Donta Hall to Join the G League Ignite Team as a Veteran

Donta Hall has agreed to join the G League Ignite team as a veteran player, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.

The 23-year-old went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft, after impressing at the University of Alabama. Following the conclusion of the draft, Hall played with the Detroit Pistons’ Summer League team. His impressive Summer League performances earned him an Exhibit-10 deal.

He later joined the Pistons’ G League affiliate as a two-way player. In his debut season in the professional ranks, Hall played in 38 G League contests for the Grand Rapids Drive. In those games, he averaged 15.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 1.4 blocks. This was on 66.9% shooting from the field.

For the back-end of the 2019-20 NBA season, he signed with the Brooklyn Nets in the Disney World, Orlando bubble. Hall showed his growth, averaging 6.6 points and 4.6 rebounds, on 77.8% shooting. This was while playing 17 minutes per contest.

During the 2019-20 season, he played 4 games with the Pistons and 5 games with the Nets. The 6-foot-9 power forward is an explosive athlete who uses his natural ability to secure rebounds on both ends of the floor and dominate around the rim.

The G League Ignite team is a developmental team aimed towards preparing top prospects for the 2021 NBA Draft. The team’s inaugural line-up features Jalen Green, Jonathan Kuminga, Isaiah Todd, Kai Sotto, Daishen Nix, and Princepal Singh.

Not only will these prospects face poised, professional G League teams as they fulfill the NBA’s “one and done” requirement, they will be mentored by experienced professionals and veterans as well.

Hall will bolster the veteran side of things and will have the chance to guide the NBA’s soon-coming stars on their path to the professional level. This will be alongside fellow veterans Amir Johnson, Bobby Brown, Brandon Ashley, Cody Demps, and Reggie Hearn.
