We told you yesterday that this might be coming, and today, the team made it official.

The Boston Celtics have waived Darko Milicic, according to a team release.

“Darko has asked us to release him so he could deal with a personal matter,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “The whole Celtics family wishes Darko and his family well.”

As we pointed out, family matter aside, the Darko experiment in Boston simply wasn’t working out. The team had been unable to find minutes for him in the rotation, and Milicic hadn’t played since opening night.

Milicic averaged 2.6 points and 4.2 rebounds per game while with the Celtics, in five total games which include the preseason.

If he does have something left to contribute, once he takes care of business at home, it’s likely that some team will give him another shot.

    Boston should look to sign Kenyon Martin. He brings defense, rebounding, and toughness inside – 3 things lacking for Boston right now. Any perceived attitude problems wouldn’t be tolerated with the veterans on the Celtics.

    Take care of your family Darko. At the end of the day, that’s the only thing that matters. God bless.
