Thursday morning one liners: Grant Hill could return Friday

Apr 12, 2012, 11:28 AM EDT

Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points.

• Look for Grant Hill to return to the Suns Friday. They really could have used him and his perimeter defense Wednesday when Rudy Gay torched the Suns and the Grizzlies won.

• A fantastic look from David Thorpe about what the Bobcats need in the draft. No, he didn’t just write “everything.” Or just “Anthony Davis,” although they certainly could use him.

Jamal Crawford to the Golden State Warriors? It could happen.

• Boston’s Mickael Pietrus on what he did to get his brain healthy after the concussion: “”Just take the brain out, make it lift weights, put it on the treadmill, put it back in. Fix it.’’

• If you think NBA officiating is bad, check out this video from a Russian league.

• A fantastic interview with Hornets coach Monty Williams. He likes Marco Belinelli more than you do.

• Very smart people like Kelly Dwyer at Ball Don’t Lie are not as convinced as I that the Celtics could come out of the East. (I still think they need everything to go perfectly but it could happen.)

• A look at all the options before the owners as they start to deal with the Sacramento Kings and their arena situation Thursday.

• A recap of every ejection in Andrew Bynum‘s and Kobe Bryant’s careers.

• Dunk contest champion Jeremy Evans is a game time decision Friday due to an ankle injury.

• Here’s a profile of Jerry Colangelo, the guy behind Team USA now.

Ryan Reid, who played in five games for the Thunder this season, has signed a contract to play in Puerto Rico.
