The New Orleans Hornets assigned former UK forward Darius Miller to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League Monday.
The Times-Picayune reports Miller was inactive Saturday when the Hornets faced the Charlotte Bobcats with the return of guard Eric Gordon.
Miller has seen limited playing time. The former Cat appeared in 23 games, averaging just two points in about 13 minutes of playing time. The New Orleans paper says the assignment will offer Miller more playing time and the opportunity to gain professional experience.
Miller was a New Orleans second round draft pick last summer.
