    Solomon Hill will be traded to the Grizzlies.

    Memphis and Atlanta are exchanging unwanted salary, and it'll be easier to move out smaller chunks of money in Hill and Miles Plumlee than it was to come to a buyout agreement with Chandler Parsons. Hill could see minutes if Memphis moves out its more tradeable players first, but there's not fantasy value at play here.

    Solomon Hill will be dealt to the Hawks as a result of Thursday's draft night trade.

    The Pelicans have been trying to get out of Hill's contract for a over a year now, and while it also saw the No. 4 pick head out the door New Orleans received Nos. 8, 17 and 35, plus a future first-rounder from the Cavs. David Griffin has done a great job restocking the cupboards with his trade of Anthony Davis. Hill does not figure to play much for Atlanta.

    Solomon Hill finished the season with five points, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three in 21 minutes on Tuesday, landing him outside the top-300 for the season.

    Even with the Pelicans shutting players down, Hill couldn't get much traction. In fact, he scored in double-figures just four times in his 43 games this season despite averaging almost 20 minutes per game. He's not going to be worth rostering next season.

    Solomon Hill made a cameo on Sunday night, scoring 13 points with six rebounds, a block and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Hill's back in the rotation with New Orleans so shorthanded, but there's only appeal in very deep leagues here. He is getting 25-plus mpg regularly at the moment but even that might not be enough to raise his floor to an acceptable level.

    F, New Orleans Pelicans

    Julius Randle (right ankle sprain), Elfrid Payton (right ankle sprain) and E’Twaun Moore (bruised left quad) will not play on Saturday against the Spurs.

    With Anthony Davis on the trade block, the Pelicans won’t be rushing any of their guys back and it’s starting to look as if they might tank down the stretch. Darius Miller, Solomon Hill and Frank Jackson are all DFS options but the Spurs aren’t the best matchup no matter who the Pelicans trot out there.

    Solomon Hill turned in a low-key game on Saturday vs. the Spurs, chipping in seven points, five rebounds, four assists and a trey in 30 minutes.

    He started in place of Darius Miller (11 points, three assists), but did not make too much of an impact on the box score. He's a low-end option with a window of value tied closely to the current absence of the Pelicans' regular starters. Leave him on the wire for now.

    Despite the Pelicans tweeting out Darius Miller being in the starting lineup for Saturday's game, Solomon Hill was in fact the one that started against the Spurs.

    With the game already under way, it does not mean too much now. This was the lineup we originally expected as Miller was only a starter last game with E'Twaun Moore out.

    Solomon Hill scored seven points with five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block on in his start on Thursday.

    Nikola Mirotic (foot), Julius Randle (ankle) and Anthony Davis (hand) were all out tonight which meant Solomon Hill would log 37 minutes. A lot of things fell in place for him to get this run and he still couldn't produce a standard-league line so it's safe to say you can ignore him.

    Solomon Hill will start in place of Julius Randle (sprained right ankle) on Thursday night.

    There's no telling how long Randle will be sidelined for but Hill and Darius Miller will soak up the power forward work with both Randle and Nikola Mirotic sidelined. Miller might be the regular starter here, but he's already been promoted in place of E'Twaun Moore (rest) tonight. Hill's only a deep-league option for the truly desperate, but there are so many Pelicans missing that everyone should get a shot at producing tonight.

    Solomon Hill drew the start with Darius Miller out on Saturday but didn't do much in his 19 minutes of action, finishing with two points and two assists.

    Hill also had four fouls. He's not much of a fantasy option, and that big 3-and-D finish to his 2015-16 campaign certainly looks like fool's gold now. The Pelicans quickly lavished him with a big deal in the Summer of Spending but there's no reason for fantasy players to look his way.

    Solomon Hill will start Saturday against the Rockets with Darius Miller (illness) out.

    E'Twaun Moore and Wesley Johnson should also pick up a few extra minutes. Miller is the only one with deep league value of this group, and Hill is not a favorable cheap DFS option. Jrue Holiday, Julius Randle and Anthony Davis could all be in for big games against Houston.

    Solomon Hill started at small forward on Wednesday night but wound up with three points (1-of-4 from the field) and two assists in 23 minutes of work.

    Hill had recently been out of the rotation but the Pelicans picked him to replace E'Twaun Moore tonight. That shouldn't last long (despite Hill's large contract) and if there's one depth forward to use in deep leagues here, it's Darius Miller (12 points, four triples, one steal in 26 minutes).

    The Pelicans will deploy a starting five of Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, Tim Frazier, Julius Randle and Solomon Hill in Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

    We knew that Randle was going to start with Nikola Mirotic ruled out early with an illness. Solomon Hill will be starting in place of E'Twaun Moore, who is available but will be coming off the bench. Hill played 28 minutes on Sunday and posted a well-round, albeit low-end line, making him someone to watch in DFS and in deep leagues for season-long fantasy.

    Solomon Hill played a surprising 28 minutes in Sunday's road win over the Hornets, posting six points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    The Pelicans will need guys like Hill to step up in the wake of E'Twaun Moore's injury but Hill had fallen out of the rotation until four games ago. He's seen 17 minutes or more in every game since, leading up to today's season-high in playing time. Owners in 20-team formats can consider Hill a viable option again.
