Darko Milicic Signs 1-Year, Guaranteed Contract With Celtics, According To Report

The Boston Celtics will sign center Darko Milicic to a one-year contract some time next week, according to a report by A. Sharrod Barkley of Comcast SportsNet New England. The deal will be for the veteran's minimum.

Milicic reportedly had more lucrative offers to play in Europe but opted to sign in Boston instead. For the Celtics, the deal is low-risk, high-reward because they are only committed to one season at a minimum salary. The 7'0 center is expected to compete with Chris Wilcox, Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo and Jason Collins for playing time as the backup to Kevin Garnett.

With training camp set to begin on Sept. 29, the Celtics will now carry 14 guaranteed contracts, which means there is only one spot remaining for players with non-guaranteed deals.
