MILWAUKEE -- Former Milwaukee Bucks stars Marques Johnson, Sidney Moncrief and Jack Sikma were named finalists for the 2019 Basketball Hall of Fame class.

Johnson spent the first seven seasons of his 11-year NBA career with the Bucks and is due to have his No. 8 jersey retired by the Bucks on March 24. Moncrief spent 10 seasons in Milwaukee, retired for one season and then came out of retirement to play one season with the Hawks. Both Johnson and Moncrief were Top 5 picks by the Bucks in 1977 and 1979 NBA Drafts, respectively.

Sikma, on the other hand, ended his career with the Bucks. After nine years with the Seattle SuperSonics, the center finished his NBA career with five seasons in Milwaukee. Read more here.
