Former NBA players Grant Hill, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Maurice Cheeks have been elected to the Hall of Fame, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 2018 Basketball Hall of Fame class is going to be a great one.

He was drafted by Detroit, third overall in the 1994 NBA Draft.

ESPN reports the trio has been notified that they will be inducted, but the formal announcement will come at a Final Four news conference in San Antonio this weekend. For his career (1994-2013), the versatile forward averaged 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game. Ray Allen, who holds the record for most 3-pointers in National Basketball Association history, was also on that list, but it is not yet known if he will be inducted this year. He won an NBA Championship with Dallas in 2011. 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 was a two-time MVP, eight-time All-Star, and seven-time All-NBA selection.

This allowed Nash, who hung up his boots in 2015, to join Kidd and Hill who each retired in 2015 in the 2018 class.

It's unclear if Grant Hill will be inducted as a Detroit Pistons player. He was Kidd's backup with the Suns for two seasons before finding success with Mavericks.

Hill finished his career with seven All-Star appearances, First Team All-NBA honors in 1996-97 and was the Rookie of the Year.

Cheeks averaged 11.1 points and 2.1 steals per game and was the starting point guard for the 1983 champion Philadelphia 76ers.
