Miles is returning to the team with whom he played the only 118 minutes of his NBA career, way back in November and December 2005. Since that time, he has been in Europe doing what he does best; passing, playmaking, being small, and not making jumpshots. He is good in this role, and is a successful player regardless of whether or not he ever makes it back to the NBA, but for as long as he continues to shoot 19% from the European three point line (like he did last year with Aris in the Euroleague), then he will struggle to ever make it back.

Aaron Miles - Miles is currently in the D-League, and he's the best half court point guard anywhere in it. He leads the D-League in assists per game at 9.2 (Terrence Williams and Jonny Flynn both have more, but played only 5 games total on assignment), and turns it over only 2.8 times per game in the process. Miles also pours in a useful 15.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.5 steals per game as well, while shooting 52% from the floor. The fact that he has 0 made three pointers on the season does nothing to prevent him from breaking down defenses.

There can surely only be one reason why Miles, a player clearly capable of playing in the Euroleague, is in the D-League. It's the same reason he went to training camp with the Warriors. He's trying to get back into the NBA. Could he do it, despite his small stature and still-absent jumpshot? Quite possibly.

   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 45

- Aaron Miles

Miles is signed with Aris in Greece, winding up there after failing to make the Hawks regular season roster out of training camp. He is averaging 8.4 points and 3.5 assists per game in the Eurocup, alongside 6.8/3.0 in the Greek league. He still can't shoot threes, but Aris have enough of that from elsewhere. Just being in the Aris backcourt for the whole year has been quite an achievement in itself, for Aris have turned over quite a bit of their backcourt this year (Matt Walsh in, Juan Dixon out, Ivan Paunic in, Quinton Day out), and have been linked to about 400 other players (Rob Kurz and Vuk Radivojevic being the only two I can remember at the moment, although they're also currently in talks with Jeremiah Massey). So it's not been a bad year for Aaron.
