2018 rookie selection Devon Hall will join Lugentz Dort as the second of the OKC Thunder two-way deals this 2019-20 season.

With the reposition and replenish era the focus for the OKC Thunder moving forward, General Manager Sam Presti will continue to seek young assets for the future of the franchise. Part and parcel of that objective will include assessing existing talents on the team.

A year ago the Thunder picked up three rookies in the 2018 draft including wing Hamidou Diallo (selected 45th by Brooklyn Nets and traded to OKC), guard Devon Hall (53rd pick), and multi front court positional player Kevin Hervey (drafted 57th).

Earlier this summer, Presti nabbed undrafted Canadian guard Lugentz Dort and signed him to a two-way contract. Throughout the 2019 NBA Las Vegas, Summer League fans wondered if one of the youngsters would be earmarked to fill the second of the clubs two-way contracts. Nothing occurred in the days following the Vegas tournament which presumably meant the franchise wanted to continue assessing the talent.

Hall spent the past season in playing for  Cairns Taipans of the  National Basketball League in Australia. In 19 starts and 28 appearances, the guard averaged 9.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists in 28.9 minutes per game.

The Thunder wanted Hall to develop his game and focus on his shooting efficiency and playmaking skills. With his NBL team Hall registered 36 percent field goal efficiency, 75 percent from the free-throw line and 34 percent from 3-point range. Upon his return, the Thunder inked Hall to the OKC Blue to finish out the G-League season.

During the Summer League, the University of Virginia product posted a stat line of 7.4 points, one assist and one steal in 21.6 minutes over his five appearances.
