Two MSU Basketball Players Drafted in the G League
Even though there aren't currently any Montana State Bobcats basketball players in the NBA but there could be one soon.
The NBA G League is a developmental league that helps players that are just on the cusp of making an NBA roster but need a little bit more work.
The G League just had their annual draft and not one but two Montana State Bobcat players were drafted in the first round.
Tyler Hall, who has the MSU and Big Sky records for most points in a career, was drafted 4th overall to the Westchester Knicks(affiliated by the New York Knicks). Tyler Hall also spent some time in the summer league with the Chicago Bulls.

The great thing about them playing in the G League is that they could get called up to by their NBA team if they crush their competition.
We wish them the best of luck and maybe we will see them soon in the NBA.
