Hill was waived by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday as the team tries to save money ahead of free agency. The Timberwolves signed Hill to a two-year contract last season, but only the first year was guaranteed. He was slated to make $4.18 million next season and the team faced a Friday deadline to decide on retaining Hill.
The Scoop: Hill only played seven games last season and averaged 1.7 points and two rebounds. Since entering the league as a first-round pick of the New York Knicks in 2009, Hill has career averages of 7.9 points and 5.8 rebounds in 409 regular-season games with the Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers and Timberwolves.
