Pro career

After being selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 1997 NBA Draft (34th overall), Milič's rights were traded to the Phoenix Suns. After seeing limited NBA duty (44 career games) during his two seasons with the Suns, he returned to Europe and played for Union Olimpija (where he started playing senior basketball, now serving his third stint), Real Madrid (two stints), Fortitudo Bologna (Italian League runner-up), Pesaro (2004 Italian Cup finalist) and Virtus Bologna. He also represented Fenerbahçe in the first part of the 1998-99 season, due to the NBA season's lockout, returning to Phoenix in January 1999.
