The NBA is taking really seriously the development of the young players in the G-League Ignite Team. The roster coached by Brian Shaw features potential top picks in the 2021 NBA Draft, and it has now added a veteran to help their development.
Marc Stein from the NY Times reported Donta Hall will join the G-League Ignite team as one of its veterans.

Last season, Hall started for the Grand City Rapids from the G-League, posting big numbers averaging 15.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 1.4 blocks per game.
Hall earned a call-up to Detroit before later signing with the Nets to play for Brooklyn in the NBA bubble at Orlando.
The G-League Ignite is expected to compete in a 'bubble-style' tournament in February 2021, which will feature 18 teams.
