In a sign of where we're at with the 2014 NBA Trade Deadline, the big name being thrown around is.... Lakers reserve big man Jordan Hill. Hill was drafted by the Knicks, but quickly fell out of favor with Mike D'Antoni and traded to Houston. This of course meant it got awkward when D'Antoni took over the team last year after Hill had been signed.

With the Lakers looking to cut into their massive luxury tax obligations, Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the price for the hustle junkie is low.

So let's run down the list of teams interested in Hill, according to reports. The Nets, as listed above, plus:

the Suns and Mavericks:

the Cavs:

and the Hawks;

Hill is thought of as a low-impact role player, but he plays extremely hard. Per 36 minutes, he's averaging 15.6 points and 12.9 rebounds on 54 percent shooting with an 18.5 PER. Put him next to a dominant scorer like Nowitzki, or as part of a bruising inside combo with Plumlee in Phoenix, or next to Millsap in Atlanta and you have a definite upgrade. He's a willing defender who just needs help learning a system.

Either way, expect him to find a new zipcode sometime before tomorrow's 3 p.m. deadline. Sporting News reports the Lakers' front office bosses are meeting tonight to discuss deals.
