    I think he is athletic and long-armed enough to make a roster with his defensive ability and presence in the paint. He can run the court just fine; would like to see him develop some more offensive skills.
    Not to be argumentative but every legit NBA big man who ever went head to head with Hall while he was at bama owned that dude offensively.

    Are you referencing the joke about Donta being 1-1 from behind the arc?

    I did say that Hall would at the least get a look from an NBA team. I hope he makes it.

    I could see Detroit signing him and then putting him in the G League. His defensive chops have been pretty good so far. He is limited offensively, so they would love to see him develop that part of his game. That said, if he becomes a true NBA quality defensive player, he could earn his way onto a roster as a roleplaying, defensive specialist.

    True ... he has to has to carve out a role as a specialist. The good thing is the game still utilizes roleplayers like that.

    Re: Donta Hall joins Detroit Pistons for NBA Summer League

    He improved his free throw shooting last which is about all of his offensive game other than the occasional dunk. He needs to be a garbage guy. If he can rebound well, he can get enough dunks and free throws to carve out a niche. I don't see a NBA team using a spot on a guy who will frankly isn't quite quick enough to cover outside the arc and not really big enough to pound down low. I can't really see him making an NBA roster with significant improvement in his shooting ability from further than 2 feet. If you look at his senior year, he was very up and down. Hope he took some foreign language classes.

    Not to the degree this guy did it but I can see Donta possible having a niche like Dennis Rodman had. He can run like him and if he bust his butt in the weight room and has the heart he may can rebound similar.

    The Pistons signed Donta to a summer contract.

    Best case for him to Play in G league, show improvement... play 45 days with Pistons... have better chance of making a roster somewhere next year. He will be fine. If he decide to play oversea this fall, then that's not a bad move either. Either way, I expect him to land on someone roster in the near future.
