Perhaps the best rebounder in the NBA today, Jordan Hill is set to become a free agent. He has been subject to Mike D'Antoni's inconsistent lineups, which has somewhat overshadowed the fantastic outings he has had over the past couple of seasons. Offense is still a work in progress, but Hill has recorded multiple 20-point and 15-rebound games when given the opportunity. Therefore, he will be a highly pursued player this offseason.

After a failed Samuel Dalembert experiment, the Dallas Mavericks are in desperate need of a ferocious rebounder to pair alongside Dirk Nowitzki. Hill not only fills this mold, but he is the absolute perfect fit. With ample cap space, expect the Mavericks to inquire about Hill immediately.

With Marcin Gortat being an impending free agent, the Washington Wizards may be forced to look towards an alternate route if another team chooses to overpay him. Yes, Gortat is a huge piece to Washington's success, but overpaying an older center is simply not worth it right now. As a result, Hill may be the ideal player to take over Gortat's position.

Despite being a beloved teammate, Kendrick Perkins is no longer worth the $ 9 million salary he will be paid next season. Such a substantial amount of money for 3 points and 5 rebounds per game has proven to be a huge detriment to a team with absolutely no help outside their big three. Amnestying Perkins is an option, which would clear sufficient cap space to pursue a player like Hill whose 10 points and 8 rebounds would be extremely valuable.

Any deal including Jordan Hill to the Chicago Bulls is certainly contingent on amnestying Carlos Boozer. With that scenario appearing likely right now, Hill is the ideal candidate to back up Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson on a defensive-minded team. Bulls fans love players who do the small things, Noah being the perfect example of this. Chicago would certainly be a place where Hill's skills will be highly appreciated.

Finally, we reach the Los Angeles Lakers who must re-sign Hill at all costs. Aside from being a fan favorite, Hill has really put his name on the radar during his tenure with the team. His tremendous effort night in and night out is something Los Angeles cannot afford to lose. A new coach who utilizes Hill to his fullest can possibly turn him into one of the league's best all-around centers. Remember he is still young with tons of potential.
