Virginia basketball’s Devon Hall invited to NBA combine

Hall will have a chance to improve his draft stock.

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Virginia vs Clemson Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA Combine kicks off in one week in Chicago, and Virginia alum Devon Hall got one of the coveted invites to the event. The combine, much like its NFL counterpart, is designed to test out players both physically and mentally to gauge their readiness to take the next step in the pros.

The combine will measure standing reach, height without shoes, wingspan, standing vertical leap, max vertical leap, shuttle run, lane agility, three-quarter sprint, NBA break left/right shooting %, NBA corner left/right shooting %, NBA top key shooting %, and on the move 15 shooting %. Participants will also play five-on-five games.

A portion of the event will be televised as ESPN2 will air coverage from 3-7pm on May 17 and 18.

Devon performed exceptionally well at the recent Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, earning a place on the All-Tournament team and helping his team finsih third place in the event. He averaged 17.3 points per game (7th overall), 5.7 rebounds (26th), 3.3 assists (10th), and 1.7 steals (5th) on 35.3 minutes played per game (most overall) in the tournament, helping bolster his NBA stock and most likely earn him the invitation.

In his final season at Virginia, Hall averaged 11.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 45% from the field and 43% from three. His 3.3 assist-to-turnover ratio was best in the ACC during conference play this past season. Hall earned spots on both the All-ACC Second Team and All-ACC Defensive Team and was on the ACC All-Tournament team as he helped the Hoos hoist the ACC championship trophy for the first time since 2014.

Hall is one of 69 college players invited to the event that spans May 16-20. He is one of 10 ACC players attending and will be joined by Grayson Allen (Duke), Marvin Bagley III (Duke), Tyus Battle (Syracuse), Bruce Brown Jr. (Miami), Wendell Carter (Duke), Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech), Jerome Robinson (Boston College), Gary Trent Jr. (Duke), and Lonnie Walker IV (Miami).
