Devon Hall, an accomplished shooting guard hailing from Virginia, is joining the Oklahoma City Thunder fold. He signed a two-way agreement with the team, making this his first entry into the NBA.
The OKC Thunder actually had Hall as their fifty-third pick in the NBA Draft on 2018. But he did not agree to enter into a contract with them. Rather, he went on to join Cairns Taipans, a member of Australia’s National Basketball League.

Hall boasted an average of 2.5 assists, 4.4 rebounds, and 9.2 points across 28 games. Prior to traveling back to the U.S. for the NBA’s Summer League, the previous season saw him shooting 34% from the perimeter and 36% from the field.
The Thunder gave Hall a difficult time, but he managed a 35% field goal across five games. The two-way Hall signed will allow him to play with the Thunder for a maximum of 45 days. He will stay with the OKC Blue, the affiliate from G-League, for the remainder of the season.
Marial Shayok, another ex-Virginia player, also entered into a two-way agreement this season. He teamed up with the Philadelphia 76ers. The season will begin in October, with the preseason starting in the same month’s onset.
