The Brooklyn Nets are doing what they can to secure a trade for Los Angeles Lakers power forward Jordan Hill, but the Cleveland Cavaliers want in.
That’s the word from Marc Stein of ESPN who says the Cavs are attempting to trade for Hill before the Nets complete a deal with the Lakers.
Hearing now that Cavs have strongly emerged as team trying to trump BKN and acquire Jordan Hill from Lakers. Looks like Cavs & Nets for Hill
It’s a bit of an odd fit for the Cavaliers given Hill isn’t really a center and Cleveland has multiple lengthy power forward types.
That said, Hill is a free agent at season and is relatively cheap and shouldn’t cost the Cavaliers much of anything.
It’s going to be difficult for Cleveland to beat the Nets offer of a disabled player exception though considering the Lakers aren’t interested in taking any salary back.
That said, it appears to be down to a two-team race for Hill moving forward.
