Default Grant Hill to Clippers

Grant Hill will sign with the Clippers. Looks like the Clippers will have a great roster this coming season after adding Jamal Crawford, Lamar Odom, Grant Hill and resigning Billups.

Good to see. Clips being my second favorite team I am happy with their moves this year...

Wish I could say the same for my #1 favorite team

this definitely caught me off guard in a very good way of course. As a Clippers fan from the 90's i really imagined but never believed i would realistically see a day where a FA chose the Clippers over the Lakers for the same amount of money.

Times are changing baby!!! Clippers look like the new Mavs but with young talent as well as the veteran help!

Clippers are shaping up very nicely. I am just thankful that Hill is not going to be a Laker, but I am fine with him being a Clipper.

Not sure what the big deal is. Hill is 40 years old, doubt he'll be able to add much of anything next season

Great move, even if he doesnt do much on the court, he will help in that locker room. Gonna be fun to watch the battle of LA this year.

I am surprised to see him go to the Clippers and not the Lakers.

He adds veteranship and a great basketball IQ. He also has a great jumper and can still ball. Personally I think it is a great pickup.

Still able to give a handful of productive minutes. Surprised he is not more interested in winning a title at this point though.

that is true, but how often does that work?

so many teams have grabbed one of the aging veterans and it hasn't helped at all

It's cool that Lakers didn't get him, they reportedly signing Jamison
and Jordan Hill needs to be there next priority.

That's just retarded to compare Grant Hill to Juwan Howard. Grant Hill has always contributed to every team he has been a part of, Juwan Howard, has never contributed at a 1/10th of what Grant Hill has done.

Kurt Thomas is in on that one too, lol.

I just hope they make a Hill Auto with him in a Clipps uni, that would be a sweet addition to the collection.
