The Minnesota Timberwolves are adding yet another frontcourt player. They have agreed to sign Jordan Hill to a two-year, $8 million contract, according to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski.
The big man is the third Hill to leave the Indiana Pacers this summer -- George Hill was traded to the Utah Jazz and Solomon Hill signed with the New Orleans Pelicans. Unlike those two, Jordan Hill was out of Indiana's rotation at the end of the season.
It is unlikely that Hill will have guaranteed minutes in Minnesota, either. The Wolves presumably signed Cole Aldrich to be the first big man off the bench behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng. Nemanja Bjelica is still there for floor spacing, and Minnesota has Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic and Adreian Payne on the roster for now as well.
If Hill ends up being in the rotation, it will be because of his athleticism and rebounding. He has spent the last couple of years of his career trying to become a reliable mid-range jump shooter, too.
