Vernon Macklin had quite the D-League debut

As you (should) know, Vernon Macklin was sent to the D-League at the beginning of the week to get some burn with the also very bad Fort Wayne Mad Ants. He made his debut on Thursday and I'd say he did okay:

It would've been nice to see him get some meaningful minutes with the Pistons, because he was always strong in the little junk time he received, which I guess you might be able to argue equates with time in the D-League. But to reiterate what Matt said, it's just good to see him getting extended play. Hopefully, he'll keep tearing it up with the Mad Ants and it'll force the Pistons' hand. Box score of his first game can be found here (H/T Sozz).
