Sean Elliott is an American former professional basketball player who starred at small forward in both the college and professional ranks. He began his basketball career at University of Arizona, where he was a two-time All-American, winner of the 1989 John R. Wooden Award, the 1989 Adolph Rupp Trophy, the 1989 NABC Player of the Year, 1989 AP Player of the Year, and two time Pac-12 Player of the Year (in 1988–1989).
Elliott joined the San Antonio Spurs in 1989. While playing for the Spurs, he earned a spot on the NBA All-Rookie Second Team, and proceeded to the Western Conference All-Star Team in 1992-93. He was traded to the Detroit Pistons for the 1993-94 season, and, battling injuries and illness, hit a career low, averaging 12 points per game.
Mid-season the Pistons traded him to the Houston Rockets. However, the trade was later nullified because he failed a physical. In the off-season, the Pistons traded him back to San Antonio.
Back with the Spurs, Elliott's career rebounded despite his failing health. After regaining his All-Star status in 1994-95, he had his best season in 1995-96, averaging 20 points per game.
Despite his performance on the court, in 1997 Sean was diagnosed with focal segmental glomerular sclerosis, a progressive kidney disorder. Determined to beat the disease, Elliott asked his doctor about treatment options. Elliott was fortunate to learn that his brother, Noel, matched the criteria for donating a kidney to him. After starting all 50 games in the Spurs' 1998-99 championship season, helping the Spurs to win their first NBA title, Elliott underwent a successful kidney transplant.
Elliott announced his retirement in 2001. He finished his career averaging 14.2 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 2.6 assists per game. After retiring, Elliott became a basketball analyst for The NBA on NBC and, during the 2003–2004 season, for ABC Sports and ESPN. He left that position for the 2004–2005 season and became the color commentator for the Spurs' local broadcasting. On January 5, 2013, he joined Fox Sports 1, calling his first college basketball game with the network.
