Found October 04, 2013 on Fox Sports:
Darko Milicic's roller coaster 10-year NBA career came to a close last November when he was released by the Celtics after playing in just one preseason game. Milicic had requested a release to return to Europe to be with his ailing mother, and the man who was drafted No. 2 behind LeBron James hasn't seen the spotlight since his departure from the C's.

Milicic discussed his love of Carp fishing during his NBA career, so perhaps the 28-year-old has found his true calling after more than a decade of trying the basketball thing.
