At the risk of snapping our "consecutive posts with 100+ comments" streak, a quick note to say that Darius Miles played in the first half of tonight's game between Memphis and Minnesota.
So that's two down and eight to go. Memphis does play tomorrow so there's a chance he can get 3 games in prior to the team's decision to guarantee or not guarantee his deal for the rest of the year. Whether he sticks with the Grizzlies should be known tomorrow , as originally reported.
Blogfather had a short piece about players getting cut, clearing waivers, etc. prior to the January 10th deadline that you should check out if you haven't already.
Also, no surprise here, but Chad Ford mentioned the usual trade suspects in his chat today...
Blazers have a ton of assets they'll most likely try to move by the trade deadline including guys like Channing Frye, Sergio Rodriguez, Ike Diogu and possibly Travis Outlaw.
Unrelated to anything but have you seen Lowposts.com? Definitely worth a read. PG13.
UPDATE (11:14PM): Darius Miles was waived tonight. Story courtesy, as always, of Ronald Tillery.
Darius Miles logged seven minutes Tuesday night, the last time he'll see in a Memphis uniform.
At least for the foreseeable future.
The Grizzlies waived Miles soon after their 94-87 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The 6-9 forward was told of the team's decision before the players and coaches boarded a plane for New Jersey, where the Griz play tonight.
