This is the way NBA Free Agency works: rumors spread like wildfire, and trades happen quietly and sneak upon you like a ninja. Now, that it’s confirmed that Steve Nash will be a Laker it seems he wants to take someone with him.
No, not the medical staff, but Grant Hill as being reported by ESPN.
Sources told ESPN.com that Nash will try to convince longtime teammate Grant Hill, one of his closest friends in the game, to join him with the Lakers. ESPN The Magazine’s Ric Bucher reported over the weekend the Lakers were one of four teams (along with Toronto, New York and Phoenix) in the running for Hill after the 39-year-old’s recent trip to Germany to undergo the same platelet-enrichment treatment on his knee that Bryant credited for his rejuvenated knee last season.
