A curious figure surfaced near court side at the 66ers Sunday Night game against the Arsenal, Steven Hill. No announcements have been made, but its looking more and more likely that Steven Hill is set to re-join the organization, at the D-League Level, Tulsa 66ers. Steven Hill was of course released after the Thunder signed Nenad Krstic to a multi-year deal. The Thunder, shortly after, traded Johan Petro to the Nuggets for Chucky Atkins, and a draft pick.
Our guess is that the trading of Johan Petro has lead the organization to re-visit the development project of Steven Hill. For the 66ers, it'll mean a big man inside, and for the Thunder organization as a whole, it means a chance to see if the 7 footer can develop at the lower level. For the Thunder this season though, its rather inconsequential, but long-term, you never know, maybe he can develop into a player who can come off the bench and be a contributor in a few years.
