Peyton Siva, Tony Mitchell headed back to Fort Wayne Mad Ants

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The rookies are expected to begin playing with the Mad Ants on Saturday and stick with the Developmental League team for at least two weeks.

The Detroit Pistons announced on Friday afternoon that they have reassigned their seldom-used rookies, guard Peyton Siva and forward Tony Mitchell, to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, the team's NBA Developmental League affiliate.

Ideally, the two would see some minutes with the Pistons, but that simply has not been the case and nothing suggested that was going to change in the near future. The Mad Ants have a home game on Saturday and play four of their next six games over the next two weeks at home. After that stretch with the Mad Ants, the 2013 second-round picks will likely return to the Pistons during the All-Star break. The Pistons then play four of their first five games at home.

During their previous stint with the Mad Ants, Siva and Mitchell played over 22 minutes per game. Mitchell played in six games, starting five, and averaged 6.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game. Siva started four games and played in another, averaging 12.4 points and 5.8 assists (2.6 turnovers) per. Siva shot 53 percent from three (8 for 15), but dealt with a wrist injury.
