NEW YORK, April 26 (UPI) -- Phoenix swingman Grant Hill was voted the winner of the Joe Dumars Trophy, given to the NBA player who reflects the ideals of sportsmanship.

Hill was listed first on 96 of the 315 ballots of sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NBA, the league said Monday. Players received five points for a first-place mention, three for second and one for third. Hill totaled 2,485 points.

Denver's Chauncey Billups, with 79 first-place votes and 2,155 points, was second and Boston's Ray Allen (1,983) was third.

Hill, who also won the award in 2004 and 2008, is the first three-time recipient of the NBA's sportsmanship award.
