    Eddie Gill
    Number: 4 Height: 6-0 Weight: 190 Birthday: 8/16/78

    Scouting Report:
    For the first time in his career, Gill won't have to fight for a roster spot, as the Pacers signed him to a guaranteed contract. Each of his other NBA stints have been midseason call-ups for 10-day contracts. The Pacers like his quickness, mid-range shooting and defensive aggressiveness. Though he's behind veterans Jamaal Tinsley and Anthony Johnson in the rotation, he offers a change-of-pace matchup in that he can apply full-court pressure, defensively, and alter the tempo of the game, offensively.

  • In the 20th CBA All-Star Classic, 1/20/04, he helped lead the National team from a 20-point deficit to a two-point win with 15 points, a team-high six assists, 10 rebounds and three steals.
  • Had a triple-double for CBA Dakota (19 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists) vs. Yakima, 1/2/04.

  • In his first game with the Grizzlies on 2/25/02, he started and played all 48 minutes and scored a career-high 20 points. In his first seven games in Memphis, he averaged 10.1 points.
