NBA Rumors: Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers discussing Jordan Hill deal


The Brooklyn Nets are in the process of turning what looked like a very disappointing season around.

The Nets are now 24-27, are currently the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference and are jut 3.5 games behind the Toronto Raptors for the third seed in the east.

The Nets are looking to upgrade their roster and have been discussing a deal for Los Angeles Lakers’ big man Jordan Hill. The Nets would use the Disabled Player Exception they got because of center Brook Lopez’s injury to make the deal happen.

However, any deal involving Hill would cost the Nets quite a lot of money.

 

Hill is averaging 8.5 points and 7.0 rebounds for the Lakers this season.
