Darko Milicic somehow sticking in NBA, signs with Celtics

Chad Ford and Marc Stein of ESPN:

Free-agent center Darko Milicic has decided to stay in the NBA and continue his career with the Boston Celtics, Milicic’s agent, Marc Cornstein, confirmed to ESPN.com.

Milicic, after weighing strong interest from teams abroad trying to lure him back to Europe — such as perennial Spanish power Real Madrid — has committed to join the Celtics and is scheduled to be in Boston by week’s end to make the deal official.

Rasheed Wallace, Chris Wilcox and, now Darko – apparently, Boston is becoming home for former Pistons big men on the downside of their careers.

    When was Darko’s career ever on the upside?

    I wonder if it might actually work out for Darko to grow into a player there? They have a role for him and you know Kevin Garnett will ride his ass unless he performs. Perhaps foolishly I’m still hoping Darko turns it around.

    darko had amazing upside.  no one groomed him the way an 18 yr old needed to be groomed.  do you realize he is a mobile 7 footer that is really strong.  he has really good defense and foot work for someone as big as him.  wish he worked out but he didnt.  i thinkt he celtics will make him look better than any team as at the moment.

    I’m so happy for Darko.  He is probably one of the NBA’s greatest survivors.  no matter how many times he gets knocked down, he still manages to pull himself up.  Hoping for the best in his time as a Celtic
