Phoenix Suns Appear to be Waiting on Grant Hill

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

The Phoenix Suns are still in search of a general manager. There have been a lot of names thrown about, but the one that seems to be gaining the most steam right now is Grant Hill.

Hill just finished playing for the Los Angeles Clippers recently and I haven’t heard anything about him retiring. I must admit, though, that Hill should probably do that being that he played in just 29 games this season and is now 40-years-old. I think that is the reason why this search is still going on.

Hill averaged just 3.2 points a game for the Clippers this season as the oldest player in the NBA. It has been a great career for him with seven All-Star appearances, but he is best suited to move into the front office now. Phoenix needs all the help that they can get and if they can get Hill to retire and take the job, you have someone who just finished their career and knows the talent out there.

There are a lot of free agents who will be available this offseason and while Phoenix likely won’t be in play for many of the top stars, there are many second-tier players that could help. This is where Hill can come in with his personality and reputation around the NBA.

Phoenix may not get Chris Paul, but should be able to get some good talent. It has been obvious from the start that Hill was the right choice with his experience playing in Phoenix. It is just a matter of getting Hill to retire now so it can happen.
