Timberwolves sign Miller, place Olowokandi on injured list

December 13, 2003

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves signed journeyman center Oliver Miller on Saturday, and placed Michael Olowokandi on the injured list while he recovers from surgery on his right knee.

Olowokandi is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Miller has not played in the NBA since 2000, when he was with Phoenix. He averaged 7.9 points and 6.2 rebounds in an eight-year career that included stops in Detroit, Toronto, Dallas and Sacramento.

Miller, a 6-foot-9, 315-pound center, spent the past two-plus seasons in the CBA.

Olowokandi, who signed as a free agent in July after five seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, averaged 6.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 15 games this season.

I for one thought it was funny

Is this some sort of comeback for the out-of-shape and under-sized center?

And if Miller can lose a little weight he just might make that goal. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif
