Kidd, Nash, Hill, Cheeks make Hall of Fame

Phoenix Suns Grant Hill runs the length of the court in the third quarter of an NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves Tuesday

Former Detroit Pistons forward Grand Hill will be part of the 2018 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame Class, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

An official announcement of the inductees in the Class of 2018 will come at the Final Four in San Antonio this weekend.

He was drafted by Detroit, third overall in the 1994 NBA Draft. Defense is the name of the game this year as Kidd, Nash and Cheeks are among some of the best defending guards in National Basketball Association league history. During his illustrious career, Nash played six seasons with the Dallas Mavericks, 10 with the Phoenix Suns, and had a two-year stint with the Los Angeles Lakers before his retirement in 2015. Nash, one of 12 players to win two MVP awards, was an eight-time All-Star. He played 1,026 games, averaging 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists. Kidd suited up for the Suns and New Jersey Nets, too. Hill was a seven-time All-Star and co-Rookie of the Year with Kidd in 1994-95. For his career, Kidd ranks second all-time in both assists (12,091) and steals (2,684), behind only John Stockton in both categories, and fifth all-time in minutes played (50,111). He earned four first-team All-Defensive team honors and four All-Star appearances with the Philadelphia 76ers.
