The Los Angeles Lakers will now look to add parts around Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash and whoever stays among the Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum big man duo. You have to figure another veteran would help out in a locker room on the older side.
One possibility is Nash's teammate Grant Hill, who as a free agent has previously indicated he'd be strongly inclined to join up with his former teammate. It look as if it'll be the only team he deliberates over this offseason, or otherwise he'll just hang it up.
Grant Hill will either join Steve Nash and the Lakers or retire, a source close to the veteran forward told me.— Frank Isola (@FisolaNYDN) July 5, 2012
It's not likely that Hill will make much money in Los Angeles. The Lakers are pretty much set with regards to their cap space, and Hill would probably have to sign for the veteran's minimum. That being said, he's one of the best-paid players in NBA history, so he's hardly strapped for cash.
