Hill spent last season with the Utah Jazz. The team acquired Ricky Rubio in a trade upon learning it was unlikely for them to re-sign Hill. He is a career 45.3 percent shooter and has averaged nearly 12 points per game, 3.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game — though those numbers have been higher in recent seasons as he’s started and played more minutes.
Randolph is turning 36 but is still a productive frontcourt player. He averaged 14.1 points and 8.2 rebounds per game last season for the Grizzlies. He had been with Memphis since 2009.
