Hill Leads a wave of seasoned vets in free agency

With the free-agent frenzy looming, all sorts of movement will start Dec. 9th. Teams will be looking to add scorers, rebounders, and defenders as other assortments of skill sets that will help them get to the next level.

One thing teams can't ignore is the need for seasoned vets who have been through the rigors of the NBA with great frequency. Having that kind of experience is an invaluable asset  that can be shared with the young bucks on NBA teams.

With many vets out there, let's explore some of the more talented near 40-year-old bunch still lingering around, continuing their dominance amongst the best the league has to offer.  


Grant Hill

The 39-year-old seems to have found the fountain of youth and his play in recent years has gone very well. Hill's skill set has been steady with ball handling and finishing skills being his best assets.

His shooting has expanded out to the three-point line (40 percent over last two years) as well as his overall efficiency as a player. Past ankle woes seem to be well behind him and his first step is still very quick.

Hill has stayed in such good shape over the years that at times, he looks like the younger player on the court. He will make some team very happy when he chooses his next work destination. 


Potential teams: Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, L.A. Lakers, New York Knicks and Miami Heat
