NBA Comparison: Rodney McGruder

Strengths: Hall is a prospect who comes to the draft with experience after developing each season with the well-coached and disciplined Virginia program … Has a strong build, and at 6’6 also has solid height for a guard/wing … Projects as a player who can play up to 3 positions, thanks to his size and skill set … Smart and fundamentally sound, as you should expect from a Virginia player, and rarely makes bonehead decisions on the court … 3:1 A:TO, and has solid floor vision and timing as a passer … Plays good defense, will earn his time on the court by being a smart team defender who has the strength to defend every perimeter position …Will make winning plays, contributes in areas that may not show up in the boxscore … Fluid more than explosive, but has adequate athleticism … Can be groomed into a 3-and-D wing, has promise as a spot up shooter from the corner … Is to be commended for how much he improved from year to year throughout his career, a testament to hard work and attention to detail … Became a knockdown shooter by his Sr. year, making 43% of his 3s …

Weaknesses: Not a big scoring threat, and is more of a methodical offensive player than an explosive one …Though Hall improved as a shooter, he can bit streaky and doesn’t possess natural shot making skills … Not the most imaginative shot creator, mostly of a straight-line slasher and lacking quickness … Tough to see him being a great finisher in the NBA (shot 44% inside the arc for his career, well below average), lacks explosiveness athletically … Not a transition player, much more likely to contribute on a slower paced team than an up tempo one … Even though he is a sound defender, he is not a lockdown type … Can struggle to contain the more explosive types of players, and isn’t a playmaking defender who comes up with a lot of steals (0.5 steals per game for his career) … Limited upside overall, will be 23 at the start of the 2018-2019 season …Will have to prove he can contribute enough points to garner any minutes at the NBA level

Overall: Hall has experience as one of the integral reasons Virginia has been one of the best teams in the country over the last 3 seasons … He’s a sharp player who will be good for the culture of an organization, with his smarts and work ethic … He improved his shot enough to warrant draft selection in the 2nd round, despite not being the most dynamic prospect out there … His average athleticism and lackluster scoring ability limit him, but he does have enough potential on defense and with his outside shooting to contribute rotational minutes for a team …
