Grant Hill Won't Sign With Knicks -- Decides To Stay In Phoenix

Grant Hill will not be a member of the New York Knicks. The 39-year-old free-agent forward reportedly agreed today to re-sign with the Phoenix Suns.

AZ Central reports that Hill will stay in Phoenix on a one-year, $6.5 million contract. The Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Spurs and Chicago Bulls were all reportedly in the running for Hill.

Hill would have been reunited with head coach Mike D’Antoni, who coached the Suns when Hill arrived in Phoenix, had he come to New York.

Hill averaged 13.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 80 games for the Suns last season. After injuries wiped out more than half of the potential games Hill could have played in from 2000-2001 to 2005-2006 Hill has missed just three games in the past two seasons.

It isn’t known if Tyson Chandler’s signing with the Knicks impacted their ability to sign Hill, but the Knicks will need to look elsewhere for front-line help behind Carmelo Anthony.
