Jordan Hill: 2014 Exit Interview

IMG_0496Jordan Hill appeared in 73 games (32 starts) towards career high averages of 9.7 points and 7.4 rebounds on 54.9 percent field goals in 20.8 minutes. With Pau Gasol and Chris Kaman both sidelined the final eight games of the season, Hill upped his numbers to 16.6 points and 10.1 boards in April, and also posted five double-doubles.



- Opening statement:
“I’m looking forward to the offseason. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m going to continue to work hard and see what my next move is. I wouldn’t mind coming back here. I had a great time with my team and the (coaching) staff. There’s been a lot of ups and downs this season. I’m going to see how this summer pans out.”

- On if his career high in minutes affected him at all on the court:
“It gets tiring sometimes but I still have that adrenaline flowing where I feel invincible out there. I compete and play hard. A lot of people missed time due to injuries. It was definitely a tiring season.”

- On where he could see himself playing:
“I think I’m a good fit for any team – a great rebounder, an energy guy that can go out there and hard 24/7. I can also block shots. I feel I’m a great fit and I would love to play on any team that needs a guy like me.”

- On an ideal situation for him (position, minutes, etc.) in the NBA:
“I think I could be a good power forward, but I know I can play any position. You put me out there and I’ll get something done. Playing 25-27 minutes a game don’t sound so bad. I really showed I can produce when given those types of minutes.”
