Grant Hill Would Like To Play Until He’s 40

by May 09, 2010

As FanHouse first reported: “In an interview with FanHouse before Friday’s Game 3 of West semifinal at San Antonio, Hill, 37, said he won’t opt out of his contract this summer and he might just play until he’s 40. ‘Oh yeah,’ Hill, who is making $3 million this season and has a player option next season for $3.24 million, said after the morning shootaround at the AT&T Center. ‘I don’t plan on opting out. Even after this [contract], if I can still play and still play at this level, I still want to be here. I want to retire as a Sun. … I don’t have any interest in moving. I’d like to prove that I can play until I’m 40. That would be nice. But I’m not going to play if I can’t play at a level that I expect. Obviously, I’m not what I was 10 years ago. But I can still contribute and not be a liability. If I’m a liability, it’s time to move away, and I’ll move away. But, if I’ve still got it physically and I still have it up here, mentally and emotionally and I have that desire, yeah, I’ll play another two or three years.”’
