Grant Hill to enter Basketball Hall of Fame

Jason Kidd, Steve Nash and Grant Hill have each been notified that they will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, according to a report from ESPN.

Kidd and Nash have been known as some of the best passers of the '90s and early 2000s, both leading the league in assists five times and dominating the passing game for the better part of an entire decade. Not only that, but being an 8-time All-Star and 7-time All-NBA player makes this an easy choice for the Hall of Fame.

The formal announcement will come during this Final Four weekend.

In 10 seasons with the Suns, Nash averaged 14.4 points, 9.4 assists and shot 50.4 percent from the field, 43.5 percent from three and 90.7 percent from the free throw line.

Kidd and Stockton rank second and third in career assists behind only fellow Hall of Famer John Stockton. The Canadian point guard and eight-time NBA All-Star out of Santa Clara also played for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2012-15 after being traded from Phoenix. Kidd won a title with the Mavericks in 2011. He won gold medals with the United States at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and Beijing Olympics in 2008.

Hill would be named the ACC Player of the Year in his senior season for Duke. He still made seven All-Star appearances and was an all-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97.

Four-time All-Star Maurice Cheeks and longtime National Basketball Association league office and team executive Rod Thorn will also be among those inducted, according to ESPN. When Cheeks retired in 1993, he was the all-time leader in steals.

Asked what the honor would mean to him, Allen said: "It would be the culmination of my whole life, everything coming together".
