Multiple reports say Sonics great Gary Payton is heading to the Basketball Hall of Fame.  Payton is reportedly a unanimous selection.  GP played 13 seasons in Seattle.

Payton has won an NBA title with the Miami Heat in 2006.  He's also earned two Olympic gold medals from the 1996 & 2000 USA teams.

An official announcement comes Monday. The enshrinement ceremony is September 8th.
