The Detroit Pistons has reportedly traded forward Darrun Hilliard to the Houston Rockets in exchange of cash considerations, as announced today by General Manager Jeff Bower.
According to report, there is no indication of what is being sent Detroit’s way, but it is likely be a simple deal for cash considerations. Hilliard was also drafted 38th overall in 2015 and while he has moments where he looks like he’ll be a contributor in the league he has never been able to cement a spot for himself in the rotation. He averaged 3.6 points on 38.5 percent shooting in 9.9 minutes per game in two seasons with the Pistons.
Hilliard appeared in a career-high 39 games (one start) last season with averages of 3.3 points, 0.8 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 9.8 minutes. Drafted by the Pistons with the 38th overall selection in the 2015 NBA Draft, Hilliard owns career NBA averages of 3.6 points, 1.0 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 10.1 minutes in 77 games (three starts).
However, Hilliard $1.4 million salary is fully not guaranteed if he waived before July 1. The Pistons currently have 10 players under contract with cap holds on restricted free agents Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Reggie Bullock.
