Pistons Assign Stanley Johnson to D-League Affiliate

The Detroit Pistons have assigned Stanley Johnson to the NBA D-League today. Johnson will play with Detroit’s D-League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive tonight. The Drive play the Delaware 87ers tonight at 7pm EST.

The Drive have a talented team, although they hold a just a 4-6 record. The Drive’s struggles are due to not having Nikola Jovanovic since November 23rd and with Jordan Crawford dealing with injuries. Ray McCallum who was waived by the Pistons right before the season began is also with the Drive.

Stanley Johnson has had his fair share of struggles this season. He is only averaging 3.3 points per game this year and has lost the backup wing spot to Darrun Hilliard. Johnson previously lost the spot to Reggie Bullock, but Bullock went down with a meniscus injury a few weeks ago.

Rookies Henry Ellenson and Michael Gbinije will join Johnson with the Drive.

You can watch the game tonight on the NBA D-League’s Facebook page.
