Hill was a Knicks cast-off in his first pro season and his second season proved the Knicks wise. He showed the flashes of brilliance that made him a college stand-out and a good prospect on draft day, but never developed the ability to play under control in a team concept. Hill is a natural power forward, so like Hayes, he was playing out of position most of the time. That fact, and his raw talent will probably keep him around for another year just to see if a new coach and system can bring out something in him that Adelman could not. But if he can’t make the team around him better next year, he will not play long in Toyota Center.
