The Toronto Raptors are reportedly going to sign Donta Hall, a forward for the G League Ignite, to a 10-day contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Raptors do not have a two-way spot open on their roster. Meaning, if Hall fits well with the organization, he will likely become the latest undrafted player looking to make their impact starting with the Raptors 905.

In 23 games as a member of the Ignite -- a team designed as part of a one-year development program for elite NBA prospects to play exhibition games outside of traditional scheduling -- Hall has flirted with being a consistent double-double presence. The 23-year-old has averaged 8.9 points, nine rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 23.5 minutes of action each night.

Hall, who ended his collegiate career at Alabama seventh on the school's all-time blocked shots list, was named to the All-NBA G League Second Team and All-Defensive Team in 2020.

In 2019, he attended the NBA's Summer League as a member of the Detroit Pistons' roster. He averaged six points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game and eventually signed a 10-day contract with the Pistons on Feb. 22, 2020.

The six-foot-10 forward made his NBA debut five days later, scoring four points and picking up four rebounds. Later that year, he joined the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA bubble, averaging 6.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and one block across five seeding games.
