Jarrett Jack, G League vet Donta Hall to serve as player-mentors for Ignite

Two more veterans will serve as player-mentors for the young G League Ignite squad.

Ignite has tapped sixteen-year NBA pro Jarrett Jack and 2020 NBA G League All-Rookie Team member Donta Hall for the upcoming season this February.

They will serve as mentors both on and off the court to the Ignite team that has Kai Sotto, Jalen Green, Isaiah Todd, Daishen Nix, Jonathan Kuminga, and Princepal Singh.

Also in the team are veterans Brandon Ashley, Bobby Brown, Cody Demps, Reggie Hearn, and Amir Johnson.

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.
