Darius Miller appears to be returning to the USA and rejoin some former Kentucky Wildcats.

According to NBA reporter David Pick, Miller has agreed to a deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, reuniting him with DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis:

Miller played with Cousins during the 2009-10 season in Lexington as a sophomore. The former Maysville star would go on to help lead UK to back-to-back Final Four trips over the next two seasons, including an NCAA championship in the 2011-12 season with Davis.

Coming out of college, Miller was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NBA Draft by the Pelicans, where he would spend much of the next three years before being waived.

Since then, Miller has spent time in Germany playing professional ball, but the desire to play in the NBA never left him. It’s good to see him get another chance to continue living his NBA dream.
