   An Unnecessarily Exhaustive Guide To The NBA Prospects Of The Unsigned NBA Draft Picks

Kyle Hill (44th pick, 2001)

- Last season, Hill made the strange midseason leap from being a bit-part player on a LEB Gold team (averaging 5.9ppg for Alicante) to a starter on an Adriatic League team (Hemofarm). That can't have been easy to achieve. This season, however, he has not played.

Hill, a 31 year old 6'2 guard, was drafted on account of his 23.8ppg scoring average in his senior season for Eastern Illinois that ranked third in the nation, alongside 5 rebounds and 4 assists. His professional career started well with some good Euroleague showings, and a couple of strong years in France, with some good ULEB Cup and Serie A time in there too. However, things have started to slow down for Kyle now. He's had a solid career as a good European guard, but the NBA was always a long shot, even after being drafted. It's a long shot that is now long since shot.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 30

- Kyle Hill

Hill started the season with Meridiano Alicante, playing his second season for the ACB team that he had helped win promotion from the LEB Gold last year. However, he averaged only 5.9 points in 17.0 minutes per game, and left the team when Serkan Erdogan was brought in last month, moving to Serbia to play for Hemofarm. In his 2 games for Hemofarm so far, Hill has totalled 48 minutes, 2 points and 3 fouls.

Hill was drafted out of Eastern Illinois by the Mavericks in 2001 with a pick that they had received in 2000 from the Rockets. Houston traded the rights to Eduardo Najera and a 2001 second (Hill) to Dallas in exchange for the rights to Dan Langhi. Dallas then traded those rights back to Houston in 2001 as a small part of the multi player Glen Rice/Shandon Anderson deal that saw Dallas trading Hill's rights to Houston and Howard Eisley to New York in exchange for Muggsy Bogues, who never played for the team. It was a salary dump of Eisley's $41 million salary, but why Dallas had taken on that salary only one year before is a mystery.
