Tyler Hall was the fourth overall pick Saturday in the NBA G League draft.

NEW YORK — Former Montana State basketball standout Tyler Hall was the fourth overall pick in the NBA G League draft on Saturday.

Hall, a 6-foot-5 guard who is MSU's career 3-point leader, was taken by the Westchester Knicks. He was one of 11 first-round picks invited to the G League Player Invitational in August in Chicago and was on the Chicago Bulls' Summer League roster.

Hall, a native of Rock Island, Illinois, finished his career with 2,518 points, good for 62nd all-time in NCAA Division I history. He broke the Big Sky Conference record of 2,169 points held by Eastern Washington's Bogdan Bliznyuk.

Also taken in the opening round was former Bobcat Keljin Blevins, a 6-6 forward taken 15th by Northern Arizona. Blevins, a cousin of Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard, averaged 11.8 points and 5.9 rebounds a game in his final season at MSU; the Blazers signed him to a preseason contract in September.

Zack Rollins, a 6-6 guard/forward who was Montana State Billings' leading scorer the past two seasons, was taken in the third round by Agua Caliente.

Sacramento State's Marcus Graves was selected 17th by Stockton.
