I don't know anything about him but that highlight clip is sick! This is exactly the kind of player I wanted us to pick up, a unknown g league player getting a shot.

I propose the nickname "Jambox".....

Funny that our team is even smaller now. JA needs to be ready for heavy minutes cause there's no backup to handle stronger centers. Like the move though. Young guy we can possibly get cheap next year.

7'2 wingspan, and you can expect the rebounding numbers to carry over (averaged 10.5 per game in the G league, excellent offensive rebounding numbers). Him being 6'9 could be problematic defensively but lets give him a shot. He definitely has some burst around the rim.

He fits the Montrezl Harrell mold of modern, undersized, high-energy bench centers. I'm glad we're filling out the team, he may have real keeper value.

I read that Hall actually has a 7'5 wingspan, which is extraordinary for a 6'9/6'10 dude. Sometimes, I think that that makes for the most versatile defenders, since they are small enough to switch onto guards, but long enough to defend their position. I guess we'll see, he's gonna get some PT.

I'm happy we are taking a shot at a young player from the g-league.

As of now he's the only back center so he'll definatelly see some good minutes. Could be a good opportunity for him.

Looks like a shorter meaner Fro from the highlights.
