- Jordan Hill - With Yao Ming back, Brad Miller in, and Erick Dampier possibly joining him, Hill might not see the court for a single minute this season. And for that reason, he might get dealt. But whatever happens to him, Hill doesn't need to do a damn thing for the trade with New York to be a huge success. (For the Rockets.)
Hill was just one many rewards the Rockets enjoyed from dealing Tracy McGrady's expiring contract. He's not as good as Carl Landry and probably never will be, but he had a decent rookie year nonetheless. This doesn't mean, though, that he's a viable backup centre option. Even though he's going to play centre for this summer league, I strongly don't recommend he plays there in the NBA. Not at 235lbs.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
