The Mad Ants are losing their star point guard as Walker Russell has been called up to the Detroit Pistons.

Walker, who was in training camp with the Pistons earlier this season, leads the D-League in assists this season at 9.9 per game to go with 16 points.

It will be the 29-year old Russell’s first stint with an NBA team during the regular season. Via

Hat tip to @WTFDetroit_com who let me know.  Walker is also on Twitter @WalkRussell if you want to follow the new Piston.
