Vernon Macklin likely to spend five games in D-League

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Vernon Macklin probably will play 5 games in Fort Wayne – 1 Thursday, 4 next week – and then rejoin #Pistons from D-League.

I hope the implication is that if Vernon Macklin plays well, his path into the rotation will open.

    Sending Macklin, to the D-League, might not have been a bad move for him. Giving him time to work on his low post game, and to gain some experience would be good. He needs time to play, and gain confidence in his game. Mental reps are fine, but, nothing takes the place of good ole floor time. He will return better, and break into the rotation this year. And, make a big push for more playing time, if not, a starting position, with a good off season next year.

    Why have the Pistons been so reluctant to send guys to the D-League for “seasoning” or to look to the D-League when in need of help?
