Kendall Gill is a retired professional basketball player who briefly boxed when his basketball career ended.

He played at the University of Illinois and was a member of the 1989 team that went to the Final Four of the NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament.

Gill was picked fifth overall by the Charlotte Hornets in the 1990 National Basketball Association draft. He played for seven different teams during his fifteen seasons in the league: The Charlotte Hornets (1990-1993, 1995-1996), Seattle SuperSonics (1993-1995), New Jersey Nets (1996-2001), Miami Heat (2001-2002), Minnesota Timberwolves (2002-2003), Chicago Bulls (2003-2004) and Milwaukee Bucks (2004-2005).

Gill's NBA career ended when the Milwaukee Bucks released him in January 2005 after playing just 14 games for the organization.
