Grant Hill may be 39 years old and coming off a season
where he missed a significant amount of time due to a torn
meniscus, but that does not mean he plans on hanging up
his sneakers for good.
According to reports, Hill
flew to Germany for platelet-enrichment treatment on his
knee. The procedure is the same one Lakers star Kobe
Bryant underwent last year, and one he credits for having
an excellent season.
That, in itself, would be good news for the Suns. Hill is
one of the game’s better defenders, and having him healthy
would certainly be a good thing.
However, ESPN NBA insider Ric Bucher says that while Hill
plans on playing next year, there is no guarantee it will
be for the Suns.
Grant Hill just had
platelet-enrichment procedure on his knee that Kobe had.
Now on Lakers’ wish list (Phx, Tor, NYK also).

A healthy Grant Hill would be of help to pretty much any
team, especially one that fancies itself a contender.
And while Steve Nash’s free agency has dominated the
headlines in the Valley, he’s apparently not the only
veteran who could be leaving this summer.
