Report: Grant Hill, Jason Kidd, Steve Nash in 2018 Hall of Fame class

Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Grant Hill are among those who will headline the class of 2018 inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame's Class of 2018.

The trio will be joined by Maurice Cheeks. He ranks right behind Kidd in all-time assists (10,335).

Hill, a first-round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 1994, averaged 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the trio have been alerted to their impending enshrinement ahead of a formal announcement made in San Antonio during the Final Four. He also averaged 14.3 points per game during an 18-year career with the Suns, Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. He earned four first-team All-Defensive team honors and four All-Star appearances with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Kidd and Nash respectively rank second and third in career assists in National Basketball Association history, trailing only John Stockton.

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. He was named Co-Rookie of the Year in 1995, alongside fellow Hall of Famer, Kidd.

Hill teamed with Nash from 2007-2012.

Jason Kidd is undoubtedly one of the greatest passers in the history of the game, and controlled the game from the point guard position in mercurial fashion over his 19 year career. When Cheeks retired in 1993, he was the all-time leader in steals.

He was selected to 10 NBA All-Star games before venturing into coaching where he was the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks.

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.
