One of the oldest players in the NBA may finally be ready to hang up his sneakers. Grant Hill, who has played in the NBA since 1994, told ESPN's J.A. Adande that he thinks this season will be his last:
"This will probably be it," Hill said. "I have committed myself to not making any decisions until I get to the end of the year, like I've done the last three or four years, but this is probably it. My body and also my mind are in agreement on this."
Hill was one of the best players in the NBA in the 1990s before a devastating series of foot injuries in the early portion of the 2000s nearly thrust him into retirement. In his mid 30s, he re-invented himself as a role player in Phoenix, becoming a vital part on a Suns team that made the 2010 Western Conference Finals.
Hill signed as a free agent with the L.A. Clippers this off-season, but he's had a hard time staying healthy enough to get consistent minutes. He's averaging 3.2 points and 1.7 rebounds on 38 percent shooting in 27 games this season.
