About the Blog
Steve Weinman launched D-League Digest on November 27, 2009 as part of the ESPN TrueHoop Network. D-League Digest focuses primarily on coverage of the NBA Development League, although it branches out occasionally to touch on related issues in the NBA, including the NBA Draft and Summer League, NCAA, and basketball in general. After more than seven months as the lead writer, Weinman stepped down from his position at D-League Digest on July 2, 2010, to take a job with the NBA. Before departing, Weinman named Matt Hubert, who began contributing to D-League Digest in February of 2010, as his successor as lead writer and maintainer of the site.

In 2013, Hubert named Gino Pilato to take over as the site’s editor after a stint at SB Nation’s RidiculousUpside.com. Pilato helped expand the role of D-League Digest during the 2014-15 season with his own personalized scouting rerports.

Pilato stepped down from his position after accepting a job with Scorers 1st Sportmanagement as a Recruiting Coordinator.

Pilato tapped Adam Johnson, editor of Santa Cruz Warriors site Sea Dubs Central, to take over as lead writer at D-League Digest. Johnson looks to maintain and continue to lead D-League Digest as the premier destination for anything and everything D-League.
