By Rod Beard The Detroit News Published 10:54 AM EDT Apr 6, 2019 The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame looks like it won’t have a decided Detroit flavor in its 2019 class. Former Pistons Ben Wallace and Chris Webber are finalists for the honor, but did not make the final cut, according to a report by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. An official announcement of the new members to be enshrined is expected Saturday at the Final Four in Minneapolis but Wojnarowski posted on Twitter that Sidney Moncrief, Bobby Jones, Vlade Divac and Paul Westphal were among those selected. Other selections include Chuck Cooper, who was the first black player drafted in the NBA, and Al Attles — a player, coach and executive with the Golden State Warriors — who was selected as a contributor.

Wallace played a tournament at the Ponte Vedra Beach course during his American college stint, while Bjerregaard says he was 16 or 17 when he contested a junior tournament there. They return as two of the brightest prospects in European golf -- Wallace a three-times winner on the European Tour last year while Bjerregaard won the Dunhill Links at St. Andrews. Wallace has an intense demeanour on course somewhat reminiscent of compatriot Ian Poulter, something that can be seen in a photo he posted on Twitter at the Arnold Palmer Invitational last Sunday.
