HoopsHype Darius Miles rumors

Remember the time Patterson fined Darius Miles $150,000 and publicly scolded the small forward for berating his coach in a film session? I do. So does then-coach Maurice Cheeks. Because that act of support for Cheeks was followed by a back-room deal between Patterson and Miles in which the small forward would receive every penny of the fine back, plus interest. When I informed Cheeks of the arrangement, he said, "I might as well pack my bags." Oregonian

Prosecutors have filed a felony weapons charge against former NBA player Darius Miles for allegedly trying to take a loaded handgun through security at a St. Louis airport two months ago. St. Louis County prosecutors charged Miles on Friday with the unlawful use of a weapon, which carries a maximum four-year prison term, for allegedly trying to pass through Lambert Airport security with the gun in his carry-on bag on Aug. 3. Miles, 29, arrived at St. Louis County jail on Monday and posted 10 percent of his $15,000 bond before leaving, a jail official said. There is no phone number listed for Miles' home in the St. Louis suburb of Swansea, Ill., and he could not immediately be reached Wednesday for comment. His attorney, Scott Rosenblum, did not respond to phone messages Wednesday seeking comment. ESPN.com

I checked with Bobcats spokesman Josh Rosen, who told me they are having a camp in Orlando to prepare for the Orlando Summer League, and Miles is one of 19 players in the camp. From those 19, 12 to 15 will be on Charlotte's summer league team, so in essence, Miles has to survive a cut, but he could certainly be playing in the Orlando Summer League. It's not that crazy -- I've seen Amare Stoudemire and Ron Artest play in the Vegas Summer League. I asked Rosen how Miles has looked. "I thought he looked pretty good," Rosen said. "But what do I know, I'm just a PR guy." Oregonian
