According to the Boston Globe, Darius Miles recently worked out for the World Champion Boston Celtics and had an "impressive" showing. From the story: "An NBA source said the Celtics surprisingly worked out Blazers free agent small forward Darius Miles yesterday and he had an impressive workout. Miles missed last season while recovering from knee surgery." This has well-chronicled implications on the Blazers: if Miles returns to the NBA and plays in 10 games in a season, during either of the next two seasons, his salary will count against the Blazers' salary cap. The team is responsible for paying the remaining $27.25 million of his Blazers' contract, but it does not count against the team's cap because his knee injury was labeled career ending.

Miles won't be bad as backup imo...he is very athletic.

If his knee injuries are gone, he could be explosive off the bench.

..And we could hurt Portland's cap in the process, so giving him at least a workout isn't too bad.

when miles first came in the league i loved the kid, but another talent sidelined by key injury. nonetheless he is worth a look. might need to slim down too.

He was always pretty skinny, so a few pounds added while sitting out couldn't hurt.
