If you were to go back to the NBA, on which conditions would it be? Darrun Hilliard: Guaranteed contract, for sure (smiles). Only. But I’m cool with CSKA right now. Q: Where did you enjoy the game more, Detroit or San Antonio? Darrun Hilliard: Oh man, that’s a good question. Detroit was nice because they drafted me, they took a chance on me and that was nice too. But San Antonio was kind of like up and down, with two-way contract and so forth. I really liked Texas, though.

For the first time in his career, Darrun Hilliard will play in the Turkish Airlines EuroLeague competition for Baskonia Vitoria Gasteiz. As Eurohoops had reported, the two sides were near a deal on Sunday night, and on Monday it has been made official that the 25-year old American guard will play for the Spanish team.
Hilliard signed a one-year deal after spending most of last season with the Austin Spurs in G-League, averaging 20 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
Hilliard has played in 91 NBA games, for two teams. The Detroit Pistons and the San Antonio Spurs. In his short career on the other side of the Atlantic, he averaged 3.2 points and 0.8 assists per game. Last year, Hilliard played in the G-League for the Austin Spurs and had an impressive outing, as he posted 20.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.8 assists per contest.
Free agent Darrun Hilliard is ready to cross the pond for Baskonia, according to Eurohoops sources from the US. The player who was part of the San Antonio Spurs last season, after a great performance with the national team of the USA in FIBA AmeriCup 2017, is currently in advanced talks with the Spanish club. A deal between them seems more than possible, according to sources.
Spurs guard Darrun Hilliard remains a restricted free agent after the Spurs opted not to rescind his one-year qualifying offer, a league source said Saturday. Friday was the deadline for NBA teams to unilaterally withdraw a qualifying offer from a restricted free agent, making him an unrestricted free agent.
Paul Garcia: Today is the last day for the Spurs to withdraw Darrun Hilliard’s qualifying offer without his permission. If it’s not withdrawn, SA will need his permission to withdraw the QO in the future. The QO right now is basically a placeholder for a two-way roster spot with the Spurs.

Ohm Youngmisuk: DeMarcus Cousins has no time for PG hate: “We gotta stop the PG slander. It just won’t be accepted around me. He’s one of the most gifted players in this league and every chance I get, I’m gonna give him his flowers.”
StatMuse: The Clippers are 17-5 since the All-Star break. 1st in win percentage 1st in offensive rating 1st in 3P% 2nd in net rating 4th in FG% 5th in defensive rating The hottest team in the NBA right now.
Ohm Youngmisuk: Paul George on DeMarcus Cousins: “We’re getting flashes of vintage Boogie… what will be most impressive about his game is that he automatically draws double teams. He’s instant offense for us, dump the ball down there for him and he’s a playmaker.”
Eric Nehm: A league source has confirmed @Jim Owczarski’s earlier reporting to The Athletic. Mamadi Diakite has grabbed the Bucks’ 15th roster spot on a multi-year deal and the Bucks signed Justin Jackson to fill his two-way spot. Their roster is full at 17 players (15 + 2 two-way deals).
Kyrie Irving capped a 32-point performance with a tough turnaround jumper, a driving layup through converging defenders and four free throws in the final minute, and the Brooklyn Nets held on for a 134-129 victory over the reeling New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. “Obviously, when Kyrie does his thing and hits tough shots like that, it truly saves us,” said Nets forward Blake Griffin, who had 16 points and eight rebounds in a reserve role. “But I thought overall we did a better job of just trying to like, do it by committee, moving off the ball and not settling.”
Williamson, who was debuting his own Jordan brand basketball shoe, scored 33 points, mostly on strong moves in the paint that produced dunks and contested layups. Brandon Ingram added 27 points for the Pelicans, who fell four games behind Golden State and San Antonio for the final play-in spot in the Western Conference with 14 games left in the regular season. “I’m not going to lie,” Williamson said. “It does get kind of annoying to sit up here every other game saying we’re right there and we’re not closing out. So, I think we’ve got to focus on some of those small things. I say it over and over, but until we do it, some of those outcomes aren’t going to change.”
Scott Kushner: Zion says the players “take the blame” on this one. Said SVG told them they were a bit lifeless at times on the bench. Says it’s “annoying” to keep revisiting explanations about how close they are.
