Herbert Hill
HERBERT HILL

Al Ittihad Jeddah (SBL) tabbed experienced 34-year old American forward Herbert Hill (208-84, college: Providence). He played most recently at Nishinomiya Storks in Japanese B League. In 31 B1 League games he averaged 13.8ppg, 6.6rpg and 1.8apg last season. Hill also played for Toyotsu (B2 League) in Japanese league where in 28 games he had 13.1ppg, 7.8rpg, 1.7apg and 1.1bpg.
In 2007 he was drafted by Utah Jazz (NBA) in second round (55th overall). Hill attended Providence College and it is his twelfth (!!!) season in pro basketball.
Among other achievements his team made it to the Korean KBL Semifinals in 2011 and 2017. Hill was selected to Korean KBL All-Star Game back in 2012.
He is a very experienced player. And here thanks to pro basketball Hill experienced life in nine different countries playing on three different continents. He is familiar with Asian, Latin American and of course North American leagues. Hill has played previously professionally in Bahrain, China, France, Korea (Mobis Phoebus, KCC Egis and KT Sonicboom), Lebanon (Tadamon and Champville), Philippines, Puerto Rico, Venezuela (Panteras and Gigantes) and Vietnam (Saigon Heat).
Let's have closer look into Hill's outlook: (by Matthew Maurer for NBADraft.net in 2007)
Shows good mobility, running the court with ease. Has worked hard to improve his touch around the basket. Possesses great hands, capable of catching most passes without fumbling or losing control of the ball. Solid rebounder who uses his long arms and hands to tip balls out of position to himself. Solid finisher where he wastes little time, keeps the ball high and goes right up.
This lack of strength can work against him when he faces physical forwards limiting his ability to get good position in the post. Can be stunted by double teams as he doesnt always read the defense quick enough to react
