Miles was born on October 9, 1981 in Belleville, Illinois. He went to East St. Louis Lincoln High School where he played basketball as a power forward.

In 2001, he played his first season with the Clippers and earned NBA All-Rookie Team. The same year, he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers and then to Portland Trail Blazers. His time with Blazers was somewhat controversial. He had a frequent clash with then coach Maurice Cheeks where he reportedly insulted Cheeks with racial slurs. But on the court, he was successful and scored a career-high of 47 points in a loss against Denver Nuggets.

His next season was hit badly by injuries. He severely injured his right knee and five days later on April 15, 2006, he played his 40th and last game of the season. He also missed the entire 2006-07 season and 2007-08 season with injury.

Miles was then released from his contract and got a chance to practice with Boston Celtics in 2008, but was not invited to play for the team. On December 13, 2008, he signed with Memphis Grizzlies and made his debut against Dallas Mavericks. On January 30, 2009 the Grizzlies signed Miles for the rest of 2008-09 season.

Despite earning $62 million in his NBA career, he filed for bankruptcy on September 18, 2016. Darius Miles net worth is well below his standard. Currently, his net worth stands to be in the negative figure of $1 million.
