Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Grant Hill are among those who will headline the class of 2018 inducted into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame's Class of 2018.

Former Philadelphia 76ers guard and current Oklahoma City Thunder assistant Maurice Cheeks will join the trio as part of this star-studded group.

While the formal announcement won't come until this weekend during the Final Four in San Antonio, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski of the inductions. His 90.4 percent free-throw percentage is an National Basketball Association record, having also led the league in assists on five separate occasions.

Kidd and Nash rank second and third, respectively, in career assists. 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 ultimately finished with 10,335 assists and is ninth all-time with 8.5 assists per game.

It's unclear if Grant Hill will be inducted as a Detroit Pistons player.

Kidd was named NBA Rookie of the year during the 1994-95 season to start off a 19-year career in which he spent time with the Mavericks, Suns, Nets, and Knicks. Still, during a 19-year career, he made seven All-Star appearances and was an All-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97. Nash, one of 12 players to win two MVP awards, was an eight-time All-Star. He won a ring with Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry, and the 2011 Dallas Mavericks (apologies to still-salty Heat and LeBron fans).

Cheeks played 14 seasons in the league and established himself as one of the best passing point guards during his time with the Sixers, as well as a savvy defensive hawk with career averages of 11 points, 6.7 assists, and 2.1 steals.
