The Timberwolves announced they waived him after just one season with the team. Minnesota signed him as a free agent before the 2016-17 campaign, but he appeared in a mere seven games and averaged just 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds a night.
Hill's showing for Minnesota was a disappointing setback after the three most productive seasons of his career from 2013 to 2016. He averaged 9.7 points and 7.4 rebounds per game in 2013-14 and 12.0 points and 7.9 rebounds per game in 2014-15 with the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as 8.8 points and 6.2 rebounds per game in 2015-16 with the Indiana Pacers.
He is still just 29 years old and flashed consistent production down low those three straight seasons, meaning he should garner interest elsewhere after Minnesota released him.
From the Timberwolves' perspective, Bobby Marks of The Vertical noted their cap space would range from $18 to $22 million after trading for Jimmy Butler. According to Marks, they had until June 30 to guarantee Hill's $4 million contract, and they chose not to with this move.
Minnesota boasts a formidable core with Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins but lost some depth trading Zach LaVine and Kris Dunn. Hill's departure creates additional space to add someone who can serve as an impact role player, especially after the Arizona product was mostly an afterthought in his one season with the team.

LaVar Ball may be taking his verbal talents to the squared circle. Prior to Raw on Monday night, WWE star Titus O'Neil shared a photo with Ball:
Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin reported Saturday the WWE was in negotiations with Ball to potentially have him appear on Raw, which airs this week from Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Ball would be a natural inside a WWE ring.
His over-the-top persona is straight out of the playbook for a pro wrestling heel. Ball doesn't mind playing to crowds, either, as evidenced by his reaction to the vociferous boos he received inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on the night of the 2017 NBA draft, per The Ringer's Rodger Sherman:
The shame is that Ball's involvement with WWE will likely be limited to Monday night—at least for the time being. He has rarely turned down an opportunity to promote his Big Baller Brand, but it's doubtful he'd be willing to enter into any long-term arrangement with WWE.
Should Ball continue to be a viral sensation through April 2018, the company could potentially bring him back for WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans.
Every year, WWE welcomes in outside celebrities for WrestleMania, and Ball would be a perfect fit in a managerial role, similar to President Donald Trump backing up Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 23 against Umaga, who had Vince McMahon in his corner.
