Hill's NBA tour hits Phoenix

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Solomon Hill came back to Arizona on Saturday.

The Wildcat Basketball alum ('13) worked out for the Phoenix Suns as he continues a pre-draft tour that has taken him to 17 NBA cities.

Hill is not currently listed as a draft pick on NBADraft.net although his former head coach Sean Miller told the Arizona Daily Star earlier this week that he feels Solomon has showed enough in workouts that he could sneak into the late first round.

Hill indicated that most of the workouts he's participated in have been similar although there are teams that have taken players through their own schematic concepts.

"Oklahoma City was a team that was really structured in putting you into a position of what they like to do on offense and how they play defense," said Hill.

The Suns told Hill they want to play fast with 2nd year point guard Kendall Marshall and are looking for guys who can get out on the wings and guard at the same time.

Although his status is uncertain, Hill feels like he still has plenty of upside.

"You look at a guy like Brandon Roy coming out of college. You wouldn't have thought that he'd be the player that he was, that he matured to be," said Hill.

"Or (Spurs forward) Khawi Leonard? People said he couldn't shoot and now he's doing little things for his team. It's because he's getting better in the system. He and Danny Green got better in San Antonio's system. People can always get better."

The NBA Draft is Thursday, June 27th in New York City.
