The New York Post is reporting that former Tennessee Vol great Bernard King will be announced as a member of the NBA's Hall of Fame on Monday.

The Post quoted a source who said King's spot in the class of 2013 would be announced at the Final Four on Monday in Atlanta, where King now lives.

King starred at Tennessee in the 70's with Ernie Grunfeld in a duo nicknamed "The Ernie and Bernie Show".  The Vols won two SEC titles during their playing days.

King was the seventh overall pick in the 1977 draft, going to the New Jersey Nets.  He spent half his NBA career with the New York Knicks, averaging more than 26 points a game.

Bernard was a four-time NBA All-Star and led the league in scoring in 1985 with 32.9 points a game.

His jersey was retired at Tennessee in a ceremony in 2007 and hangs from the rafters at Thompson-Boling Arena.
