Darko Milicic is leaning toward leaving the Boston Celtics for season and returning to Europe to be with ill mother, league sources tell Y! — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) November 19, 2012 Milicic was signed by the Celtics on September 20th for a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum. The 27-year-old had an impressive showing in the 2012-13 preseason, but now he can’t buy time for Doc Rivers’ team. Celtics thin at the power forward and center position might have to take a look at some options if the nine-year pro decides to leave for home. One of those options could Kenyon Martin. As CelticsTown.com has reported Boston veterans are pressing the front office to sign the 34-year-old veteran if Milicic walks. Martin would be a strong fit for this lesser-deep Celtics post depth. His attitude is similar to Kevin Garnett’s (competitiveness). If I am the Celtics, evaluating Collins to Martin will rise to topic. In my mind, Martin would be an ideal fit for this Boston Celtics team. Not only can he score, but he can block shots as well. Most recently, the 12-year power forward recorded 5.2 points and 4.3 rebounds  per game with the Los Angeles Clippers.
