    Default Solo Hill to the mad ants

    @CandaceDBuckner: #Pacers rookie Solomon Hill has been assigned to the D-League affiliate, Fort Wayne Mad Ants


    @CandaceDBuckner: Solomon Hill has been on the inactive list since F Danny Granger returned to the lineup.

    Definitely the right move, and who knows long-term how Hill turns out, but the logjam makes me wish Pacers had taken someone they had a more immediate need for (defensive/rebounding 4, or scorer off the bench a la Hardaway Jr.) just because the championship iron is SO hot this year.

    @ScottAgness: Now that Granger has played, and stayed healthy, this is the right move for Solo. It can be a big help, as it was for OJ last year.

    Good move. It obviously worked for Miles.

    OJ however...

    He'll be playing with Peyton Siva, Tony Mitchell, and good ole Ron Howard. And Chris Porter, who's apparently keepin that dream alive.

    The way Vogel described it, S. Hill had the final decision on whether or not he wanted the D-League assn. Ultimately, Hill wanted to play

    I really think to be successful in the D-league you need to be a stable person. For example, if we sent Lance to the D-league I am not sure how that would have went with him being away from his support system. Keeping him with the Pacers was probably the best move for him.

    A guy like Miles who is pretty composed and without character or personality issues has much more of an upside with regards to the D-league. I really think it just depends on the individual as to how well/poorly the D-league can help tem develop.

    Candace Buckner ‏@CandaceDBuckner 28s

    Orlando Johnson said that he and Chris Copeland plan to go see @kingxsolo tomorrow when the Mad Ants host Sioux Falls Skyforce #togetherness

    Scott Agness ‏@ScottAgness 17m

    Vogel went to Solomon when DG returned & asked if he’d be willing to play in DLeague. Hill didn’t need time to think it over. Wanted to play

    Kevin Pritchard ‏@PacersKev 1h

    Sending @kingxsolo to the @TheMadAnts is not a demotion.It's an opportunity to get better and stay sharp. He is eager to improve! #getbetter

    Great news. It worked for Miles and OJ so it definitely is the right option. I'm glad that Solo Hill wanted to go there and play as well. He will get scoring chances in the D-League and that could improve his shooting.

    Is there any way to watch D-League games when they're taking place?

    Good. We need to use the Mad Ants as much as possible. It clearly helped Plumlee and, to an extent, OJ last year.

    Yes, they stream the D-league games live on YouTube. Here's the link for tonight's Mad Ants game. The counter says it tips off in just over 14 hours.

    Thanks a lot. I also want to watch the Delaware 87ers to see how Thanasis Antetokounmpo is doing.

    they actually show the games on one of the Fort Wayne channels but not live, and in SD but stretched out it looks horrible. Glad to see this youtube link!

    I wanted Reggie Bullock. Dude is going to be a very good player for where he was drafted.

    Solo started the game with a nice pull-up jumper and an assist

    Solo with a strong dive for an and-1. He made the FT as well. He has 5 points, 2 assists and (at least) 1 rebound so far.

    Edit: Just got his 2nd rebound and turned it over attempting an outlet pass.

    I don't think that he had time to have more than one practice.

    Solo is driving aggressively. He is exhibiting the ability to take his man (DeAndre Liggins) off the dribble and go to the rim.
