Pinar Karsiyaka, which plays in the Basketball Champions League (BCL), has officially announced that the 30-year-old guard is joining the organization on a one-year deal.

After being a featured player on the FC Bayern Munich's roster during the 2021-22 season, Hilliard didn't find his sweet spot in the Maccabi Playtika Tel Aviv rotation last year.

Even though he got injured early in the season, the veteran player managed to play in 30 EuroLeague games and averaged 5.6 points (32.6% 2PT, 44.7% 3PT, 96.2% FT), 1.4 rebounds, and 1.1 assists for 4.1 PIR.

Hilliard was temporarily suspended by the club in the middle of the season but quickly returned to the roster.
