Ranking 5 Best Potential Fits for Jordan Hill Trade with Los Angeles Lakers
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Hill might not be a member of the Los Angeles Lakers for much longer, and a few teams have emerged as the primary candidates who are vying for his services. 

The original rumor, as reported by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, revolved around the Brooklyn Nets, but Dave McMenamin of ESPN Los Angeles revealed that the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks have gotten into the action as well. 

For a full timeline of the rumors, as well as any updates, you can check out John Dorn's article on the subject for Bleacher Report. 

However, in this slideshow, I'm not concerned about the rumors, what teams can offer or how likely the Lakers are to move the big man. 

"Finally, an easy decision for the Los Angeles Lakers to make," writes B/R's Dan Favale, referring to the trade, but things are tougher from the other perspective.

We're talking about how much he helps the other team in the deal, regardless of the ease of acquisition. In other words, how badly is he needed by the Nets, Suns, Mavericks or anyone else who should enter or has entered into the conversation? 

That's the basis of these rankings, which count down toward the No. 1 team that should be making a big play for Hill's services.
