Cheeks is now an assistant coach for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Scott, who was selected by the veterans committee, was the first African-American scholarship athlete at North Carolina, where he helped the Tar Heels to back-to-back Final Four appearances.

Kidd, a 10-time NBA All-Star in his 18 campaigns, won an NBA crown with Dallas in 2011.
