Hill was a freshman on the 1987 XU team and won the NCAA Tournament for the first time. He also led the team to 26 wins as a sophomore, a school record, and another journey to the NCAA Tournament.
Hill started his junior season on a high note, striking the game-winning shot against fourth-ranked Louisville in the Dodge NIT First Round at a sold-out Riverfront Coliseum. He then led the Musketeers to a school-record 28 wins as a senior.
During his professional career from 1990 to 2004, he was a member of five NBA (National Basketball Association) teams, including The Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers, and Miami Heat.
In the 1990 NBA draft, Hill was selected with the eleventh pick by The Golden State Warriors in the first round. After three seasons with the Golden State Warriors, he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in 1993.
Hill also made an All-Star Game appearance in 1995. He set a single-season franchise record for Cleveland and was ranked second in the NBA. After playing for Cleveland Cavaliers for four years, he was part of a three-team trade that sent him to the Milwaukee Bucks in 1997. Hill spent two years with Milwaukee Bucks before playing for the Philadelphia 76ers from 1998 to 2001.
However, he returned to Cleveland Cavaliers in 2001 after playing for the Philadelphia 76ers for three years. Hill left Cleveland for the second time and started playing for Philadelphia again from 2002 to 2003. He then joined Miami Heat in 2003 for his last season and played there until 2004.
Hill retired from his playing NBA career with 7,532 points, 6,854 rebounds, and 647 assists. He shot 50.2% from the field and 63% from the free-throw line during his career.
After retiring from the league, he worked for his Cincinnati-based record label, All Net Records. Besides that, he also served as the coach for Atlanta Hawks.
During his time at Atlanta Hawks, he mentioned in an interview that he never thought about coaching until he got away from the game. "I always mentored the younger guys who came in behind me, and I always looked at the older guys when I came in the league when I was a rookie and how they mentored us and how they groomed us," Hill added.
Hill has been married to his wife Tracey since June 1996. However, there is not much knowledge about their relationship and personal life.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Hill has a net worth of $23 million as of 2021. He amassed the multi-million dollar empire mostly because of his NBA career.
