High school and college career

Hunter played basketball at Proviso East High School, which has a rich history in Illinois high school basketball, producing such NBA players as Sherell Ford, Michael Finley, Jim Brewer, Doc Rivers, Dee Brown, and Shannon Brown. Hunter then played two years at DePaul University in Chicago, before declaring himself eligible for the 2001 NBA Draft.

Professional career

He has played for the Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns and the Philadelphia 76ers.

In the 2005 offseason, he signed with the 76ers as a free agent. They traded him to the New Orleans Hornets on February 1, 2006 in exchange for two second-round draft picks in 2006 and 2007. On February 10, Philadelphia president Billy King announced that the Hornets rescinded the deal.

On September 10, 2007, Hunter was traded with Bobby Jones by the 76ers to the Denver Nuggets for Reggie Evans and the draft rights to Ricky Sanchez.[1]

On August 7, 2009, the Nuggets traded Hunter and a lottery-protected 2010 first-round draft pick to the Memphis Grizzlies for a future second-round pick.[2]

In October 2011 he signed with Dinamo Sassari in Italy.[3]

In 2014, Hunter would become the Phoenix Suns' ambassador throughout the community in Arizona.
