Is Homesick Darko Milicic Planning to Return to Europe?


Milicic, who also will be a 2010 free agent, said his change of address could see him returning to Europe.

"I lot of days I think that," Milicic said, "because the only way to be me is in Europe. I don’t want to be a defensive player the rest of my career. It’s not really what I want to do."

"In Europe, I can be a different player with the ball going through me," Milicic said. "Here, you take a shot and you just don’t want to miss. You think too much.

"I want to get my confidence back on the offensive end. I want the ball to go through me so I can have a chance to miss without worrying about it. And I want a chance to make plays. (Europe) has good basketball, and it would be closer to home."
