    Really not sure, beyond Darius Miles being an incredible waste of athletic ability.

    he was a blazer, had a big contract, got injured, missed a huge chunk of time & many thought he would retire....tried making a comeback this year & if he plays in 10 games then the blazers are on the hook for his previous contract

    Basically, yes. The point being that the 18m the Blazers are worried about was credited to them when the released him because his injury was deemed "career ending", meaning they can release him without paying his salary or having it count against the cap.

    The rub, of course, is that if Miles plays in 10 games according to the CBA his injury status as "career ending" is canceled, meaning that he treated as just being released by the Blazers, meaning they need to play him, as he could have, theoretically, played.
