Raptors Add Donta Hall Via 10-Day Contract

FEBRUARY 26: The Raptors have officially signed Hall, according to a team press release. He’ll be assigned to the G League, where the Raptors 905 have six days during his 10-day deal, tweets Blake Murphy of The Athletic.

FEBRUARY 25: Power forward/center Donta Hall, most recently with the G League Ignite, has agreed to sign a 10-day deal with the Raptors, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets.

After Hall went undrafted out of Alabama in 2019, he split limited time in his rookie NBA season with the Pistons and Nets. Across nine NBA contests, he averaged 4.3 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 0.7 BPG in 14.8 MPG.

Hall spent the majority of his rookie season with the Pistons’ G League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive. He averaged 15.4 PPG, 10.6 RPG, and 1.4 BPG in 38 games (37 starts), while shooting 66.9% from the floor.

Across nine games with the Ignite in the NBAGL’s Orlando “bubble” this season, while averaging five fewer minutes than he did with the Grand Rapids Drive, Hall posted solid tallies of 8.9 PPG (on 61.4% shooting from the floor), 9.0 RPG, and 1.8 BPG.

Hall could prove valuable to his new club as an athletic, hyper-efficient center with legitimate bulk. Toronto could theoretically use the size of the Hall to help supplement forward Chris Boucher‘s minutes at the five in speedy lineups. Hall, 23, is listed at 232 pounds to Boucher’s 200.

    Ignite’s first 10-day? After this is over, Hall could re-ignite.

    Okay frankly I’m not sure this represents the purpose of Ignite. I suppose covid makes all designs temporary anyway.

    • This represents the purpose of the G-League yes. If they didn’t let the Ignite vets sign 10 days they wouldn’t have any quality vets playing for the team

    finally they signed a legitimate big man who could be an upgrade over baynes.

    For the love of basketball will Masai get his big boy pants on this season??? Like trade for Bamba or Richaun Holmes. Dedmon & Skal Labissier are still unsigned! Have these GM’s lost their fortitude?

      Im no GM, but the fact all the other teams are passing on them could be an indication that they are not very good, all have had multiple chances.

      Massai finds the diamonds in the rough better than any other GM. Especially un drafted players

        You do realize that Holmes is on fire & is gonna be a hot commodity come the summer, right?
        Probably one of the top FA’s in the market this summer… so he seems pretty good to me, right?

        • Jaysfan1981

          If he’s not playing in the NBA, where is he on fire? If he is on a roster that team may not want to trade him seeing you say he’s on fire

          I stick to my org statement, Ujiri sees something he likes in Hall that the others aren’t exhibiting.

          I trust in Ujiri

    Donta Hall is legit. Good signing – all upside. If he doesn’t mesh for some reason, they don’t resign him. Ain’t no thang….
