As an unrestricted free agent, Hill signed a seven-year $92 million contract with the Orlando Magic in a sign-and-trade deal that sent Chucky Atkins and Ben Wallace to Detroit. The Magic hoped to pair Hill with up and coming superstar Tracy McGrady. Unfortunately, Hill only played 4 games in his first year, 14 his second year, and 29 his third year with Orlando due to injuries. On top of that, he was forced to sit out the whole 2003-2004 season.
In the 2004-2005 season, Hill played 67 games with the Magic and he was voted in as an NBA All-Star. He finished the season with 19.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.4 steals. Hill was also awarded the Joe Dumars Trophy as the NBA Sportsmanship Award Winner.

For the 2011-2012 season, Hill signed a one-year $6.5 million contract with the Phoenix Suns. By the end of the season, Hill reached 17,000 total career points.
Hill had many suitors for the 2012-2013 season. He eventually decided to sign a two-year $4 million deal with the Clippers. Due to nagging injuries, Hill only played 29 games with the Clippers. And on June 1, 2013, Grant Hill announced his retirement from the NBA after 19 years.
"I'm glad to say I'm done," Hill said. "I'm officially retired, moving on from playing. I had a great run. I'm announcing it now. ... I've been hinting at it the last few years. You get to a point where you just don't want to do it anymore but I've enjoyed it. I've loved it."
