Darko Milicic is a bust. He is not a productive player in the least bit. He will generally hurt you when he is on the floor.
Those are all obvious statements.
But here he is about to enter his 10th year in the NBA. It is a career which has made him about $50 million dollars to do virtually nothing for five different teams. And soon, he will play for a sixth.
Some team out there will pay him to play. And even if it is the league minimum, it will be $1.3 million dollars (Well, actually, because he was amnestied, he'll get paid $5.2 million this season, but one team other than the Timberwolves will willingly pay at least some portion of that).
And, believe it or not, there's more than one team willing to pay him... including the champion Miami Heat. And that would make for an interesting quirk.
Milicic was selected No. 2 in the 2003 NBA Draft, after LeBron James was taken by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Carmelo Anthony then went No. 3 to the Denver Nuggets, Chris Bosh No...

In an interview with the St. Paul Pioneer-Press, T-Wolves star Kevin Love said he was happy the team got rid of some players who were problems last season.
“If we get everybody back healthy, with Ricky back...
Kevin Love opened up about some of the locker room issues the T-Wolves experienced last season, calling it "bad blood."
Darko Milicic was waived by the Wolves using the amnesty provision.
The Clippers are not the only team pursuing free-agent center Darko Milicic.
Apparently the Miami Heat, Chicago Bulls and Brooklyn Nets all have interest too.
Milicics agent, Marc Cornstein, said Wednesday that the Clippers are a team we have spoken to.
Cornstein knows that the Clippers only have the veteran minimum of about 1.229 million to offer Milicic.
But Cornstein said...
LAS VEGAS I know I can play.I know I can play.I know I can play.Say it once, and it's a statement. Twice, it's emphasis. Three times, it's harder to believe.With as many times as Derrick Williams has said he knows he can play since last December, it's become a monotonous reassurance. The second-year Timberwolves forward believes it, but not without reminding himself...

He also writes for HowlinTwolf.com and HoopsAddict.com, and he clearly isn’t very fond of the disturbing thought that Darko Milicic might actually be on the Celtics’ radar.

Phase II of the new Big 3 era has yet to officially begin, but I’m already fascinated by potential roster moves at the end of the 2014-15 NBA season. Should the Celtics need a new big
man to replace KG, Bass and Paul Pierce, look no further than Kevin Love:
Timberwolves all-star forward Kevin Love is glad he negotiated the option to leave Minnesota as a free agent in three years...
The Denver Nuggets signed free-agent forward Anthony Randolph to a multiyear contract, the team announced Friday. Specifics of the deal were not disclosed. Randolph averaged 7.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 34 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves last season. He scored a season-high 28 points with six rebounds and five blocks on April 11 at Denver. Randolph's addition puts...
