Default Darius Miles

Hi all,

Darious miles has just been released by Boston. What do you guys think of picking him up. Just a hypothetical question as I am not taking into account our salary/trades etc. I think he would be a pretty good pick up for the right price, he is an athletic big man.

Toronto has been very finicky about the luxury tax. It'll take a pretty damn good player to make them change their mind.

I'd do it just to make him play 10 games and then drop him...

didnt he sign for the league minimum on boston? hes getting paid his contract by the insurance people so hes just looking for somewhere he can rebuild his career

i'd take a risk on him for the legaue minimum for sure, we'd then just need to package graham and parker for a competant SG

would love to give him another chance, however, the key here is luxury tax. Miles is not worth the risk.

Wow, 5 years ago I would have said I'm crazy for saying that, how Darius has fallen, I was a big supporter, he had all the tools to become a star, just too young...

hope he gets a shot though, I'm pretty sure he knew it was coming though, with athletes like giddens and walker already on the back end of the roster

If his head is on straight I'd take him over Adams.

Having Bargs at the SF position might give us one of the biggest teams in the league.

O'Neal-6'11"
Bosh-6'10"
Bargs-7'0"
Miles-6'10"
Calderon-6'3"

That would be one huge lineup....

Having Bargs at SF will make me a Suns supporter.
