PHOENIX (AP) -The Phoenix Suns on Wednesday introduced Grant Hill as their newest member, signing a free agent they hope will be the missing piece in the quest for their first NBA title.
The 6-foot-8 forward agreed to a two-year deal worth about $1.8 million for the first year, with a second-year player option for about $2 million.
Hill comes to Phoenix from Orlando, where he spent seven frustrating years. Hobbled mostly by ankle injuries, Hill played in about a third of the Magic's regular-season games after signing a seven-year, $93 million contract.
Last season, though, Hill played in 65 games, averaging 14.4 points, 2.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds. His production and hustle gave the Suns hope that he can contribute to their up-tempo attack.
Hill, who turns 35 in October, is a seven-time NBA All-Star. He played on two NCAA championship teams at Duke.
In another move, the Suns completed the trade that sent forward James Jones and the draft rights to Spanish guard Rudy Fernandez, the 24th overall pick in the NBA draft, to Portland for $3 million.
