Reporter Will Guillory of The Times-Picayune believes that Darius Miller may start at small forward for the Pelicans this season.

With Solomon Hill sidelined indefinitely due to a torn hamstring, and Dante Cunningham still unsigned, the Pelicans have a gaping hole at the small forward spot. The Pels recently added Tony Allen, but Guillory argues that Miller is the most likely candidate to win the starting nod because Miller has shown "improved confidence shooting from the perimeter during his past two seasons in Germany and the team believes he's better prepared for his second stint in the NBA." Miller may be worth a flier in the final round of deep leagues.

Darius Miller has signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans.

The second year is a team option. Miller has been out of the league for a couple years, but the 27-year-old wing has had a lot of success overseas. He's a longshot to crack the rotation and can be ignored by fantasy owners for now.
Jul 24 - 1:57 PM

The Pelicans agreed to a deal with Darius Miller.

The Euroleague star is going to try to make an NBA comeback. He could still head back overseas and was close to signing with Barcelona last month. Miller is unlikely to be on an NBA roster on opening night.
Jul 5 - 6:27 PM

The Magic plan to work out FA forward Darius Miller, but he's reportedly "poised" to sign with Barcelona.

Miller signed with a German team in 2015 and it sounds like he's happy playing in Europe. Even if he does unexpectedly vie for a spot on an NBA roster, he's nowhere near having fantasy relevance.
Jun 25 - 9:24 PM

Former NBA swingman Darius Miller has agreed to a three-year deal with the German team Brose Baskets.

He played with the same team during the 2015 season and obviously fared well for the Bamberg-based club, leading to a deal that will keep him overseas until he's at least 27 years old.

Darius Miller has signed with Brose Baskets Bamberg of the German league.

Miller had previously worked out with the Los Angeles Clippers, but the Clippers decided to pass on the swingman. The 24-year-old shouldn't be owned in any fantasy leagues, but he can now be cut if any owners in deep leagues were holding on.

The Clippers decided not to sign Darius Miller, but head coach and president of basketball operations Doc Rivers said the team may decide to sign him at a later date.

"If he had come in great [shape], we probably still would have waited just to try to get him in basketball shape," Rivers said. "I'm sure that's what he's going to do." Doc said the Clippers would consider signing Miller to a 10-day contract later this season, but he won't have any fantasy value even if that happens.

Darius Miller is not expected to sign with the Clippers as they have decided to pursue Dahntay Jones instead.

This move from the Clippers has almost zero fantasy implications, as neither player would have been in the rotation anyways. We will let you know when the deal is official, but feel free to leave them both on the waiver wire.

The Clippers have reportedly signed Darius Miller to a 10-day deal.

Miller doesn't offer much upside, and he'll be entering a crowded rotation in Los Angeles. He can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.

The Pelicans have waived Darius Miller and Patric Young.

Miller was a surprise start on Tuesday, and was waived on Sunday. He may be able to sign on with another team, but unless that team is the 76ers, his fantasy value will be negligible. Young hadn't even got off the bench this season, and he'll likely head to the D-League.

Darius Miller was a DNP-CD on Friday.

He started on Tuesday and is shooting 14.3 percent from the field this season. Miller has no fantasy value.

Darius Miller will head to the bench on Friday, with Austin Rivers drawing the start at SG, and Tyreke Evans sliding over to SF.

Miller was a surprise start on Tuesday, but finished that game scoreless while adding doughnuts to each statistical category over 14 minutes of action. The start was surprising because he had no business being in a starting lineup, and he probably won't run with the starting unit again this season unless some serious injuries force coach Monty Williams’ hand. Miller can be cut in nearly all leagues.

Darius Miller made his first start of the season at SF on Tuesday, but he finished scoreless with zero stats to his credit in 14 minutes of action.

Tyreke Evans slid over to SG with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out indefinitely, and the early results with Miller at SF speak for themselves. Head coach Monty Williams will likely toy around with his lineups in the coming games, and Miller's fantasy offerings are too limited to reach for him outside of deeper leagues.

The Pelicans are expected to start Darius Miller in place of Eric Gordon (shoulder) on Tuesday against the Kings.

Tyreke Evans will move over to shooting guard, which is a position he thrived in last season. Obviously, Miller is not going to be the main answer here with several DNP-CDs, only 7.3 minutes per game, and 25.0 percent shooting this season. In fact, his big outlier was a 17-minute outing during the Pelicans beatdown of the Wolves 139-91 back on Nov. 14. He's only worth a look in an extremely deep league.
