Warriors consultant Steve Nash will be inducted into Hall of Fame

Grant Hill, Steve Nash, and Jason Kidd are the first three members of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame class of 2018, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The trio will be joined by Maurice Cheeks.

Kidd's 12,091 assists sit behind only John Stockton for most in league history.

Kidd, who was sacked as the Milwaukee Bucks head coach this season, played for the Suns from 1996-2001 and averaged 14.4 points, 9.7 assists and 6.4 rebounds over five years in the Valley. Formal announcement comes at Final Four weekend. Nash now serves as general manager of the Canadian national team, and has a minor player development role with the Golden State Warriors. He began his career with the Detroit Pistons from 1994-2000, making the NBA All-Star game in his first four seasons and averaging 21.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game in six years with Detroit.

A 12-time All-Star, Kidd won the 2011 NBA Championship as a member of the Mavs.

Hill teamed with Nash from 2007-2012. He also was named Pac-10 Freshman of the Year in 1993 and Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1994 during his two seasons at California. Kidd posted 12.6 points, 8.7 assists, and 6.3 rebounds throughout his 19-year National Basketball Association career.

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.

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.

All three former All-Stars are now first ballot Hall of Famers after the December change in policy that altered the time frame from retirement to Hall of Fame eligibility to three years, from five.
