Pro Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020 announced

On Saturday, the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2020 was announced. As reported by ESPN, eight individuals make up the class including the star-studded trio of Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and Kevin Garnett.

Here are six former notable NBA players that will be eligible for enshrinement for the first time in 2021. Unlike this year’s class where the three aforementioned players were obvious first-ballot choices, next year’s class only has Paul Pierce as being likely to be enshrined on the first ballot. Players who will be eligible for the first time were found at Not In The Hall of Fame.

1

Monta Ellis (Warriors 2005-12, Bucks 2012-13, Mavericks 2013-15, Pacers 2015-17)

The 2006-07 Most Improved Player, Ellis was one of the most productive players to never appear in an All-Star Game with career totals of 14,858 points, 3,856 assists, and 1,409 steals.

2

David Lee (Knicks 2005-10, Warriors 2010-15, Celtics 2015-15, Mavericks 2016, Spurs 2016-17)

A two-time All-Star, Lee had four seasons averaging double figures in rebounding and twice averaged over 20 points per contest.
