Jordan Hill will re-sign with the Lakers

The Lakers took another step toward re-tooling their second unit when they agreed with power forward Jordan Hill on a new contract. The deal reportedly is worth a little less than $8 million over two seasons. “Proud to announce Jordan Hill will be returning to the Lakers next season to join Steve Nash in trying to bring a championship to L.A.,” agent Kevin Bradbury wrote on his Twitter account Friday night. Hill averaged 4.7 points and 4.4 rebounds in seven games after the Lakers acquired him for Derek Fisher last season.
