Apparently, it’s the year to be a free agent who can shoot the rock. We’ve already heard that at least twelve teams have shown interest in Anthony Morrow and a handful have also put out feelings on Jimmer Fredette. Yes, that Jimmer Fredette.
Now it’s Mike Miller’s turn as the veteran is drawing interest from a handful of teams including the Oklahoma City Thunder, Los Angeles Clippers, Houston Rockets and the Denver Nuggets. Also interested are Miller’s former team, the Memphis Grizzlies.
Miller of course is no longer the player he once was as he no longer brings with him the defensive tenacity or athletic ability he had in his younger days, but he can still shoot as Miller drained nearly 50 percent of his baskets last season alone. That might not be as impressive as his 48 percentage from behind the arc on nearly three deep balls per game.
Numbers like that likely have teams looking for one or two additional bench pieces to make a potential playoff run salivating, which is why you see so many teams with championship aspirations (Clippers, Thunder, Rockets) showing interest in the former Rookie of the Year award winner.
There’s been no indication as to which way Mike Miller is leaning at this point, though he certainly has a tough decision looming considering the amount of high level teams showing interest. It’s also worth noting that Mike Miller seems to hold the Memphis Grizzlies near to his heart as he’s played parts of seven seasons with the organization so he could possibly return yet again in the right scenario.
