Pelicans' Solomon Hill: Could see some time at power forward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pelicans GM Dell Demps said Friday that Hill could see some time at power forward during the upcoming season, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

After inking a four-year, $50 million deal with the Pelicans on the first day of free agency, Hill is the leading contender to start at small forward, but with the team having Lance Stephenson, Dante Cunningham and Alonzo Gee on hand as depth at the position, Hill may see additional usage in the frontcourt. Any time he gets at power forward would likely be minimal, however, as All-Star Anthony Davis is the starter at that spot, while Terrence Jones looks to be first in line for minutes behind him.

Pelicans' Solomon Hill: Signing with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hill has agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract with the Pelicans, The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Hill's $2.3 million team option was declined by the Pacers earlier this offseason, but now he'll earn an average of $13 million per season in New Orleans. Only 25 years old, the former first-rounder showed the ability to play both small forward and power forward last season, which should allow him to help the Pelicans replace free agent Ryan Anderson. After losing minutes during the regular season, Hill garnered added run during Indiana's seven-game postseason series against Toronto, averaging 7.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.6 three-pointers in 28.3 minutes per game, and will look to make a similar impact with a more significant role in his new setting.

Pacers' Solomon Hill: To become unrestricted free agent
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Pacers have decided not to exercise Hill's $2.3 million team option for the 2016-17 season, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer, Wheat Hotchkiss of Pacers.com reports.

On the same day the team announced coach Frank Vogel wouldn't return, President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird revealed that Hill also wouldn't be brought back. The forward started 78 games in 2014-15, but sunk back into a reduced role off the bench for much of this past season, appearing in 59 games and averaging just 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds in 14.7 minutes. While the numbers aren't eye-popping, Hill still shot nearly 45 percent from the floor, and is a capable defender who's only 25 years old. Hill figures to fetch interest as a lower-tier free agent, as many teams likely see him as a potential rotational forward off the bench.

Pacers' Solomon Hill: Scores 11 points in 30 minutes off bench during Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hill had 11 points (3-4 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and six rebounds in 30 minutes during the Pacers' 102-99 Game 5 loss to the Raptors on Tuesday.

Hill nearly sent the contest to overtime, but his potential game-tying three-pointer was released a hair late upon further review. Despite being denied the three points, Hill has been quite serviceable off the bench through the first five games of the series, averaging 8.2 points, four rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers, and 1.4 assists in 27.8 minutes.

Pacers' Solomon Hill: Hits career-high seven threes in start during Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Solomon Hill tallied 25 points (8-15 FG, 7-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and four steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Bucks.

Hill shined in a starting role during the Indiana Pacers regular season finale, scoring a season-high in points and setting a career-high with seven triples. Indiana was resting four of their starters after securing a seventh seed, paving the way for the third-year forward's impressive shooting performance. However, he'll see his role return to normal as the Pacers resume play in the postseason.
