Grant Hill looking at TV post-retirement


Grant Hill's post-basketball career could include a stint on air, as he's interested in moving to broadcast after 18 years in the NBA.

Get ready to hear Grant Hill on your TV, just a year after he played his final NBA season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Hill was at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., watching his daughter, Myla, train at soccer. There, he discussed his retirement and hinted at post-hoops career:

I'm excited that it's over. It was a long journey in terms of my career. But I'm very excited about the next phase and some broadcasting things. I'm looking at some things that we're working on right now with some of the major networks, so that is something that can keep you in and around the game and around sports.

There aren't many surer bets to go pro in broadcasting. Hill earned his respect over 18 years in the NBA, and has a degree from Duke, a fact he isn't afraid to bring up. As a highly intelligent, well-versed and well-known NBA player, he should be an extremely hot commodity in the world of broadcast.

It's been a good year for the 1994-1995 co-rookies of the year: although both Hill and Jason Kidd have announced their retirement, Kidd has found a job as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, and Hill shouldn't be unemployed for long.

The three-time All-Star announced his retirement on Inside the NBA -- could TNT be in the run for his services two years after hiring Shaquille O'Neal?

This brings up the question of which other NBA players seem like league-to-TV types. Ray Allen is obvious, but who else? Chauncey Billups? I'm praying for TV Kobe, although we'll have to wait a few years, and even then he may not be interested.
