Former Celtics great Kevin Garnett will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday night, and another Celtics star from the title-winning 2008 team isn’t far behind.

The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn reports Paul Pierce will be inducted as a member of the Class of 2021, which will be unveiled on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. ET on ESPN.
