ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (duh) shared the news on Twitter late Wednesday morning. He began his career with the Detroit Pistons from 1994-2000, making the NBA All-Star game in his first four seasons and averaging 21.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game in six years with Detroit. He led the National Basketball Association in total assists six times over the course of eight years between 2004 and 2012. He averaged 12.6 points per game over 19 seasons with the New Jersey Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks.
The Oakland native and former second-overall pick had 12,091 assists and is eighth all-time with 8.7 assists per game.
Kidd was the Pac-10 (before the conference expanded) Freshman of the Year in 1993, Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1994 and was a consensus All-American the same year. Still, during a 19-year career, he made seven All-Star appearances and was an All-NBA first team honoree in 1996-97.
Cheeks, a longtime coach, is being inducted for his contributions as a player. None played more than two seasons with Dallas nor had impacts in the city of the caliber of Nash and Kidd.
