While Baltimore and Charlotte are the only two of the several NAACP chapters MMQB spoke to that are planning demonstrations, six chapter presidents are unanimous in their support of Kaepernick and in their belief that he’s being blackballed by NFL teams.
We thought (the Ravens were going to sign Kaepernick) because (Joe) Flacco was going to be out injured, said Tessa Hill-Aston, president of the Baltimore City NAACP. I’m the largest branch in the state of Maryland, and we do attend a lot of the games. We have had a good relationship with the team. They have invited us to bring children to their training camp, so it’s been a good friendship.
Hill should be a nice fit alongside first-round pick De’Aaron Fox, whether it’s starting while Fox gets his feet wet or playing alongside him off the ball. The Kings are loaded with shooting guards, but Hill’s versatility, leadership, and strong spot-up shooting will still be helpful as the Kings begin their rebuilding effort.
Hill is a versatile combo guard that can handle the ball, but also spot up off it and defend bigger players. In Indiana, he ceded a lot of playmaking responsibility to Lance Stephenson and Paul George, but he proved in his lone year with the Jazz that he can be a solid scorer off the dribble as well. He averaged nearly 17 points per game with the Jazz last year while posting a true shooting percentage near 60 percent.
Hill takes good shots and converts them proficiently. He’s a career 38 percent three-point shooter than knocked down more than 40 percent of his triples in each of the last two years.
