According to Brad Turner of the LA Times, the Clippers have waived guard Darrun Hilliard, who they acquired yesterday as part of a 7-player package for Chris Paul:

Hilliard had two lackluster years in Detroit, and was only included in the Chris Paul deal due to his non-guaranteed contract. It was a foregone conclusion that the Clippers would release him before his $1,471,382 salary for next season became guaranteed on July 1st. The Clippers are also likely to release Kyle Wiltjer in the coming weeks—a second-year player whose salary becomes guaranteed on August 1st.

The final throw-in from the Chris Paul trade, DeAndre Liggins, has no guarantee date. The Clippers could potentially keep him through training camp without any financial obligation.
