Celtics waive Darko Milicic

It's now official. The Celtics honored Darko Milicic's request and waived him on Wednesday. Milicic asked to be released in order to remain home with his sick mother in Serbia. His mother's illness, along with his diminished role with the Celtics encouraged him to walk away from the NBA.

"It's pretty much unemotional because you never got a chance," said Rivers. "I'd like to have had the opportunity, I thought we were building him. But you know how I feel about all the other stuff outside of basketball- I think it's more important"
Although there has been reports that the Celtics have been looking to trade for Phoenix center Marcin Gortat, nothing has been confirmed.

Coach Rivers also added that the Celtics are in no rush to replace Milicic. We will keep you posted.
