  • Darius Miller will head to Germany, leaving his American basketball career behind him…for now. Miller is from Maysville, Ky and was named Kentucky’s Mr. Basketball in 2008. He was also apart of the 2012 UK National Championship team his senior year and earned the the SEC’s 6th man of the year award. He was drafted as the 46th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft as a small forward for the New Orleans Hornets (who are now, as you know, are the Pelicans). Miller spent two full seasons with the Pelicans before being waved on November 30th of last year. While in the NBA Miller averaged 3.1 PPG, 1.3 APG, and .9 RPG.

    Bamberg’s Head Coach Andrea Trincieri had favorable things to say when discussing his new forward.

    "Darius is a versatile wing player that can play two positions. He is very athletic and has a good three pointer and has a high basketball IQ."

    Darius will join a few other recognizable names on the Bamberg roster, which includes former Pittsburgh Panther Brad Wanamaker, Marquette’s Trevor Mbakwe, and Xavier’s Josh Duncan.
