Default Darius Miles

Whats the deal with this guy? Is he going to be traded?

The Spurs should pick him up.

One of my favorite players ever. Very raw talent and utilized his athleticism all the time. Several knee injuries later and he can't adapt to the NBA because all he did his whole life was drive in spin and flip the ball up or dunk. His knee is never going to be the same and he can't adjust to playing without his athleticism and leaping ability that he came into the league with. Sad example of what could've been

I don't think the Spurs want a head case like him.

Anyway, the Blazers secretly are hoping that he does not recover from his knee surgery anytime soon. If he doesn't make a come back then he is out of the public eye and insurance will pay back much of his contract to the Blazers organization. Darius has often been seen as lazy so reports originally came in saying he is not doing so well on his rehab. More recently some reports said he is working his butt off, while others still insist that he isn't doing enough to come back. If he does come back, look for the Blazers to start him at SF. Not because they want to necessarily, but because they need to show that he has recovered so they can trade him to another team.

It's a bit sad. He had just started to progress right before he got hurt

i saw him at a club about 2 weeks ago here in Portland. he looks like he is about 40 pounds over weight with some chickmunk cheeks! I asked him how his knee was doing and he ignored the question with, "what, i can't here you?" and i said it again and he said it again. I then gave him a pound and said good luck and he walked away. he also looked like he was smoked something early....

I highly doubt Pops would sign him....everyone knows he's a headcase and if the spurs were going to pick up someone for the 3 i think it will be Ime Udoka.

You never know

You forget that the Spurs offered a contract extension to THE NBA headcase at SF...Stephen Jackson...you...never...know

but I doubt San Antonio will take a shot on Darius...he will demand too much money...the teams I could see taking a shot on Darius is probably New York & Boston

That was also before Jackson's main incidents that gave him a real bad name. Miles' name is worse now than Jackson's was at that time plus Miles would cost more as you said.
