Brooklyn Nets Sign Donta Hall as a Substitute Player


The Brooklyn Nets announced Thursday morning that they have signed forward/center Donta Hall as a Substitute Player for the remainder of the 2019-20 NBA season.

Hall is the third player the Nets signed within a 24-hour period, following the additions of Jamal Crawford and Michael Beasley on Wednesday.

From the Nets’ release on Hall:

Hall (6’9”, 229) signed two consecutive 10-day contracts as a rookie with the Detroit Pistons this season, appearing in four games and averaging 1.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12.0 minutes per contest. Suiting up in 38 games (37 starts) for the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA G League in 2019-20, the Alabama native recorded averages of 15.4 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.3 blocks in 28.6 minutes per game, earning him All-NBA G League Second Team and All-Rookie Team honors.
The 22-year-old went undrafted in 2019 after a four-year (2015-19) collegiate career at the University of Alabama, appearing in 135 career games (85 starts) and averaging 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 20.8 minutes per contest. He was a two-time SEC All-Defensive Team honoree (2018, 2019) and became just the fifth player in Crimson Tide history to record more than 1,000 points (1,014), 800 rebounds (850) and 200 blocks (228) in a career. 

The team is without seven players – including Kevin Durant, who has missed the entire season – as they prepare for the NBA’s resumption in Orlando, and still have at least one open roster spot for substitutes.
