Miles, who nearly made a comeback with the Celtics in 2008 after microfracture surgery on his right knee sidelined him for two seasons, is attempting another run at an NBA return with Charlotte this summer.
Miles boasts 446 NBA games and 11,729 minutes played for his career. By comparison, the Celtics' entire 12-man summer roster features a total of one regular-season game of NBA experience.
