Former Miami Heat backup and three-point extraordinaire Mike Miller is receiving a lot of interest in NBA free agency now that the big names have found new homes.
One location very interested in what Miller brings to the table happens to the the Oklahoma City Thunder, another team attempting to get over the hump and pursue a championship.
While other teams such as the Memphis Grizzlies have been in touch with Miller, the Thunder reportedly have a meeting with the swingman on Monday according to Marc Stein of ESPN via Twitter:
Mike Miller latest: Word is Miller is in OKC as we speak in second face-to-face meeting w/Thunder. Another face-to-face w/Grizz on tap next
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 22, 2013
As you can see, Miller also has another meeting lined up with the Grizzlies. If the Thunder are serious about bringing him on board, they would be wise to not let him leave the meeting without a contract.
In Oklahoma City Miller would be an outstanding complement off the bench much in the same way he was in Miami. The Thunder need scoring off the bench and Miller could provide that in bunches thanks to his prowess from behind the distance line.
