Miami Heat Free Agency 2012: South Florida A Possible Destination for Grant Hill

Free agent forward Grant Hill, who spent the last five seasons with the Phoenix Suns, has expressed interest in joining the Miami Heat, according to NBA.com's David Aldrige.

Hill, who turns 40 in November, is also reportedly considering signing with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Western Conference champions, the Oklahoma City Thunder, as he pursues an NBA title. Last week, reports indicated that Hill would either join the Lakers or retire, after teammate Steve Nash was traded to L.A., signing a three-year deal, Since, it appears as if he has opened up the process, considering both the Heat and Thunder, while he still continues to contemplate retirement. Per Aldridge:

The Lakers emerged as a strong favorite for Hill after they agreed to terms with the Suns last week on a sign-and-trade deal that will send Steve Nash to the Lakers after the end of the July Moratorium on the 11th for four Draft picks and $3 million. But Hill is looking at the Heat and Thunder as well.

Last season, Hill averaged 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 28 minutes per game with the Suns.
