Comeback kaput? Miles waived again

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies waived forward Darius Miles, who was trying to make a comeback after a two-year absence following knee surgery.

Miles was cut by the Boston Celtics in the preseason and signed with Memphis on Dec. 13. The 27-year-old Miles also served a 10-game league suspension after his signing for violating the league's drug policy.

The third overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2000 NBA draft became the first player in league history drafted straight out of high school to earn All-Rookie honors.

Miles holds career averages of 10.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.15 blocks in 27.6 minutes in 414 career games with Memphis, the Los Angeles Clippers, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Portland Trail Blazers.
