Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill to enter Basketball Hall of Fame

Grant Hill Steve Nash and Jason Kidd sharing the court at the same time

Point guards Jason Kidd and Steve Nash will both be inducted this year, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported.

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.

Joining them will be Maurice Cheeks.

Kidd had 12,091 assists and is eighth all-time with 8.7 assists per game. The trio are expected to be formally announced during the NCAA Men's Tournament's Final Four weekend. The Dallas Mavericks picked him one spot before Hill in the 1994 draft, and he played two stints in Dallas and won a championship in 2011.

A native of San Francisco, Kidd spent 21 years in the Association with the Mavericks, Suns, New Jersey Nets and New York Knicks.




A seven-time All-Star, the native of Dallas was a member of the gold medal-winning United States of America team at the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics. Players were tuning Kidd out-or already had last season, according to one source with close ties to the team.

Hill averaged 16.7 points per game in more than 1,000 National Basketball Association contests after a prolific college career at Duke.

Cheeks averaged 11.1 points and 2.1 steals per game and was the starting point guard for the 1983 champion Philadelphia 76ers. None played more than two seasons with Dallas nor had impacts in the city of the caliber of Nash and Kidd.

Nash played for the Mavs from 1998-2004, winning an MVP during the 2004-05 season and then again the following season with the Phoenix Suns. When Beck asked about it, the former coach denied it, maintaining that "as a player, it's the golden rule: You never practice on a back-to-back".
