It's unclear if Grant Hill will be inducted as a Detroit Pistons player. He was drafted by Detroit, third overall in the 1994 NBA Draft. He played more game in a Pistons jersey than with any other team.
Hill had arguably his best NBA days in Detroit, playing for the Pistons between 1994 and 2000, being selected to the All-Star game five times in a Pistons (teal) jersey.
Hill, who went to Duke, also spent time with the Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers, before retiring in 2013.
In Pistons history, Hill is ninth all-time in points and fourth in points per game (21.6).
