BOSTON (AP) - Reggie Miller has made up his mind. He's staying retired.
A Boston Celtics spokesman says Miller, who turned 42 today, notified the Celtics of his decision after having several conversations with executive director of basketball operations Danny Ainge (aynj) during the past two weeks.
The NBA's career leader in 3-pointers retired two years ago after an 18-year pro career, spent entirely with the Indiana Pacers. He never won an NBA championship, and the overhauled Celtics are considered contenders.
Ainge's discussions with Miller surfaced after the Celtics obtained 2004 NBA MVP Kevin Garnett from Minnesota on July 31st. They already had traded for seven-time All-Star Ray Allen on draft day. Those two join Paul Pierce, who has spent all nine of his NBA seasons with Boston, to make a formidable threesome in what last season was a mediocre Eastern Conference.
