Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill Chosen for Basketball Hall of Fame

Grant Hill has been notified of his induction into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2018, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The eight-time All-Star also averaged 14.3 points per game during an 18-year career with the Suns, Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. Nash now serves as general manager of the Canadian national team, and has a minor player development role with the Golden State Warriors.

An official announcement of the inductees in the Class of 2018 will come at the Final Four in San Antonio this weekend. He won an NBA Championship with Dallas in 2011.

Kidd and Nash rank second and third, respectively, in career assists.

The enshrinement ceremony is scheduled for September 7 in Springfield, Mass.

The 1995 NBA rookie of the year made seven All Star teams and earned one All NBA first team selection despite a career ravaged with injuries.

The standard fare will be just the normal gas engine, while Toyota will also offer the same engine mated to its hybrid system. The new hybrid features a sport-tuned suspension along with improved shock absorbers and springs.

Nash was the NBA's MVP in 2005 and 2006 while leading the Phoenix Suns at point guard. He spanned his career as a member of the Detroit Pistons, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, and Los Angeles Clippers, racking up seven NBA All-Star appearances, four All-NBA Second-team honors and one All-NBA First team honors.

Hill earned two national titles at Duke and was also a two-time American while playing for the Blue Devils.

Joining them will be Maurice Cheeks. When Cheeks retired in 1993, he was the all-time leader in steals.

It is unclear whether any of the other nine finalists, who include Ray Allen, Chris Webber and Rudy Tomjanovich, were selected for the Hall of Fame.
