Darius Miles Dismissed
Darius Miles was dismissed from the Celtics yesterday. Good thing for the Blazers... If Miles had played 10 games this season for another team, the Blazers would be required to pay his $9 million dollar a year salary (with 2 years remaining). If he doesn't play 10 games, the Blazers get to keep that $9 million for Portland's 2009-2010 salary cap. It probably didn't help Miles' case when he failed a drug test in late September, stating he wasn't sure how he failed. Many people still believe that a team may pick up Miles and play him 10 games just to keep the Blazers away from that cap money.
