely be the primary big off the bench. Hill has yet to play in the playoffs.

Jordan Hill is hopeful to get some minutes in Game 4 on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

"Like I said, man, it’s whatever Frank [Vogel] feels is the best way to go to get these wins and to get better and try to succeed to the second round," Hill said. "You’ve just got to follow. He is the coach, and you just got to respect him." Hill hasn't played yet in this series, but he could enter the rotation on Saturday because the Pacers' frontcourt has struggled to produce. With Ian Mahinmi (back) ailing and Lavoy Allen not doing anything, Hill getting some minutes would make a lot of sense.

Jordan Hill returned to the Pacers' rotation on Wednesday with six points, two boards, one assist and one steal in nine bench minutes.

Hill got in because both Ian Mahinmi and Myles Turner got into early foul trouble, so this isn't likely to have any repercussions down the stretch.

Jordan Hill may not be in the rotation on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

Lavoy Allen and Ian Mahinmi will start in the frontcourt on Saturday, while Myles Turner will get the nod as the backup center over Hill. In case it's not obvious, Hill's owners can move on if they haven't already.

Jordan Hill scored four points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 15 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

He had a personal issue and missed some time with the team. Hill won't have much value while Ian Mahinmi and Myles Turner are healthy.
Thu, Mar 24, 2016 09:58:00 PM

Jordan Hill (personal) is probable for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

While it's good news for the Pacers to have Hill available, he's only averaging 7.6 points in 20.0 minutes over the Pacers last five games. Fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to look elsewhere for help.

Jordan Hill scored two points with two rebounds in eight minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

There was no doubt he was going to lose playing time and he lost even more than expected. Hill is only worth owning in deep leagues.
Sat, Mar 19, 2016 10:38:00 PM

Jordan Hill will come off the bench on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

He played 37 minutes in Ian Mahinmi's (back) absence on Thursday and scored 11 points with six boards and three blocks, but he's safe to drop in most leagues with Mahinmi back in the starting five.
