One GM thinks Solomon Hill’s value is 7-9 M per year this summer with increased cap. The small forward certainly increased the market for his services during the Pacers’ first-round loss to Toronto. Hill averaged 7.7 points, 4 rebounds in the series & shot 58% from 3. He also had a net rating (points scored per 100 possessions-points allowed per 100 possessions while on the floor) of +8.7.

To make matters worse, the Pacers turned down the fourth year of Hill’s rookie contract. The final year of Hill’s rookie deal would’ve cost the Pacers $2.3 million, a measly figure compared to the expected salary cap hike that will come during the upcoming off-season. In five games in April, Hill is averaging 10.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.4 steals while shooting 57.5 percent from the field and 42.9 percent on three-pointers. Hill has three consecutive games with double-digit points after only two games this season with double-digit scoring outputs previously.

Chase Budinger was one of three Pacers — Paul George and Monta Ellis the others — to have played in every game this season entering Saturday night’s contest against the Detroit Pistons. In that 94-82 Pacers win, he never saw the floor. It wasn’t his fault, either. Third-year wing Solomon Hill has played so well that coach Frank Vogel said he couldn’t keep him out of the rotation. “Solomon Hill’s been giving us something in the last couple of games when he’s been called upon,” Vogel said after the win. “I just wanted to get Solomon in there somehow. Chase was the guy that we had to pull out. It wasn’t anything that Chase had done.”
