As most of you know, Darko has signed with the Celtics. Most fans are throwing up at the thought of Darko in a Celtics uniform. Is it a bad deal? I don't think so, but he's not great by any means. He'll always be remembered for being a bust. At the end of the day, the Celtics need to compete against the Lakers, and being big as possible is the key. They have two of the best bigs in the game, and the Celtics need guys that can foul them, or hopefully play solid defense on them for stretches. Thankfully Howard is a poor free throw shooter.
Darko may see playing time, or he may not. The Celtics have Wilcox, Sullinger, Collins, and Fab on the bench already. This is a true gang of bigs. As a veteran-minimum signing, Milicic is a low-risk addition. I don't see Darko playing over Wilcox, Sullingr, and Collins. But if a Big goes down. The Celtics have insurance. Again most fans are mad about this, but at the end of the day this deal is not going to break the Celtics. The Celtics are paying him peanuts in NBA money.
