Despite Grant Hill’s desire to stay with the Phoenix Suns, it became increasingly clear it was time to move on.
“Sometimes change can be painful but it’s just the reality of sports,” Hill told Arizona Sports 620’s Doug and Wolf Show Friday. “So it’s nobody’s fault. I just think if I am an outsider looking in, it’s just time and its unfortunate, but that’s what it is. That’s the reality of it.”
Hill inked a two-year, $4 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, who now tout a revamped roster that has improved its depth tremendously.
While Suns fans may have been surprised to hear of Hill signing with the Clippers, the veteran forward said he, too, couldn’t have envisioned it happening.
“I’ll say this, as of June 30 I wasn’t necessarily thinking of leaving Phoenix and I wasn’t necessarily thinking about the Clippers,” Hill stated.
While it was a tough decision to leave, Hill is ready to start the next chapter with his new squad.
