Darko Milicic making basketball comeback in Serbia
Former Piston Darko Milicic failed at kickboxing. Now he is back to playing basketball.
But don't worry; he is not headed to Detroit.
The Serbian media company Novoski is reporting that Milicic, 29, plans on joining KK Metalac Valjevo of the Adriatic League. The team's website lists Milicic as a reserve player for next season.
"I was feeling a little homesick for basketball," Milicic told Novoski.
Milicic is considered one of the NBA's all-time biggest busts. He was selected second overall in the 2003 NBA draft by former Pistons president Joe Dumars -- ahead of Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade.
MIlicic played for the Pistons from 2003-06 and averaged 1.6 points a game. He bounced around with six teams and last played in the NBA for the Celtics in 2012.
