Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! It looks like our favorite son Darrun Hilliard may be heading out of Detroit, at least temporarily. Hiliard has yet to play for the Pistons and with the team performing well he probably won't be getting run anytime soon unless there are some injuries.
Heading to the D-League doesn't sound fun, but it's better to have him actually playing in games and honing his skills. Hilliard's been through the doubters before so I'm not worried about this setback for him.
And now, the "news."
