ESPN.com is reporting that the Memphis Grizzlies have signed Darko Milicic and his sweet jumper (pictured below) to a three-year deal. Ric Bucher is citing anonymous sources saying the deal is for 3 years at $21 million total.
This was to be expected. The Sixers had publicly expressed interest at Darko, but they couldn’t offer more than their mid-level, or $5.3M per year. Darko should fit right in with the Griz who rely on a soft euro and long-hair shooting guard to tank games. Chad Ford said this signing fits in perfectly with Memphis’ up-tempo philosophy.
Anyway, the list of bigs on the free agent market now stands at: Joe Smith, Mikki Moore, Chris Mihm and Michael Sweetney. That’s the order I’d rank them as well. Come on Joe, you know you want to play in Philly. Skiles is a douche.
