Hill will get to keep #33

New, comments

East Valley Tribune is reporting that Grant Hill will continue to wear number 33 as he begins his new career with the Suns.

No one has worn that number since Alvan Adams ended his 13-year career with the Suns in 1988. But Phoenix's all-time leader in games played (988), rebounds (6,937) and steals (1,237), who is now the vice president of facility management at US Airways Center, told the Suns he was OK with putting his number back in circulation for a player of Hill's stature and character.

What a classy gesture by Adams!

Hill will be officially signing with the Suns today. There's a press conference announced on Suns.com for 11:30am Pacific.
