Buyout for Darko?
Everyone knows Milicic and the Knicks are headed for a divorce, it’s just a matter of when: “The Knicks and Darko Milicic could be headed toward a buyout. Milicic, who has already stated that he plans to continue his career in Europe next season, was conspicuously missing from Thursday night’s game against the Bobcats. The 7-footer has become such an afterthought that the Knicks did not even bother to reveal that he did not show up for work. Milicic’s agent, Marc Cornstein, confirmed that his client was missing due to ‘personal reasons’ and said that Milicic would rejoin the team today. Knicks president Donnie Walsh would not rule out the possibility that Milicic may not finish the season in New York but quickly added, ‘He practices hard and kept himself in shape. It’s not like he’s pulling some kind of rebellion or something. His agent hasn’t asked me for trades. The only thing I heard Darko say is that he’s going to Europe next year.”‘
