NBA Rumors: Grant Hill not coming back

Grant Hill took one last chance at winning a championship when he signed with the Los Angeles Clippers prior to the 2012-13 season.

After the Clippers were taken down by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round, Hill decided to hang up his sneakers for good and retire from the NBA.

However, that hasn’t stopped teams from approaching Hill about making a return to the court this season.

“Oh, yeah, I have gotten a few calls here and there about coming back,” Hill told Sean Deveney of the Sporting News. “I won’t say who. But I, without a doubt, have no desire to come back and play. I remember someone telling me, play until the wheels have fallen off. The wheels are off.

“I appreciate my role being around the NBA, around the game. That right there is enjoyable for me. But there’s no desire to play. You always want to play, but being on an NBA team, I have no desire to do that. Zero regrets.”

Hill averaged just 3.2 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game last season, but averaged 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game over his career, which started in 1994.
