Solo is on the move yet again.

Ex-Arizona Wildcats star Solomon Hill, set to play his eighth season in the NBA, has signed a 1-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

It will be the fifth franchise Hill has played for since joining the league in 2013, and third in the past year. Hill began last season with the Memphis Grizzlies, only to be traded (along with fellow ex-Wildcat Andre Iguoudala) to the Miami Heat in February.

Hill technically has already been with the Hawks, having been their property for less than a day in July 2019 after getting moved in a trade from the New Orleans Pelicans before Atlanta shipped him to Memphis.

Hill was used minimally by Miami during its run to the NBA Finals, logging only 42 minutes in seven games, and our friends at Peachtree Hoops say Hill “doesn’t project for an immediate rotation role on a (Hawks) team that currently employs John Collins, Danilo Gallinari, De’Andre Hunter and others at similar positions. Still, Hill is a respected veteran who could be deployed in a pinch, and the Hawks continue to add intriguing depth.”

Originally taken by the Indiana Pacers as the 23rd pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, Hill has started 172 games and averaged 5.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists for his career.
