Grant Henry Hill (born October 5, 1972) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA.

As a collegian with Duke University, he was the 1994 ACC Player of the Year, a two time NCAA All-American, and a two time NCAA champion. As a professional he was the 1995 NBA co-Rookie of the Year, and has been a seven-time NBA All-Star, four time All-NBA Second Team selection, and three time winner of the NBA Sportsmanship Award.

Throughout his college career and early in his years with the Detroit Pistons, Hill was widely considered to be one of the best all-around players in the game, often leading his team in points, rebounds and assists. His time in the league has been hampered by career-threatening injuries, notably during his prime years.

The son of NFL standout fullback Calvin Hill, the 40 year-old Hill is the second-oldest player in the NBA, one day younger than Kurt Thomas.
