Richard Hamilton Officially Announces Retirement

Former Detroit Pistons star Richard “Rip” Hamilton officially announced his retirement from the NBA on ESPN2’s “His & Hers” Thursday:

I honestly had no idea Hamilton wasn’t actually retired, but I guess he wasn’t. We last saw Hamilton in an NBA uniform with the Chicago Bulls in the 2012-13 season. Hamilton signed with the Bulls prior to the 2011-12 season after playing the bulk of his career with the Detroit Pistons. His time in Chicago was marred by injury, and he was ultimately waived using the stretch provision. (He’s still getting paid by the Bulls this season.)

Hamilton began his career with the Washington Wizards, who selected him seventh overall in 1999. He spent three seasons in Washington before being traded to Detroit. The shooting guard enjoyed a lot of success with the Pistons, making three All-Star Games and winning an NBA title in 2004. And as the tweet above states, he’s Detroit’s all-time leading playoff scorer.
