Westphal, Moncrief, Jones make Hall

Ben Wallace Belongs in the Hall of Fame

The Suns initially acquired Westphal, along with two second-round picks, from the Celtics on May 23, 1975 in exchange for Charlie Scott, who was enshrined into the Basketball Hall of Fame past year.

Moncrief, who played alongside Sikma with the Bucks from 1986-89, also reached the Final Four in his final season at Arkansas, where he was coached by Eddie Sutton.

Eight of the 12 inductees played in the NBA: Divac, Sikma, Moncrief, Westphal, Attles, Jones, Braun, and Cooper - the latter was the first African-American to be drafted by an NBA team, the Boston Celtics, in 1950. Moncrief was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year and a five-time All-Defensive team choice.

In addition to his time as a player, Westphal was an National Basketball Association head coach for parts of 10 seasons with the Suns (1992-1996), SuperSonics (1998-2001) and Kings (2009-2012).

The Class of 2019 was announced today in Minneapolis prior to the NCAA Men's Final Four.

Also included in the class of 2019 is Jack Sikma.

Among players who didn't make the cut are Chris Webber, Ben Wallace, Marques Johnson and Tim Hardaway.

Divac and Co. will be enshrined into the Basketball Hall on September 5-7 in Springfield, Mass.

Westphal won the NBA's Comeback Player of the Year following the 1982-83 season with the New York Knicks.

Cooper and Braun are recognized posthumously.

When asked in 2016 by The Undefeated about his key for working for the Warriors so long, Attles said, "They haven't caught up to me yet".

Westphal, 68, was a five-time NBA All-Star and four-time All-NBA player as a guard, mostly with the Phoenix Suns. Following his retirement in 1984, Westphal coached the Suns, the Seattle SuperSonics and the Sacramento Kings, accruing a 318-279 regular-season record. He played eight seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers, two with the Charlotte Hornets and six with the Sacramento Kings, averaging 11.8 points and 8.2 rebounds. Attles was voted into the Hall of Fame as a contributor. He played for the Philadelphia Warriors from 1960-71 and later was a coach, executive and ambassador for the organization. He made five All-Star teams and was chosen five times to the All-NBA squad. Jones started his career in Denver when the Nuggets were in the ABA and he made the ABA All-Star team, All-Rookie Team, and two times was on the league's All-Defensive Team. He was an NBA All-Star in 2001 and was named to the FIBA Hall of Fame in 2010.

Sikma led his team to the NAIA Tournament at Kemper Arena three times, including in 1977 when he averaged 15 rebounds in three games.

After he was officially selected, Jones told NBATV what he remembered about that 1983 Sixers team.
