Darko Milicic signs with the Boston Celtics

Darko Milicic signs with the Boston Celtics. Not with Real Madrid, as earlier reported. For a long time the Serb big man and the team from Spain were flirting with each other and at one point the news leaked out that a € 1.800.000 contract had been signed. In the last week however, Darko Milicic was linked to the NBA and he has now reportedly signed with the Boston Celtics. He spent the past two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves but was released in July via the amnesty clause with two seasons left on a four-year $20 million contract signed with the Wolves in the summer of 2010. The former No. 2 overall pick, selected by the Detroit Pistons ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade in the 2003 NBA draft, also played for Orlando, Memphis and New York before his Minnesota stint. In his native Serbia Darko Milicic draws a lot of media attention because national team coach Dusan Ivkovic refuses to select Milicic for his team. Nobody really knows the reason for that, but since the Serbian national team is in a crisis and in desperate need of another big man this topic has been in the local media for several weeks.

    He could make excellent career in Europe – both sportswise and moneywise.

    darko is not as bad as people make him out to be because he was drafted way too high…very underrated defender!

      As usually for other teams – nothing!!!!!

      Ivkovic didn’t want to take him because he went through different agency. 🙂
