Former University of Kentucky standout Darius Miller is back in the NBA.
Kentucky's 2008 Mr. Basketball from Mason County will sign a 10-day contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a tweet by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports on Tuesday afternoon.
Miller has been out of the league since he was released by the New Orleans Pelicans on Nov. 30.
Miller appeared in five games with one start this season, averaging 0.4 points and 0.2 rebounds in 8.6 minutes per game.
Never miss a local story.
Miller was a 2012 second-round draft choice out of UK, where he won a national title with Pelicans All-Star forward Anthony Davis.
Miller's career averages in two-plus season with New Orleans were 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in 102 games.
Miller will be trying to hang on with a Clippers team (25-13) currently in sixth place in the Western Conference.
Prince on the move again?
Another former Wildcat, Tayshaun Prince, could be on the brink of becoming a free agent.
Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday that Prince is negotiating a buyout with the Boston Celtics.
Prince, 34, was acquired from Memphis as part of a three-team trade announced Monday.
Boston is in rebuilding mode and has no need for a veteran player such as Prince, who averaged 7.3 points in 24.2 minutes per game for the Grizzlies this season.
The Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Clippers and Oklahoma City Thunder are all potential landing spots for Prince, the Sports Illustrated report said.
