Darko Milicic is reportedly giving up basketball to become a professional kickboxer.

Darko, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 draft class that featured LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade has officially called it quits on his NBA career. There's no fantasy relevance here, but we thought it was a story worth passing along. Slow news day folks.

Darko Milicic is participating in World Carp Classic 2013.

Milicic said it's a "done deal" that he won't sign with an NBA team, so why not try his hand at professional fishing? Obviously, this has no fantasy relevance, but we just had to pass it along.

Darko Milicic confirmed that he won't attempt to sign with an NBA team this summer.

"No more chances. This is a done deal," said Milicic, according to a rough translation. It's extremely unlikely that we'll see him in the NBA again.

The Celtics have officially waived Darko Milicic.

Milicic, whose mother is ill, is expected to head to Europe and this very likely could be the end of his NBA career.

Doc Rivers said that Darko Milicic's return to the Celtics is unlikely.

Milicic will likely head to Europe to be with his ill mother, and it wouldn't be surprising if this is the end of the line in the NBA for Darko.

Darko Milicic is "leaning toward" leaving the Celtics for the remainder of the season to be with his ill mother in Europe, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Darko is playing on a one-year deal for the Celtics, but has only appeared in one game for his new team.

Darko Milicic (personal) will not play against the Pistons on Sunday.

Darko hasn't played in any of Boston's last eight games. Detroit fans that sit near the road team's bench may be the only ones disappointed because they won't be able to boo one of the worst draft picks ever.

Darko Milicic (wrist) was active in the Celtics season opener, but he did not play.

Milcic's wrist is healthy enough for him to play, so we're taking him off the injury report. He's a candidate to rack up several DNP-Coach's Decision in the box score this season.

Darko Milicic continues to practice, but his right wrist is "heavily taped."

Darko said that he was 100 percent healthy, but the heavy tape could be an indication that he may not be all the way back just yet. Despite the tape, Milicic is expected to be ready for the opener.

Darko Milicic practiced on Wednesday despite a wrist injury that kept him out of another game on Sunday.

Darko's not a fantasy target right now, but he said he's "100 percent" healthy, and he could get enough run to warrant a waiver-wire pickup if he gets enough minutes in the middle for the Celtics.
Wed, Oct 24, 2012 02:10:00 PM

Darko Milicic (wrist) sat out another game on Sunday, but Doc Rivers said he isn't concerned about the injury.

Darko's absence is precautionary, and we expect him to have a sizeable spot in the rotation on opening night. He will likely even start a few games at center this season, depending upon matchups, so keep an eye on him in deep leagues.
Sun, Oct 21, 2012 07:36:00 PM

Darko Milicic is expected to sit out Boston's games on Tuesday and Thursday with a "mild right wrist injury."

Doc Rivers is hopeful that Darko will return to action vs. the Knicks on Saturday. The underachieving veteran has actually been playing well for the Celtics this preseason, and could even start at center on occasion, when Boston wants to play a big lineup with Kevin Garnett at PF.

Darko Milicic had six points, three rebounds and a block before leaving Monday's game with a right wrist injury.

He has strained ligaments and might need an injection for the pain, leaving him iffy for Tuesday's preseason game. Believe it or not, Darko is working nicely into Boston's plans, but it would still be a shock to see him worth drafting in fantasy leagues. He is day-to-day for now.
Mon, Oct 15, 2012 10:03:00 PM

Darko Milicic played well in his preseason opener for the Celtics, racking up six rebounds and two blocks in 16 minutes.

The Celtics have a huge hole at center, with Kevin Garnett playing out of position as the starter, so an effective Milicic would be big for Boston. We doubt he'll be worth owning in fantasy, but Darko is worth keeping an eye on.
