Grant Hill Announces He Is Retiring From The NBA


After 19 seasons on the court; Los Angeles Clippers forward Grant Hill announces he is done with the game of basketball. He made the announcement on TNT before Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals.

“I’m glad to say I’m done,” Hill said. “I’m officially retired, moving on from playing. I had a great run. I’m announcing it now. … I’ve been hinting at it the last few years. You get to a point where you just don’t want to do it anymore but I’ve enjoyed it. I’ve loved it.”

“The entire Clippers organization wants to congratulate Grant on an incredible career,” Clippers vice president of basketball operations Gary Sacks said. “For 19 years, Grant has always been the embodiment of class, a true professional and not only one of the best players — but one of the finest individuals I have been around. We were fortunate to have Grant with us last season, and we wish him all the best in his next endeavor.”

Hill finishes his career with averages of 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.2 steals in 33.9 minutes per game. Hill played in 1,026 total NBA games (972 starts) and connected on 48.3 percent of his field goals, 31.4 percent from behind the 3-point line and 76 percent of his free throws over his career.

Xclusive Memphis recently sat down with Grant’s beautiful wife, Tamia Hill. If you missed the interview you can catch it here.  And no don’t worry about seeing the Hill’s on Basketball Wives. Tamia has already shot that down.

Will we see Tamia and Grant Hill on ANY Reality Tv:

“No, that’s not something we are interested in doing.”


Congrats Grant.  Hope you enjoy retirement with Tamia and the girls.
