Grant Hill has decided to re-sign with Phoenix, and a large part of the decision is based on the belief that Steve Nash is close to reaching an agreement on a contract extension, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
Hill has begun telling associates he’s staying with the Suns.
Phoenix owner Robert Sarver, general manager Steve Kerr and coach Alvin
Gentry met with Hill on Wednesday night and Thursday morning in Florida.
The Suns will also sign free agent Channing Frye to a two-year deal for $3.8 million, sources said. The second season is at Frye’s option.
The New York Knicks
reportedly offered Hill the choice of a one-year, $5 million deal or a
three-year, $10 million contract. Hill also had an offer from the Boston Celtics.Nevertheless, he’s believed to be comfortable with the direction of the Suns to re-sign there.
The terms of the Nash extension are unclear, although one source believes it is a three-year deal worth about $33 million.
Congrats Grant. You and Nash can lead the Suns to 45-win season.
Who's next on the list Danny?
Update: Spears reports Hill received a two-year deal with the Suns worth $3 million in the
first year and a second-year player option for $3.24 million.
