Scott Agness: Pacers picked up the team-option on Solomon Hill’s contract for the 2015-16 season, which will be his third year in the league.
Lavoy Allen, Donald Sloan and Solomon Hill will participate in the Pacers’ rookie/free agent camp from Tuesday-Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse and in the Southwest Airlines Pro Summer League in Orlando. The first game will be Saturday against Brooklyn with assistant Dan Burke serving as head coach.
The Pacers will bring in a mix of free agents and undrafted rookies. Last summer, veteran Rasual Butler made a big impression, earned an invite to training camp and was on the roster throughout the season. Players are scheduled to report to Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Sunday. The Pacers are expected to announce the complete roster this weekend. While not complete, the following are the players I have confirmed will take part: Solomon Hill, Donald Sloan, Kevin Jones, James Nunnally, Jake Odum, Tyler Stone, Ashaun Dixon-Tatum.
Being the bottom guy on a 14-man roster can be challenging. But he’s handling it well, whether it is passing out drinks at practice or only being referred to as “rook.” Solomon Hill is taking it in stride, part of a winning organization and understand that it is his year … then, he’s done forever. “I love it, though, because it’s a part of the dream,” he said. “Everybody goes through it.”
“The D-League is for developing talent and I didn’t get a chance to play,” Hill said. “I sat the whole fourth quarter. It’s like, is it really a developmental league? I’m very grateful for the opportunity to play with the Mad Ants organization, but in order for me to try to develop, I have to be on the floor. That just makes me think about my next trip, if I want to go back down there. I’m kind of not tempted to go back down there now just because if I go down there and play 25 minutes after a two-hour drive, it’s like, am I really developing?
Hill was back with the Pacers Saturday for shootaround and afterwards he voiced his displeasure with his experience in the D-League, which didn’t turn out to be what he expected. “I would like to say that (it was great for conditioning),” said Hill. “The first game was my fault. Foul trouble. “The second game I’m not too happy about. 25 minutes. I come out after 13 points in the first quarter, and then I end up playing 25 minutes for the full game. I went down to develop, and I didn’t get the chance to develop. I didn’t like that situation, but I hope the best for the team.”
The Indiana Pacers announced Sunday that rookie Solomon Hill has been assigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League. This is Hill’s first D-League assignment.
Vogel, who was working his way down the post-game spread, didn’t take his eyes off the meatballs to offer this: “I was texting my goodbyes,” he said. Hibbert continued: “I was sleeping then all of a sudden it just started rumbling for like 10 seconds straight. The rookie grabbed me on my leg –” “Yo! What’s going on over there,” Solomon Hill responded when he heard his name being besmirched.

Pacers first-round pick Solomon Hill has signed an endorsement deal with Nike, according to his agent. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. This comes as no surprise. Both his AAU team and the University of Arizona were outfitted by Nike. After being drafted by the Pacers on June 27 and signing his first NBA contract on July 3, Hill listened to any and all offers. “When you get older, it’s all business,” Hill said back in July. “Even though you like Nike, some people may come at you with a better position for yourself, a better brand for yourself so you have to listen to everybody.”
Here’s what a few other Pacers players had to say about the sleeved jerseys: Orlando Johnson: “Ah, not very good. They shouldn’t never ever do these type of jerseys in a game. This is like a shirt I’m working out in. It’s not a basketball jersey.” Solomon Hill: “They feel like dry-fits. It’s not really a bother. It’s cool because you basically feel like you’re just out there playing with a dry-fit t-shirt on.”
The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday the signings of their 2013 No. 1 draft pick, Solomon Hill, and free agent guard Donald Sloan to contracts. Per club policy, no terms of the contracts are released.
“I do believe he can play some minutes,” Pritchard added. “But, our job is to put as much talent out there, and then let the coaches determine who plays. We think he’s going to compete for minutes.”
Solomon Hill, a 6-foot-7, four-year player out of the University of Arizona was selected at No. 23. In what general manager Kevin Pritchard called a “weird, wacky draft,” they were happy when the 22-year-old was still available. “You can normally tell if you could’ve traded down if two minutes after the pick, you get calls,” he said. “We had multiple, multiple calls immediately trying to trade for the kid.”
The Indiana Pacers will hold their second workouts open to the media with prospects for the 2013 NBA Draft on Friday, June 13 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Prospects will work out in front of team officials and conduct interviews with the media. Players scheduled to workout for the Pacers on Friday are Chris Babb (Iowa State); Tim Hardaway Jr. (Michigan); Solomon Hill (Arizona); Tony Mitchell (North Texas); Andrew Smith (Butler); Axel Toupane (Strasbourg, France). The list of players is subject to change.
Dunkin’ Doug Anderson got his first NBA workout Thursday morning, and it happened to be with the Detroit Pistons. The 6-foot-6 Detroit Mercy small forward and Kalamazoo native is trying to catch the attention of teams with the athleticism and leaping ability that made him an ESPN sensation. Doug Anderson went against the likes of Solomon Hill of Arizona, Brandon Paul of Illinois, D.J. Stephens of Memphis, Loren Clyburn of Iowa State and Carick Felix of Arizona State at the Pistons workout.
Lucas also runs a pre-draft workout group. Last year’s group included 16 of the 60 players that were selected. Among the players working with Ledo in Houston are Solomon Hill (Arizona), Zeke Marshall (Akron) and Elston Turner (Texas A&M). Lucas says what he does is tell talented, young players what they don’t want to hear.
