It's December, so you know what that means. It's officially trade rumor season.
ESPN's Marc Stein has reported that Indiana Pacers have put forward Solomon Hill on the trading block, and the New Orleans Pelicans have expressed interest in the swingman.
Hill, who has fallen out of the lineup significantly this season, has averaged 6.3 minutes per game after averaging 29 the season prior.
Can confirm @ESPNSteinLine's report about Solomon Hill being on trade block. I'm hearing NOLA Pelicans are among those interested.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) December 5, 2015
The return and early dominance of Paul George to start the season has left little room for Hill in the rotation during the Pacer's impressive early start.
Hill averaged 8.9 points per game last season off 39.6 percent shooting and snagged 3.8 boards per game, but has only been featured in a total of seven games this season.
