Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
Darko Milicic is flying to the States and he will likely sign his new contract in the NBA in the coming days.
The Boston Celtics are the favorite to sign the Serbian play who turned down a three-year, $6M offer from Real Madrid in the summer because he wants to play in the NBA.
Sorry to piss all over your cornflakes this morning, but it’s our obligation to report Celtics news.
It appears that Darko Milicic is going to sign with the Celtics on a veteran minimum deal. Yup. Darko. Milicic.
Reports of the Celtics interest in Darko first surfaced in July, but the lack of any substantial follow-ups had me thinking we were in the clear.
If you want a refresher course on Darko, check out this scouting report. It’s loaded with the following words and phrases; not good, bad, adequate, poor, easy to beat.
On the bright side, this is a veteran minimum deal. There’s no risk. If Darko sucks beyond his normal suckage level, then he’s gone by the end of training camp.
