Sean Deveney of Sporting News added to why the talks may have fallen apart.
Source on the status of Jordan Hill: "Mitch Kupchak upped the ante." Which means he could remain a member of the @Lakers.— Sean Deveney (@SeanDeveney) February 20, 2014
Peter Vecsey then confirmed what seemed likely.
This just in: Nets have passed on Jordan Hill. Looking elsewhere for possible frontcourt help— Peter Vecsey (@PeterVecsey1) February 20, 2014
Nets essentially ended pursuit of J. Hill for 2 reasons: LA wanted a decent 2nd-rd pick. Contract bonuses could have added $1mil in taxes— Howard Beck (@HowardBeck) February 20, 2014
