Darko Milicic

  1. Celtics make it official, waive Darko Milicic

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:23 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    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…

  2. Doc Rivers says Darko “most likely” gone from Celtics

    Nov 20, 2012, 4:37 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    With a sick mother back home and no playing time in Boston, reports surfaced on Monday that Darko Milicic had returned home to be close to his family and was considering staying there and not coming back. Doc Rivers basically confirmed that on Tuesday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “Most likely, yes,” was C’s…

  3. Report: Darko Milicic may leave Celtics to return to Europe, sick mother

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:48 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    After a preseason when Celtics fans were high on him (this is why we say don’t read much into those games), Darko Milicic has been a non-factor for the Celtics. He played five minutes in the season opener and hasn’t sniffed the court since. Part of it is his mind is elsewhere — with his…

  4. New Celtics learn the hard way: Driving in Boston sucks

    Nov 9, 2012, 9:04 AM EDT

    boston gridlock

    If you’re not from Boston and you visit there (and you should), I have two words for you: Mass Transit. Take the T. Walk, Boston is a very walkable city. Take cabs. Take the dang Duckboat. But think twice about driving. I’m from Los Angeles and I don’t like driving in Boston. There are a…

  5. GM Survey: Where Darko Milicic is underrated and Carmelo Anthony is MVP

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone has that buddy that acts perfectly logical and sane, but forces you to reevaluate your friendship after he blurts out something like, “Carlos Boozer is going to win MVP this year!” Well, good news everyone: NBA General Managers are just like you, me, and your friend you can no longer take seriously. Let’s take…

  6. Darko to get cortisone shot in wrist, miss couple games

    Oct 16, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    Better to get this done now than during the regular season. In the Celtics loss to Philadelphia Monday night, Darko Milicic aggravated a wrist injury. Tuesday he is getting a cortisone shot in right wrist and will miss a couple of Celtics preseason games, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said…

  7. Even in preseason, risks of small ball begin to show

    Oct 15, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes, Ray Allen

    In Shanghai we saw it — Chris Bosh and the assortment of other Heat centers could do little to slow the bigger, stronger DeAndre Jordan short of fouling him. With Chris Paul feeding him the rock, Jordan shot 8-for-8 in a Clippers win. In Hartford we saw it — the Knicks went to the Raymond…

  8. The Celtics may bench Brandon Bass for Jared Sullinger. Quick question: Why?

    Oct 13, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Bass

    From the Boston Herald: “I have no comment on that question. No comment,” Bass responded when asked if he cared whether he started. “We have to keep getting better as a team. I think (coach Doc Rivers) will make the best decision for the team.” Rivers raised eyebrows earlier in the week when he speculated…

  9. NBA season preview: Minnesota Timberwovles

    Oct 12, 2012, 3:54 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Last season: What could have been. This was a team playoff bound (or at least in the mix for it) until injuries wiped out those hopes. First was the biggie, Ricky Rubio’s ACL, but then both Kevin Love and Nikola Pekovic went down and the whole thing fell apart. The Timberwolves finished 26-40 and back…

  10. Doc Rivers is pretty much treating Darko like Robin Williams treated Matt Damon in “Good Will Hunting”

    Oct 7, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    I think one of the worst things that can happen to a writer is when his references become outdated. So naturally I elected to go with the “Good Will Hunting” reference, here. Anyway, Doc Rivers was talking about Darko Milicic, and the conversation comes across like a horse whisperer or some sort of counselor. He’s…

  11. Darko Milicic, professional carp fisherman. Not making that up.

    Oct 3, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Darko Milicic

    You think you know Darko Milicic. You don’t know Darko Milicic. He is more than a Celtics backup center, a draft bust at No. 2 but a guy who carved out a nine-year NBA career as a decent backup big. He’s not just another faceless Euro in the NBA. He’s a professional carp fisher. I…

  12. Quote of the Day: Darko will “kill someone on the court” if he has to. Yikes.

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic has formualated, either on his own or with his agent, the line to use when talking about his disappointment as a former No.2 pick. He talks about how he’s not going to get dragged into discussions about not living up to expectations. He just wants to help his team, be a part of…

  13. Doc Rivers doesn’t know what to expect from Darko, either

    Sep 26, 2012, 11:42 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    If Darko Milicic were taken, say, 25th in the 2003 NBA Draft, you would think the Celtics made a good signing bringing him in this summer — a serviceable big man to bring in off the bench, a guy who for 12 minutes a night will not suck and give guys like Kevin Garnett some…

  14. In news to nobody, Adelman wanted Darko off the Wolves

    Sep 24, 2012, 8:24 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Twin City Business Magazine is a fine publication, I have no doubt. (I’m admittedly not a regular reader, but as a California-based basketball writer I’m not exactly the target audience.) Twin City Business Magazine is usually not the first place you go looking for NBA news. But they had some today, part of a long…

  15. Report: Celtics will sign Darko Milicic next week. Seriously.

    Sep 20, 2012, 12:14 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    When the report first came out of Boston looking at Darko we took it with a grain of salt… oh, who are we kidding, it was like a 5 lb. bag of salt. But apparently it’s true — the Boston Celtics are going to sign Darko Milicic, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. A league…

  16. Report from Europe says Darko Milicic may sign with Boston

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:36 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic a Celtic? Stranger things have happened. Not many, but the fact you know who Snooki is proves anything is possible. We know that Milicic has been looking for an NBA job since being amnestied by the Timberwolves this summer, but is one of the veterans finding the market tight. He had returned to…

  17. Heat sign former Knick Harrellson to non-guaranteed deal

    Sep 17, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Josh Harrellson tweeted a few weeks back that he was headed to Miami, hopefully for the entire season. What the former Knick big man was heading to in reality was a one-week tryout with the team. That tryout went well enough for him to get another one — this time at training camp. The Knicks…

  18. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  19. Update: Harrellson to workout with Heat in hopes of contract

    Sep 3, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    UPDATE 2:16 pm: I thought Josh Harrellson might be going to Miami on an invited workout… but no, he’s going there to workout of his own volition in hopes that a contract is to come. Ira Winderman of the Sun-Sentinel explains:   Heat apparently holding a “pre-camp” next two weeks for players to earn invites to…

  20. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  21. Heat have a few options to round out roster with big man

    Aug 24, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Miami has 13 guys under guaranteed contract for next season and likely will add one more big to the roster before the season starts, giving them a little depth at center. Now, this guy will not play a lot — Miami is going to go small with Chris Bosh at the five for this season…

  22. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

    Aug 20, 2012, 6:29 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • With all the hits Dwight Howard took on the public relations side lately,…

  24. Who is left in free agency? Here’s a list of the key names.

    Aug 3, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We have made it through the bulk of free agency. Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few…

  25. Greg Stiemsma formally signs deal with Timberwolves

    Aug 2, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Greg Stiemsma, Rajon Rondo

    Minnesota essentially swapped out Darko Milicic for Greg Stiemsma. That sounds like an upgrade to me. We’ve known about Stiemsma coming to Minnesota for a while, but he officially put pen to paper on Thursday and was introduced to the Minnesota media. This is a two-year deal although there is a team option for the…
