Thunder Free Agency 2012: Grant Hill Considering OKC As Possible Destination

The 2012 NBA offseason continues to be full of twists and turns. The Oklahoma City Thunder are attempting to build an even stronger team to capitalize on their 2012 NBA Finals run and may be looking to pick up some big free agents.

David Aldridge of NBA.com's Hang Time Blog reports that Phoenix Suns small forward Grant Hill is considering the Thunder as a possible destination, along with the Miami Heat and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Reports Tuesday indicated that Hill has decided either to play for the Lakers or retire. But the source strongly indicated that Hill has not limited himself to Los Angeles as he makes up his mind. The Lakers emerged as a strong favorite for Hill after they agreed to terms with the Suns last week on a sign-and-trade deal that will send Steve Nash to the Lakers after the end of the July Moratorium on the 11th for four Draft picks and $3 million. But Hill is looking at the Heat and Thunder as well.

The 39-year-old veteran averaged 10.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in Phoenix last season.
