Rivers, now coach of the Boston Celtics, and Hill, an unrestricted free agent who played last season for the Phoenix Suns, will meet Sunday in Orlando to discuss the possibility of working together again. Both make their offseason homes here.
"I don't have to go very far to meet with him this time,'' Hill said Saturday night before watching his wife Tamia perform at a Summer Soul Series concert in Orlando.
Hill also is scheduled to travel Monday morning to New York, where he will meet with Knicks general manager Donnie Walsh and coach Mike D'Antoni. Suns general manager Steve Kerr came to Orlando Wednesday to speak with Hill about re-signing in Phoenix.
"I don't know what's going to happen now,'' Hill said. "It's too early to say.''
Rivers and Hill spent parts of four seasons together (2000-2004) with the Orlando Magic, but the period was scarred by injuries. Hill spent most of his time on the sideline, battling right ankle problems that required four different surgeries and almost ended his career. His absence from the lineup, and Orlando's struggles without him, were why Rivers was fired early in the 2003-04 season.
Hill, 36, isn't the player he once was before his ankle woes when he averaged 25.8 points with the Detroit Pistons in 1999-00, but he is healthy and productive again. He played all 82 games last season in Phoenix when he averaged 12 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists in almost 30 minutes.
The Celtics, meanwhile, have been looking to add to an already veteran core that won the NBA title two seasons ago. They met with Detroit's Rasheed Wallace last week.
