Grant Hill to be inducted into Basketball Hall of Fame, report

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

The marquee members of the 2018 Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame class have been released, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Hill has previously been inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame in 2014, but he'll now receive the game's highest honor, having starred not only for the Duke Blue Devils while in college, but over an 18-year NBA career.

Maurice Cheeks will also join the heralded trio in Springfield.

Kidd ranks second in league history with 12,091 assists.

Yermakov earlier said Russian Federation is willing to cooperate with Britain as long as it shares all findings of the probe. Mr Johnson said: "We do not wish to engage in a new Cold War and I deprecate that term".

Kidd was named NBA Rookie of the year during the 1994-95 season to start off a 19-year career in which he spent time with the Mavericks, Suns, Nets, and Knicks. The full class of inductees will be officially announced Saturday in San Antonio in conjunction with the Final Four. Three years after retiring from the NBA, the father of three divides his time among the Warriors, his work as a movie producer and being the general manager of the Canadian national team. Nash last played in 2014, while Kidd and Hill last played in 2013.

In a 19-year career with the Suns, Mavericks and Lakers, Nash was an eight-time All-Star, three-time All-NBA first team selection and two-time MVP.

The duo brought seven assists titles to the Phoenix Suns organization despite never crossing paths and took the assist crown in 10 years out of a 13-year span from 1998 to 2011.

Jason Kidd was sacked by the Bucks as head coach in January and he's in the midst of his longest period away from basketball in his entire adult life. Making the All-Star team four times, along with being selected four times as a first-team All-NBA defensive player cemented Cheeks' reputation on the defensive side of the ball.
