   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)
2011-01-05

Darius Miles - Miles signed with the Bobcats in preseason, seemingly in anticipation of an extended comeback. But he did not make the team and has not yet signed elsewhere. The comeback might be over, but I'm willing to bet that the party isn't.

   The best of what's left
2010-07-30

Darius Miles - Miles returned from what was believed to be a career ending injury to play for Memphis in 2008-09, amidst a hugely unpleasant soap opera. And despite all the drama, even in spite of having to re-invent himself as a smaller big man, he actually wasn't bad. He played less than 300 minutes but posted a PER of 16.1, which would have tied his career best had he played a more significant number of minutes. He chipped in with some rebounds, blocked a ton of shots, and even found a free throw stroke for somewhere, no longer the world-beating athlete of his youth but still a good one, even after the supposedly career ending knee injury. However, this was all undermined when it was revealed that Memphis were worried about Miles's poisonous attitude, which became the reason why they did not invite him back. Of all the things Miles needs to work on - health, staying in shape, jumpshot, ball skills, not smoking pot - this one must come first if this comeback is ever to get anywhere.

Darius Miles

Speaking of pot, here's Darius Miles. After his painful soap opera of a comeback attempt in the 2008/09 season ended with Memphis actively encouraging him to leave and an arrest for pot possession, Miles sat out last season, ostensibly to "get back into playing shape." He's now back again, again, and ready to make his comeback's comeback.

- Darius Miles

Darius has a year like Mihm. He has done nothing. He too was a Grizzly to end last season, the compelling protagonist in that slightly terrible scandal that ended with Portland paying luxury tax and signing Andre Miller. He played fairly well for Memphis as a backup power forward, too. But the team made no effort to bring him back, supposedly due to his bad attitude, and Darius has been remained unsigned all year. (It didn't help that he got arrested just as the season ended.) He continued to pick up $9 million in salary this year via Portland/the insurance company, so he hasn't NEEDED to play, but it's quite the anticlimactic ending from a man whose "comeback" was such big news last season.
