Former Kentucky shooting guard Darius Miller is coming back to America. After winning three consecutive German League titles, David Bick reports Miller will return to the NBA to play with the New Orleans Pelicans.
Kentucky’s 2008 Mr. Basketball from Mason County will be in a familiar setting. Reunited with his National Championship teammate Anthony Davis, Miller is back on the team that drafted him with the 46th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.
Miller averaged 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds per game in 102 games over the course of two-and-a-half years with New Orleans. After bouncing back-and-forth between the NBA and D-League, he found success with Brose Bamberg in the German’s Bundesliga. A three-time champion, last year he was the MVP of the championship series; this year he averaged 12 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists in a three-game championship series sweep.
Miller could be the fourth Wildcat on New Orleans’ 2017-18 roster. Along with Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, James Young is searching for a roster spot with the Pelicans in this year’s Summer League. Click here to hear from Young following today’s mini-camp.
