With the elections of Nash, Kidd, Hill and Scott, the Suns will total 10 former players inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as players.

Steve Nash, Jason Kidd and Grant Hill - and former Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks - are among the 13-member class that will be inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in September. He's Canada's greatest NBA player ever and he got the HOF resume with those MVPs, being an eight-time NBA All-Star, and being three-time All-NBA First Team member. "I would like to thank the Hall of Fame for doing this". Hill won two NCAA titles at Duke and seven NBA All-Star selections.

The other inductees include longtime college coach Charles "Lefty" Driesell, WNBA star Tina Thompson, NBA executive Rick Welts, black women's basketball and tennis pioneer Ora Mae Washington and European star and ex-Celtic Dino Radja.

Nash and Kidd were two of the greatest point guards of their generation.

Cheeks played 15 seasons in the National Basketball Association, including 11 for the 76ers, whom he helped win the 1983 National Basketball Association title. Across his almost two-decade career, Kidd amassed 12,091 assists (8.7 apg) and 2,684 steals (1.93 spg) and still ranks second among the NBA's all-time leaders in both categories. Kidd earned 10 All-Star selections. However, if you want the resume he's an NBA champion (2011 Dallas Mavericks), five-time All-NBA First Team, four-times All-Defensive First Team, a 10-time NBA All-Star, and the 1995 NBA Co-Rookie of the Year. Cheeks, best known as a point guard for the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1980s and then as a head coach for three franchises, played briefly for the Knicks and Nets.

Kidd played nearly five seasons with the Suns. As complete a point guard as there has been, he ranks second in league history in assists (12,091), second in steals (2,684) and ninth in 3-point field goals (1,988).
