According to the Globe's Marc Spears, the C's have signed Darius Miles to a non-guaranteed contract. Yes, he's never played to his potential, spent the last two years with major problems and will reportedly be suspended 10-games for violating the league's drug policy but when you are the world champs, you can take a flyer on these types of guys. And he really, really wants to be here:
“I’ve watched the Boston Celtics play a lot last year and loved what I saw in their teamwork and chemistry on the court and it’s the team that I want to try to resume my career with.” Miles said in a press release. “I am excited about having an opportunity to play on a team that I feel my personality fits with and a team that can have great success on the court.”
Maybe, just maybe, he can fill the James Posey role.
If my memory serves me right, John predicted this signing earlier this summer.
