Hilliard participated in the Orlando Summer League with the Pistons. In his four NBA Summer League games, the left-handed Bethlehem native averaged 10 points and 3.25 rebounds for Detroit. Hilliard was perfect from the charity stripe in those games and shot 40% from 3-Point Range (4-10), which was 8 percentage points better than his 31.8% shooting from the field (14-44).
Additional contract details have emerged courtesy of Vincent Ellis, the Pistons' beat-writer for the Detroit Free Press, that Hilliard's first year of the contract is guaranteed with a partial guarantee in the second year. The Pistons carry the option in the third-year of the contract.
According to the most recent CBA, a rookie will have a minimum salary of $525,093 in the 2015-16 season.
