Eddie Gill (born August 16, 1978) is an American former professional basketball player who played as a Point guard. Gill went undrafted after a college career at Weber State University, and began his professional career with the New Jersey Nets, going on to play for the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers, New Jersey Nets and Seattle SuperSonics. He has averaged 3.1 points per game over his NBA career.

Playing for the Nets in a game against the Boston Celtics, on April 15, 2001, he scored the eight millionth point in NBA history.[1]

Gill also played for the IBL's Las Vegas Silver Bandits, the ABA's Kansas City Knights and Dakota Wizards, the NBA Development League's Asheville Altitude, in Greece with Ionikos Athens[1], and in Italy with Reggio Emilia and Paf Bologna (2001, won the Italian League). He played in the Euroleague for Dynamo Moscow in 2006.[2]

On October 1, 2007, Gill signed with the New Jersey Nets but was waived on October 25 after playing 13 games. He played in 32 games for the NBA D-League's Colorado 14ers. After a brief stint as a free agent, Gill was selected first overall in the NBDL draft by the Colorado 14ers on November 1, 2007.[3] Fifteen days later on November 16, Gill was signed again by the Nets due to a thigh injury to Darrell Armstrong.[4]

On March 24, 2008, the Seattle SuperSonics signed Gill to a ten-day contract, due to a depleted lineup.[5] He played only 5 minutes against the Portland Trail Blazers in his first game.[6] On April 3, his contract expired and was not renewed.[7]

He signed with the New Jersey Nets in the 2008 offseason but was waived, among with 3 other players, before the season started (October 24). He had averaged 4.5 points and 1 assist in six preseason games.[8]

During the early months of 2009, the Milwaukee Bucks, facing a depleted roster due to injuries, decided to sign Gill to a 10-day contract on February 9, 2009.[9] He signed a second 10 day contract on February 20.
