Is Darko finally free?


In potentially “hot off the press” Celtics news, Danny and co. are apparently bringing in Darko Milicic, the journeyman Serbian center and hair icon, for a one year contract at the veteran minimum.

As a short-term, inexpensive flyer, the Celtics have nothing to lose by adding a 27-year-old 7’0” with some serviceable big man skills. ¬†Always burdened with his draft selection misstep between LeBron and Melo in the 2003 NBA draft (and before DWade and Chris Bosh), Darko never lived up to his Joe Dumars/Chad Ford pushed potential, but after years on the bench of successful teams and on the floor of unsuccessful teams, a Celtics renaissance behind master big mentor KG may be a potentiality.
