John Denton of Florida Today, reports that only three other teams (Milwaukee, Minnesota, and Atlanta) are capable of offering Darko more than the MLE:
Milicic is a restricted free agent, meaning the Magic have the right to match any offer he receives. [Milicic’s agent, Marc] Cornstein said he received calls from "half the teams in the league," but only four of them -- Milwaukee, Minnesota, Atlanta and Orlando -- can offer him more than the mid-level exception ($5.5 million).Any of those teams would be help themselves by acquiring a 22-year-old big man with some potential for improvement but none of those teams should want to make Darko Milicic their second-highest paid player. Milicic is young enough that he could still have a major contract offer the next time he hits free agency. I don't think he should forgo contributing to a good team for the MLE in the hopes that a bad team signs him to an expensive deal because they hope he will someday be worth it.
