The Basketball Hall of Fame announces the class of 2018

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

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 the trio is Maurice Cheeks, former 76ers guard and current Thunder assistant.

Kidd had 12,091 assists and is eighth all-time with 8.7 assists per game.

He was drafted by Detroit, third overall in the 1994 NBA Draft. The trio are expected to be formally announced during the NCAA Men's Tournament's Final Four weekend.

In Pistons history, Hill is ninth all-time in points and fourth in points per game (21.6). Nash now serves as general manager of the Canadian national team, and has a minor player development role with the Golden State Warriors.

A 12-time All-Star, Kidd won the 2011 NBA Championship as a member of the Mavs. Players were tuning Kidd out-or already had last season, according to one source with close ties to the team. 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. When he retired in 1993, he led the National Basketball Association in career steals with 2,310.

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. He still made seven All-Star appearances and was an all-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97. He scored 17,387 points and totaled 10,335 assists across his career.

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.
