A source confirmed Thursday that Gary Payton will be named Monday to the Basketball Hall of Fame at the Final Four in Atlanta.
The guard had his greatest seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics. However, he won his only NBA title with the Miami Heat in 2006, and could become the first former Heat player in the Hall of Fame at the Sept. 8 induction ceremonies.
The source also confirmed Payton will choose as his presenters for the induction ceremony in Springfield, Mass., Hall of Fame guards John Stockton and George Gervin. Payton had revealed that choice last November to FOX Sports Florida for whenever he would be enshrined.
