Sources tell the Orlando Sentinel that Magic officials have interest in former NBA All-Star and former Magic player Grant Hill to work as president of basketball operations. But it’s unclear if Hill has interest in the job. Joining the Magic would require Hill to divest his small ownership stake in the Atlanta Hawks. If Hill doesn’t have interest, candidates for the general manager job likely would include Detroit Pistons associate general manager and former Magic player Pat Garrity and Golden State Warriors assistant general manager Travis Schlenk.
Storyline: Grant Hill to Magic?
What do you see less of? Grant Hill: There’s less of an emphasis on playing post-up, big guys having the ball down low, and that’s kind of the trend. That’s where the game is going. The needle has been moved some since I retired three years ago, and that’s OK. The game will continue to grow and continue to evolve and continue to change in a lot of ways, but the emphasis on shooting from the perimeter and the skillset and talent of players being able to shoot the ball from outside has played a large role with the change of the game over the last few years.
What’s the best piece of advice you received from another basketball player? Grant Hill: I’ve had a lot of advice along the way. There’s a lot of people that help you. Early on, Joe Dumars, when I played in Detroit, pretty much emphasized to me that the key to having longevity is to continue to grow and get better as a player. Watching him as an All-Star, as an experienced veteran, continue to work on his craft really left an impact.
