Given how much Solomon Hill did for the Atlanta Hawks this season, if he was paid $5 million then this would have been a decent contract. However, Hill had one of the best contracts in the NBA last season and he was only on $2.2 million. He was a low-key high-value pickup for the Hawks in the last offseason.

While many people look at the raw numbers of a player to judge his effectiveness, Hill has defied this trend for his entire career. Fortunately for the Hawks, Hill earned big money in his last deal with similar numbers. This means he might want to try again next season with a cheap contract.

Contract grade: A+
