Don’t bet on Grant Hill heading East just yet. Or is he…

UPDATE 10:07 am: I guess it depends on where the news is coming from. While Arizona says Hill is staying put, more reports in the New York Post Thursday say Grant Hill is about to be a Knick.

“It’s not 100 percent done, but he’s leaning,’’ one source said.

The Bulls and San Antonio also are in the mix, according to Sports Illustrated.

The reality is the Knicks think they have him and the Suns think they have him and the only person that knows the answer is Grant Hill himself (and probably his wife). And right now he’s not talking.

8:11 am: Wednesday, the report was Grant Hill was leaning toward taking is talents and family east to be part of what the Knicks are building. Which meant leaving the warm and comfortable life of Phoenix.

Don’t bet on that. Here is what Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic tweeted.

As for Grant Hill, he was at the arena working out again today. Despite reports elsewhere, those who know him still believe he will re-sign.

By working out, we mean at the Suns facilities in Phoenix.

As we said before, Hill has a choice to make. Part of it is about basketball — the Knicks are the more exciting, up-and-coming team, while the Suns have Steve Nash and a system (and training staff) that have worked for Hill. The bigger issue may be family lifestyle — does he want to take his elementary school age children out of suburban Phoenix to live in NYC (or its burbs)? His wife, a recording artist, will have a say.

In the end, the question is what does Grant Hill really want? That may well be the comfort of the Valley of the Sun.

    There’s no salary cap on medical staff. Why hasn’t some NBA team just blown the Suns medical personnel out of the water with money and perks? Between Nash, Hill, Shaq — those guys are miracle workers. Gar Heard could probably average 15 a game now with the Suns if he worked with that medical team.
