Darko Milicic Puts NBA in Rear View, Will Compete in World Carp Classic Fishing Tournament

Darko MilicicDarko Milicic‘s roller coaster 10-year NBA career came to a close last November when he was released by the Celtics after playing in just one preseason game. Milicic had requested a release to return to Europe to be with his ailing mother, and the big man hadn’t really seen the spotlight after his departure from the C’s.

The folks over at Yahoo! Sports’ Ball Don’t Lie have seen Milicic resurface, though, and it’s not exactly where you might think. Taking a step further with what was once a hobby for Milicic, the former NBA center was spotted on the list of participants for this year’s World Carp Classic, an annual fishing tournament being held on Lake Bolsena in central Italy.

Milicic discussed his love of Carp fishing during Celtics training camp, so perhaps the 28-year-old has found his true calling after nearly a decade of trying the basketball thing.
