Mike Hall "Without the Oates"

Oh-Oh here he comes...Watch out boy he'll chew you up...Oh-Oh here he comes...He's a maneater.

Mike Hall recently was given a non-guaranteed contract by the Washington Wizards. (Late, but I don't care)

I had no idea what exactly this type of contract even meant. So correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that it works like this:

(A non-guaranteed contract means that Hall/Taylor will either make the team after training camp, or be completely cut. If they make the team, they get paid. If they don't make the team, they will not get paid unless another team or league decides to pick them up. If (when) Hall gets waived and goes to D-League, he will be able to sign with any NBA team, and will receive D-League pay as opposed to NBA pay. Also It effects the Wizards salary cap in a way that is not important to this discussion.)

What happened, I blacked out. Oh Right, Mike Hall. Hall averaged 15.6 ppg, 8.5 boards, and 2 assists (and like 13 dimes...i'll never stop this joke) last year for the D-League Tulsa 66'ers (named after the non Virginia highway 66).

While on the Wizards he made it into 2 games and played for 13 total minutes.

This summer he played pretty well in the Summer League (wow what a great analysis) so the Wizards are gonna give him a good chance to make the team this year.

I think this post about Mike Hall is not even worth a 10-Day contract...I'm going straight to the Bloggers D-League...

(Note: I forgot to mention that Ronell Taylor made the D-League All Star Game last year)
