Darius Miles resurfaces in Boston

The Celtics have signed oft-injured forward Darius Miles. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Darius … has impressed us with his progress, health, and attitude,” Ainge said. “Darius will have the next couple of months to prove to myself and Coach [Doc] Rivers that he can help us win.”

Miles, who was drafted out of East St. Louis High School, has posted career averages of 10.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.15 blocks in 412 NBA games.

“I’ve watched the Boston Celtics play a lot last year and loved what I saw in their teamwork and chemistry on the court, and it’s the team that I want to try to resume my career with,” Miles said in the team’s statement. “I am excited about having an opportunity to play on a team that I feel my personality fits with and a team that can have great success on the court.”

Miles has a reputation for being poisonous to a team’s chemistry, but I doubt he’ll have an adverse effect on what the Celtics have going. This is a low risk move that could reap solid rewards for the C’s. Miles has always been a talented player, so if he’s turned a corner with his work ethic, he could have a positive impact in Boston.
