The Cleveland Cavaliers pulled off an amazing feat on Friday when they convinced LeBron James to come back home to Ohio and play the next four years of his career for the team he burned so badly four years ago.
It seems like an eternity since LeBron left the Cavaliers to sign with the Miami Heat but the King has returned and he’s bringing friends along for the ride. According to Sam Amico from Fox Sports Ohio, the Cavaliers are closing in on a deal for Mike Miller to add him to their excellent free agent haul.

Of course, it’s not a done deal but the Cavaliers landing Miller is something that we could have seen coming after LeBron decided to return. Miller was being recruited by LeBron should he decide to sign somewhere other than Miami, and now that LeBron has indeed left Miami, Miller is the first friend he’s asked who has seemingly signed on.
It’s a great steal for the Cavaliers, who will happily take Miller’s three-point sharpshooting and add to a roster that continues to look more and more like NBA Finals favorites this upcoming season.
