Wednesday December 7th, 2011

As NBA training camp is growing closer, NBA veteran Grant Hill may be leaning toward joining the New York Knicks rather than returning to the Phoenix Suns, according to the New York Post.

The Knicks previously attempted to woo Hill away from the desert with a contract offer in 2009, however the former All-Star chose to stay with the Phoenix Suns at the time. However, this time the Knicks appear to be primed for a major playoff run after acquiring All-Stars Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony last season. While the  club failed to make it out of the first round of the playoffs last year, it is believed with their stars fully healthy, and a full season to come together, they could content for an Eastern Conference title.

The Phoenix Suns remain in the picture for Hill as do the Chicago Bulls and the Los Angeles Clippers.
