TUESDAY, 4:01pm: Nets camp cut Quincy Miller has signed with the Serbian team Red Star Belgrade, aka Crvena Zvezda, according to international journalist David Pick (Twitter link), who confirms an earlier tweet from scout Vedran Modrić, who said the small forward would join the team (Twitter link). The deal is contingent on Miller clearing waivers from Brooklyn, which released the 22-year-old just this afternoon.
Miller, the 38th overall pick from 2012, split last season between the Kings and Pistons, who traded him to the Nets this past summer. He was a highly regarded prospect coming out of high school in 2011, when he was No. 5 in the Recruiting Services Consensus Index, right behind Bradley Beal. Injury has curtailed much of that promise since.
He’s nonetheless spent at least part of each of his three seasons as a pro on an NBA roster. It’s unclear if Miller’s deal with Red Star has any mechanism that would allow him to make it four NBA stints in four years. He grabbed six points and eight rebounds in about 30 minutes total during the preseason with the Nets.
