Grant Hill Agrees To Deal With Los Angeles Clippers

The Grant Hill sweepstakes has come to an end as the free agent has reportedly agreed to a new deal with the second team in Hollywood.  The Los Angeles Clippers swooped in and picked up Hill, which should come as a shock considering how late they were to the party.

Everyone and their mother thought Hill was going to end up playing for the Los Angeles Lakers.  Apparently the Clippers had a better deal on the table.  Grant Hill will be counted on to bring a veteran voice to the team, which surprised some people by making the second round of the playoffs last year.

Hill has been remarkable the last couple of years, considering his injury history.  The old man still has some game and has been putting up very solid numbers.  He might fall off without the apparently super human training staff in Phoenix, but this is a solid signing for the Clips.

Grant Hill will make threes, play good defense, and be a good locker room guy.  He is not going to rock the boat, which is perfect for that team.  They have enough weird things happening around them that they need a seemingly normal guy to come in and just be normal.

This move might fly under the radar but it is a very good move for the Clips.  Grant Hill was coveted by a lot of teams and picking him up from right under your rival’s nose is never a bad thing.

Archie Goodwin Hits Epic Game-Winning Three

The Phoenix Suns are legit playing without five or six important members of their rotation currently, so guys who don't normally make the highlight reels are getting an incredible amount of playing time. This is the case for Archie Goodwin, who started at point guard in Brandon Knight's absence and hit this improbable three with time running out to cement a 98-95 win. Things haven't been go swimmingly in Phoenix this season, so it was awesome to see Suns fans and players alike enjoy this hard-fought win.

Rondo Perfectly Guesses Atlanta's Final Play

Say what you will about Rajon Rondo, but there's no way to deny that he's an incredibly smart basketball player. Last evening against the Atlanta Hawks, the Sacramento Kings were up by three points with 1.9 seconds left, and Atlanta had one final possession to tie things up. Rondo immediately recognized the play the Hawks had drawn up and directed DeMarcus Cousins to an empty space on the floor where the Hawks were planning to send a player to take a three. Rondo's smarts made the Hawks botch the play, and the Kings held serve for the win.
