Attles, 82, will be inducted into the Hall of Fame as a contributor, according to ESPN's The Undefeated.

Jones spent the final eight seasons of his career playing for the Philadelphia 76ers and made two more All-Star teams, while solidifying himself as one of the NBA's premier defenders.

Moncrief was a five-time All-Star and two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year in the mid-1980s for the Bucks, who lost in the Eastern Conference finals three times during his career.

Attles spent the entirety of his 11-year playing career with the Warriors, back when the reigning National Basketball Association champions were based in Philadelphia. Now an analyst for CBS Sports, Webber quickly sent Divac a congratulatory message after the announcement in Minneapolis at the Final Four.

Al Attles was a selection from the Contributor Committee.

"He's a player who's totally selfless, who runs like a deer, jumps like a gazelle, plays with his head and heart each night, and then walks away from the court as if nothing happened", said Julius "Dr.J" Erving. The five-time NBA All Star was a part of the Celtics' 1973-74 championship roster. He is a member of the Phoenix Suns Ring of Honor. He was a seventh-round pick of the Philadelphia Warriors in 1960 and played his first two seasons for the Warriors in Philadelphia before they moved to the San Francisco area. In 695 games with Milwaukee, Moncrief averaged 15.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists per contest.

Usually, the closer to the end of a player's career the better their chances are to make the Hall of Fame, as their play is still fresh in people's minds. An All-American at Duquesne, he played six seasons, averaging 6.7 ppg.

Attles played for the Philadelphia/San Francisco Warriors before coaching the San Francisco/Golden State Warriors for 14 seasons, including the franchise's title-winning 1974-75 campaign. He was a member of the 76ers' championship squad in 1983.
