Gregory Alan 'Greg' Grant (born August 29, 1966) is a retired American professional basketball player.
Growing up in a broken home, Grant worked in a fish market after high school. After being discovered at the local playground, the 5'7" (1.70 m) point guard enrolled at Trenton State College in 1986, and led Division III in scoring in 1989.
That same year he was selected with the 52nd pick by the Phoenix Suns in the NBA Draft. Grant now runs a sports academy in Trenton. Grant also offers one-on-one instructions and clinics. With the help of writer (and fellow Trenton native) Martin Sumners, Grant detailed his unlikely journey from the playgrounds to college and all the way to the NBA in his autobiography, 94 Feet and Rising: The Journey of Greg Grant to the NBA and Beyond, released on July 17, 2009.
