Jason Kidd, Steve Nash, Grant Hill and Maurice Cheeks will be inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2018, according to a report from ESPN.

They'll join Dennis Rodman, Alex English and Adrian Dantley as the only former Mavs players to be in the Hall of Fame.

The Oakland native and former second-overall pick had 12,091 assists and is eighth all-time with 8.7 assists per game.

Hill would be named the ACC Player of the Year in his senior season for Duke. The Dallas Mavericks picked him one spot before Hill in the 1994 draft, and he played two stints in Dallas and won a championship in 2011.

The 10-time All-Star - three of those came in Phoenix - also spent time with the Dallas Mavericks (1994-96, 2008-12), New Jersey Nets (2001-08) and New York Knicks (2012-13).

In each of the nine seasons between 2001-02 and 2009-10, Nash was the catalyst behind the team that led the league in offensive efficiency.

Hill had arguably his best National Basketball Association days in Detroit, playing for the Pistons between 1994 and 2000, being selected to the All-Star game five times in a Pistons (teal) jersey.

Despite a career marred by injuries, Hill averaged 16.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game through 18 years in the league.

Cheeks collected 11.1 points, 6.7 assists and 2.1 steals per game during his 15-year career. He was Kidd's backup with the Suns for two seasons before finding success with Mavericks.

He is now a player development coach for the Golden State Warriors. Nash now serves as general manager of the Canadian national team, and has a minor player development role with the Golden State Warriors.
