(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angles Clippers announced Saturday that seven-time NBA All-Star Grant Hill will retire.
Hill played in 29 games for the Clippers this season, as he battled with injuries. When Hill did play he averaged 3.2 points and 1.7 rebounds a game.
The 40-year-old Hill had signed a two-year contract with the Clippers last year, but towards the end of this season he talked about retiring.
“The entire Clippers organization wants to congratulate Grant on an incredible career,” Clippers Vice President of Basketball Operations Gary Sacks said in a press release. “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 19-year NBA career averaging 16.7 points, six rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.
