Tyrone Hill (born March 19, 1968) is an American retired basketball player and, since 2008–09, assistant coach for the National Basketball Association's Atlanta Hawks.[1] Hill spent four years playing collegiately at Xavier University, in his last season averaging 20.2 points and 12.6 rebounds per game, while shooting 58.1% from the field.[2] The Golden State Warriors selected him with the eleventh pick of the 1990 NBA draft.[3]

After three years in Golden State, Hill was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the summer of 1993.[3] Playing under Mike Fratello, Hill earned an All-Star Game appearance in 1995.[3] He set Cleveland's single-season franchise record by shooting a career-best 60.0% from the field[4] (and ranked second in the NBA).[1][3] Hill was sent to the Milwaukee Bucks in a 1997 three-team deal involving notably Terrell Brandon and Shawn Kemp,[3] and spent the remainder of his career between the Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland (2 stints; 1993–94 to 1996–97 and 2001–02 to 2002–03[1]), and the Miami Heat.[3]

As the starting power forward for Philadelphia, Hill teamed up with Theo Ratliff and later with Dikembe Mutombo[5] with whom he played in the 2001 NBA Finals,[5] losing to the Los Angeles Lakers.[5] He is frequently referred to as the ultimate "lunch pail and hard hat" player, due to his rugged style of play and relentless defense and rebounding prowess.[6][7][8]

Hill had a career field-goal shooting percentage of 50.2 and free-throw percentage of 63.[3]

Tyrone also owned a Cincinnati, Ohio-based record company called All Net Records and released various singles and albums by groups including OTR Clique, D'Meka, Renaizzance, and KompoZur.[9]
