It's been widely reported that Steve Nash wants to recruit Hill to also join forces with the Lakers. Kupchak, puzzled by his request but being the good GM that he is made some calls and got Hill to agree to terms with the Lakers for a 2-year close to $8 million deal today.
Needless to say Nash was ecstatic when he got the call from upper management. He immediately phones (yes I said phones) his former teammate only to realize that Laker Grant Hill was not to be.
In a similar story fans were relieved to hear that the Lakers did not sign 49-year old Jordan.
