The Boston Celtics have agreed to sign free-agent center Darko Milicic to a one-year contract for the veteran's minimum, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. Sportando.net first reported the agreement.
In Boston, Milicic will mostly be a foul-giver and a depth-provider. He joins a frontcourt that includes All-Star Kevin Garnett, Brandon Bass, Jeff Green and rookies Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo. The Celtics also signed veteran center Jason Collins back in July.
Milicic has been a punchline for seemingly his entire NBA career, as he was drafted second in 2003 ahead of the likes of Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. He was, however, a favorite of Timberwolves president David Kahn, who memorably said in a 2010 television interview that Milicic was like "manna from heaven."
Milicic, 27, averaged 4.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game for the Timberwolves last season.
