Like his former teammates Chauncey Billups and Ben Wallace, Richard “Rip” Hamilton is getting his No. 32 jersey raised to the rafters of the Palace of Auburn Hills.

The Pistons announced on Friday that Hamilton’s digits will be retired during a halftime ceremony on February 26.
Detroit is where I celebrated the greatest achievements during my pro basketball career and to be recognized by the organization in this way, I’m honored and I look forward to sharing this experience with all the fans and who supported me throughout my years as a Piston and look forward to celebrating in The Palace one final time. Yessirrrrrrrrrr #holdat #Best5Alive
A three-time All-Star during his tenure with Detroit, Hamilton was a key starter on the 2004 championship team that also reached the Eastern Conference finals six consecutive years.
