Sportando is reporting that Darko Milicic is heading back to the US with rumors that he will sign with the Celtics. There have also been rumors that the Celtics have been in the mix for Kenyon Martin's services but KMart is looking for more than the vet minimum and the Celtics weren't offering more. The Sportando rumor and the above tweet all stem from a report on this Croatian site.
Darko already turned down a 3 year six million dollar offer from Real Madrid because he wants to play in the NBA. I imagine that he will sign for the vet minimum. His upside is that he is 27 years old and 7 feet tall. His downside is that he has been pretty bad as a player so far averaging 6.0 points and 4.2 rebounds over his 9 year career. He averaged just 4.6 points and 3.3 rebounds last season for the Timberwolves.
Of course, this may just be a rumor, but it's one that has surfaced several times this off-season already. The Celtics need another big man at a bargain price. Darko is a big man who could come cheap. Seems logical to me. He's been a big disappointment in his career so far, but there is that KG factor with the Celtics.
