Darko Milicic is done. After bouncing around the league and overseas for the past few years, the Pistons’ No. 2 pick in the 2003 NBA draft has decided to call it quits, CBS Sports reported Sunday. In an interview with international publication MVP.rs, Milicic said, “No more chances. This is a done deal. Bygone.” The retirement comes less than a week after three of his draft mates (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) won another NBA championship with the Miami Heat. “Hence I wear a lot of bad experiences,” said Milicic, 28. “Guilt is mutual, it was bad moves with their with my hand. However, is not worth more to talk about. They think they should play a supporting role and wait for his chance. Understand why they have such an attitude. My NBA career speaks to me for such a player, and I know I’m not.” The quotes, CBS said, were a “rough translation” from Serbian. Detroit cut ties with Milicic during the 2005-06 season. He averaged 5.7 minutes, 1.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in his 2½ seasons with the Pistons. He played one game this season with the Celtics before being released and returning to Serbia.
