The Basketball Hall of Fame will announce Thursday afternoon that it will move this year's enshrinement date from mid-September to Aug. 13 in anticipation of the 1992 Dream Team being among the inductees of the Class of 2010, a league source said.

The official list of finalists will be announced Feb. 12, but the men's team that won Olympic gold in Barcelona for the United States and featured superstars Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Charles Barkley undoubtedly will be included in that select group.

Two other Dream Team stars, Scottie Pippen and Karl Malone, also will be eligible for induction this year for the first time.

The shift to August was made, in part, to eliminate a conflict with the world championships, which will be held in Istanbul from Aug. 28 to Sept. 12. In fact, USA Basketball hopes to fly in the current U.S. team to Springfield to be present for the Dream Team's induction.

Assembling the Dream Team alumni normally would be a tall order. However, Jordan likely will want to be in attendance to support his former Bulls teammate Pippen, and former Jazz point guard and Dream Team alumnus John Stockton will want to be on hand to celebrate Malone, his former Jazz teammate.
