Darko Milicic Clears Waivers, Becomes Unrestricted Free Agent

New, comment

The Minnesota Timberwolves used their amnesty clause on Darko Milicic earlier this week in order to clear cap space to sign Nicolas Batum. Saturday, Milicic joined the pool of unrestricted free agents after going unclaimed during the waiver process.

The Timberwolves signed Milicic to a four-year, $20 million contract in 2010 and will still be on the hook for the remaining $7 million guaranteed on the deal. Where Milicic goes from here remains a question. While no team was interested in claiming his contract, it's possible he could still sign with a NBA team for less. It's also possible Milicic will leave the NBA and continue his career in Europe.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft, Milicic has career averages of 6.0 points and 4.2 rebounds.
