It’s a very Dirk-centric class as well, as Dirk will be inducted alongside San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, longtime Spurs guard Tony Parker, and former Heat rival Dwayne Wade.
Former Laker Pau Gasol, and WNBA legend and current head coach of the Los Angeles Aces Becky Hammon will also be inducted as well.
Per ESPN, the enshrinement in Springfield, Massachusetts, is scheduled for August 12.
