    USA Basketball picks Grant Hill to replace Jerry Colangelo as managing director

    Grant Hill helped the U.S. win Olympic gold in 1996. He would have been on the team again in 2000 if not for injury. And he was among the college kids who famously beat the first "Dream Team" in a scrimmage before the 1992 Olympics.

    Now USA Basketball is bringing him back.

    Hill will become the men's national team managing director after the Tokyo Olympics, USA Basketball said Saturday. He'll replace the retiring Jerry Colangelo, in a move where one Basketball Hall of Famer takes over for another in the critical role of assembling teams that will compete for gold.

    "It's just an incredible opportunity, also an incredible challenge," Hill said Saturday. "I had the good fortune of participating in international play -- the Pan American Games, of course the Olympic team -- and I have been a fan of Team USA going back to the 1984 Olympic team when I first started to fall in love with basketball. The more I thought about it, the more intrigued, excited and the more willing I was to roll up my sleeves and move forward with this awesome responsibility."
