Grant Hill reportedly has interest from the Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder and Los Angeles Lakers, according to David Aldridge of

Each team has indicated an interest in the veteran, whose defensive skills and leadership are still strong. It is not known if Miami’s interest in Hill was at all affected by its agreement last week to sign guard Ray Allen from the Celtics.

Once Steve Nash indicated he would sign with the Lakers, Hill, 39, had reportedly said he would either follow Nash to Los Angeles or retire, but Alridge said in the report that he is now adding the Heat and Thunder to that short list.

In 49 games for the Suns last season, Hill averaged 10.2 points and 3.5 rebounds in 28 minutes.
