NEW YORK CITY — Three former Montana college basketball players were selected Saturday in the 2019 NBA G League draft, the developmental arm of the National Basketball Association.
Former Montana State Bobcat Tyler Hall, who set the Big Sky Conference career scoring record last January, was taken fourth overall by the Westchester Knicks. Hall spent time with the Chicago Bulls during the NBA Summer League this past June and July, but was not offered an NBA contract.
MSU teammate Keljin Blevins was selected 15th overall by the Northern Arizona Suns. As a four-year senior, Blevins averaged 11.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for the Bobcats. He most recently spent time in training camp with the Portland Trail Blazers.
In the third round, the Agua Caliente Clippers selected former MSU Billings forward Zack Rollins. Rollins played two years with the Yellowjackets, earning honorable mention all-GNAC each season. He is originally from Pelham, N.Y.
