Ahead of February’s single-site slate, NBA G League Ignite has bolstered its roster with the addition of NBA and G League veterans Jarrett Jack and Donta Hall, the team announced today.
A seasoned point guard with nearly 900 appearances at the NBA level, Jack’s career includes stops with the Portland Trail Blazers, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, New Orleans Hornets, Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks. He averaged 10.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.9 rebounds across his 14-year NBA career, which includes playoff appearances with New Orleans, Golden State and Brooklyn. Jack spent the 2019-20 season with the NBA G League’s Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging 15.6 points and 5.1 assists.
Hall was voted to the 2020 NBA G League All-Rookie Team and earned Second Team All-NBA G League and All-Defensive honors after averaging 15.4 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 38 games with the Grand Rapids Drive in his first professional season. The standout forward from the University of Alabama was called up for a 10-day contract with the Pistons last February, appearing in four games for Detroit.
Next month’s competition will mark a return to single-site competition at Disney for Hall, who joined the Brooklyn Nets for six games in the 2020 NBA restart, where he averaged 6.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks.
Hall and Jack will train with Ignite onsite in Walnut Creek, Calif. before the team takes to the court at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla. beginning in February.
