Moravian Prep’s Josh Hall rises to the basket as North Rowan’s Quashawn Carpenter defends.

 

From staff reports

Josh Hall didn’t hear his name called in the NBA draft, but he signed with the Oklahoma City Thunder not long after the two-round affair concluded late Wednesday night.

Hall has local ties. His father, Quincy Hall, and grandfather, Clint Hall, starred for West Rowan High.

The Thunder signed Hall, who played a postgraduate high school season at Moravian Prep, to a two-way contract.

Hall, who turned 20 in October, had been committed to North Carolina State but withdrew to enter the draft. The 6-foot-9 wing led Moravian Prep to a 34-3 record in 2019-20.

Hall was signed to a two-way contract, meaning his salary will  be dependent  on whether he’s playing for the Thunder or for the  Oklahoma City Blue, the Thunder’s NBA G League affiliate.

College golf

On the last swing of Catawba’s fall season, Tanner Bibey made a hole-in-one on the 215-yard No. 9 hole at the Country Club of Salisbury.
