Former Villanova guard Darrun Hilliard traded from Detroit to Houston, who flip him to the LA Clippers

A former Villanova Wildcats star is on the move.

Darrun Hilliard, who has spent three seasons with the Detroit Pistons, was acquired by the Houston Rockets in a trade on Wednesday afternoon, and will likely be sent to the LA Clippers. The acquisition was part of the blockbuster Chris Paul trade that went down early Wednesday.

The former ‘Nova star averaged 3.6 points and 1.0 rebound per game in two years at the NBA level with the Pistons. He had also spent time in their D-League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive.

As you can see, Hilliard wasn’t the only former Big East star in the deal. Montrezl Harrell, who was a freshman on the Louisville 2012-13 National Championship squad, will also be heading to LA.

Best of luck to Hilliard out in SoCal! Perhaps we’ll get to see him tangle with his former teammate Josh Hart, who’s on the Lakers, at some point in the near future.
