A mounted basketball hoop can be hung from the garage, roof, or side of a house. This is a great option for people who don't have enough space or prefer a temporary solution. All Wall-mount basketball hoops are smaller than portable and in-ground hoops.

There are two choices for consumers: a combination of a backboard/rim and a system. The combo includes the backboard and the rim. The bracket will be used to hang the hoop. If you choose to buy the bracket separately, make sure it is made by the same manufacturer to ensure that it works properly.
The price range for mounted basketball hoops is wide. Side-mounted hoops are expensive and can be found in gymnasiums. For residential use, expect to spend more than $1000.
The most expensive hoop will usually include a tempered glass backboard and a heavy-duty breakaway edge. Glass backboards are the most durable and expensive. You can adjust the height of the hoop using the bracket. It typically has a range from 6-10ft. The overhang of the basket is typically 3 feet. This allows you to play underneath it.
The adjustable bracket is required if you want your backboard to extend beyond the wall. This is what serious players need. A stationary bracket is sufficient for recreational play.
You can choose the bracket if you buy the combo. You can only buy the system and then take any bracket that comes with it. Most brackets are simple and inexpensive. They don't have any adjustment or overhang. The bottom line is that the higher the price, the better the performance.
