Former Alabama Basketball Player Donta Hall Signs with Magic
The Orlando Magic have signed former Alabama basketball player Donta Hall to a 10-day contract, the team announced on Twitter this morning. The deal will earn him $110,998.
This is the second 10-day contract that Hall has received this season after signing with the Toronto Raptors in February. However, Hall did not appear in a game for the Raptors.
Hall has been playing most of this season for the Ignite of the NBA's G-League. He had been having a solid season in the G-League, averaging 10.2 PPG, 8.3 RPG, and over two blocks per game.
Hall was selected to the NBA G-League's all-rookie team in the 2019-20 season after averaging 15.4 points and 10.5 rebounds per game while playing with the Grand Rapids Drive, the G-League affiliate of the Detroit Pistons.
Hall's fantastic play with the Drive earned him two different ten-day contracts with the Pistons, during which he played just 48 total minutes across four appearances in games. He scored just six points in total but was able to pull down 15 rebounds as well.
While at Alabama, Hall was a star on the defensive end, making the SEC-all-defensive team in two separate seasons.
At just 23 years old still, Hall is working hard to keep his NBA dream alive and now may have a good chance to get some decent minutes on a struggling Orlando Magic team that sits at 17-37 and over ten games out of the playoffs.
If there was ever a time for Hall to take advantage of his limited NBA opportunity, it would be now.
