Deron Washington

Virginia Tech head coach Seth Greenberg posted on his Twitter account that former Hokie standout Deron Washington has signed a guaranteed contract with the Detroit Pistons, who selected him 59th overall (second round) of the 2008 NBA Draft. Washington played in Israel last season.

Greenberg, @HeadHokie on Twitter, posted 6:41 p.m. (eastern):

“congrats to Deron Washington for signing a guaranteed contract with the Pistons Great to have a Hokie in the league!”

I have yet to see this confirmed in any news reports, but I’ll take Greenberg’s word for it. Way to go, Deron!
