Larry Bird issued a statement regarding the arrest of Jordan Hill on Friday for allegedly driving 107 MPH on the highway.
"We have been informed Jordan was arrested for allegedly reckless driving in Atlanta, Georgia," Bird said. "It is obvious we don't condone this. We will address this with Jordan. This is a major concern of safety, not just for Jordan, but for others." It's unclear at this point if Hill will be in any trouble with the league for the incident, but we will update this story once more details are known. Aug 1 - 11:05 AM

Jordan Hill was arrested on Friday for reckless driving.

He was allegedly driving 107 MPH on the highway and was pulled over. The Pacers made a statement and said they will address the situation with Hill. Assuming this is only a speeding violation, Hill likely won't face a suspension to start the year. He is the favorite to start at center.

Jordan Hill took a bit of a shot at Kobe Bryant when asked what it was like to be a Laker.

Speaking with reporters in Indiana, Hill was asked what it was like to be a Laker and had a very succinct answer. "All you hear is Kobe’s mouth," the new Pacer said. While this will make for an interest sub-plot when the Pacers play the Lakers, Hill will be an interesting late-round target in fantasy drafts as he should see plenty of minutes if he's able to secure a starting role for Indiana.
Jul 16 - 1:38 PM

Jordan Hill officially signed his one-year, $5 million deal with the Pacers on Tuesday.

Hill could be the starting power forward for the Pacers, and then slide over to the center spot when Paul George moves to the power forward position. Larry Bird has said that George will spend a lot of time at power forward, and that Myles Turner will be playing a lot of minutes, so it sounds like Hill will see close to last season's averages of 26.8 minutes per game. Hill was in an ideal situation with the tanking Lakers last season, and still only managed to chip in late-round value, so he's not a very exciting guy to target on draft day.

Jordan Hill has agreed to sign with the Indiana Pacers.

Hill could start at center for the Pacers, but it's hard to see him improving much upon last year's averages of 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game on 45.9 percent shooting from the field. Hill has sputtered towards the end of the season two years in a row now, and his lack of contributions to the defensive categories (0.5 steals and 0.7 blocks per game) leave a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective. He's not worth much more than a late-round pick in standard leagues.

The Mavericks may look to sign unrestricted free agent Jordan Hill if they miss out on DeAndre Jordan.

Hill will likely be a third-option for Dallas if they miss out on Jordan, and are also unable to orchestrate a sign-and-trade for Roy Hibbert. He averaged 12.0 points, 7.9 rebounds and 0.7 blocks with the Lakers last season, and it's unlikely he'd be much better than that with the Mavs. He's not much more than a low-end option in deep leagues.
Jul 2 - 5:32 PM

The Lakers have told Jordan Hill they will not pick up his $9 million team option for next season.

He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Hill did have a productive 2014-15, averaging 12.0 points, 7.9 boards and 0.7 blocks. He'll likely be a backup plan for teams missing out on the big free agents.
Jun 29 - 4:21 PM

The Lakers are reportedly unlikely to pick up their option on Jordan Hill for the 2015-16 season.

While Hill did post career-highs during the 2014-15 season, averaging 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game, his play fizzled as the year went on and he didn't really live up to the hype. The Lakers own the No. 2 overall selection, and they will likely be drafting Jahlil Okafor, so allowing Hill to walk would not only clear up $9 million in cap space, it would also open up a lot of opportunity for their draft selection. It's unclear where Hill would wind up during free agency, but it's unlikely he'd land in a situation much better than last year, so his numbers are due to take a sizable hit outside of Los Angeles.
Jun 19 - 1:34 PM

The Lakers are unsure if they will exercise Jordan Hill's $9 million team option for next season, but Hill hopes to remain in Los Angeles.

"It’s going to be a big offseason for the Lakers," Hill said. "It’s up in the air right now. They don’t know what’s going to happen. I have to stay positive and hope everything will fall into plan." Hill averaged a respectable 12.0 points, 7.9 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.7 blocks per game this season while shooting 46 percent from the field, but he lost a lot of steam as the season progressed and often appeared fatigued. The Lakers have big plans this offseason via the draft and free agency, so it's certainly possible that they let Hill hit the open market.
Apr 22 - 9:23 AM

Jordan Hill stated during his exit interview that he hopes to expand his range during the offseason, and he would like to become a threat from 3-point range.

Hill made some major improvements this season, and he posted career-highs in points (12.0) and rebounds (7.9). However, the limited contributions to the defensive categories (0.5 steals and 0.7 blocks per game) limited him to just low-end value in standard leagues. Hill also admitted that the increased role and minutes led to some fatigue, which took away from his rebounding energy, but he hopes to come into next season more prepared to play big minutes. Hill may or may not be with the Lakers next season, but he's a guy that needs to be on a bad team to provide meaningful statistics.
Apr 16 - 7:43 PM

Jordan Hill started on Monday against the Kings, scoring 18 points on 9-of-19 shooting with six rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes.

Hill did not have a steal or block and could be found attempting one-legged Dirks last night. He's a DNP-risk and it doesn't seem like the Lakers are thrilled with his approach to the game this season, but if he's starting against the Kings he should probably be in most lineups on Wednesday.
Apr 14 - 4:34 AM

Jordan Hill will start on Monday against the Kings.

There was a late change because Ed Davis was listed as the starter two minutes ago. Adjust accordingly. Hill joins Jordan Clarkson, Jabari Brown, Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black.
Apr 13 - 10:10 PM

Byron Scott wants Jordan Hill to change his offseason routine in order to avoid crashing-and-burning during the season.

In a problem that has plagued Hill for several years running, he noticeably runs out of gas long before the 82-game schedule has expired. "I don’t think he did that this summer to get ready for this season," Scott said. "He’s got to train like he’s going to play for 48 minutes every single night." Hill has also developed a tendency to fall in love with his jumper, and that's something he has to fix as well. Despite reports to the contrary, it's nowhere near a certainty that Hill returns to Los Angeles next season.
Apr 13 - 11:15 AM

Jordan Hill picked up another DNP-CD vs. the Clippers on Tuesday.

The timing could be telling, as Scott has been ranting about his team's lack of effort and he singled out Hill as a primary culprit. "I got a sense of a whole lot of [players] I wouldn't want to be in a fox hole with," Scott said after Monday's practice. "I think they'd end up shooting me in the back. So I've got a pretty good sense of the guys that I think are going to be around, that we will build around." L.A. only has a handful of players under contract for 2015-16, including a $9 million team option for Hill.

Jordan Hill played 13 minutes off the Lakers' bench on Sunday and had two points on 1-of-6 shooting, three rebounds and one assist.

The streak of DNPs has ended but he's remained a liability since rejoining the rotation, and will remain so while coming off the bench behind Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly. The Lakers hold a $9 million team option for Hill next season and it seems probable that they'll keep him around despite his late-season disappearance.
