Small forward Darius Miller has signed with Brose Baskets Bamberg, the team announced (translation via Sportando’s Emiliano Carchia). The third-year pro joins Gal Mekel among the ex-Pelicans signing overseas today. New Orleans drafted Miller 46th overall in 2012 and re-signed him this past summer, but the team waived him in November despite a $400K partial guarantee. Miller’s deal with Bamberg runs until season’s end, according to the team’s statement.
The Clippers appeared to have a 10-day deal in place with the 24-year-old last month, but they signed Dahntay Jones instead. The Clips have a pair of open roster spots, as our roster counts show, and coach/executive Doc Rivers has pointed to the post-deadline buyout period as the time to fill those vacancies, but it appears as though Miller is not an option for the team.
Miller saw fairly significant playing time in 2013/14, averaging 4.4 points in 16.1 minutes per game for New Orleans, but his role shrunk to encompass only 8.7 MPG in five appearances during the early going for the Pelicans this season. He was a solid outside shooter in his final two seasons at Kentucky and as a rookie, but last season his three-point accuracy dipped to 32.5%.
