A six-time NBA champion and Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen thinks his former Chicago Bulls teammate Toni Kukoc deserves to be Hall of Famer.

“I definitely think he deserves it. He was a huge piece for us. You look at the game today, teams have the Big Three now. Toni was a part of that puzzle for us. He was productive and deserves a lot of credit for our success,” Pippen said, per the Chicago Tribune.

During his NBA career Kukoc averaged 11.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
