Without disrespect I insist that you are wrong about that. The spin degree of freedom is "internal", unrelated to the position of the particle. The pilot wave does not influence that spin, and if you have a big ball on top of a wave, that wave does not care about the angular momentum of the ball. The ball is big and classical, hence its angular momentum is (practically) not quantized.

The thread got a bit long, but if you are really interested in learning about this I would be happy to continue the discussion through email (stefan.krastanov@yale.edu). You probably also need proof of some kind of qualification on my part - my online profile does prove that I work at a respected institute doing research on that topic.
