PISTONS READY TO GIVE HILL BIG BUCKS

The Detroit Pistons are ready to sign rookie Grant Hill to an eight-year, $45 million contract, The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press reported today.

Hill, a 6-foot-8 forward from Duke, will become the richest athlete in Detroit sports history, the News said. Hill's contract will top the agreement signed in 1993 with Tigers slugger Cecil Fielder for $36 million over five seasons, the newspaper said.
