According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets have emerged as suitors for sharpshooter Mike Miller.

Miller, a 34-year-old University of Florida alum, spent last season with the Memphis Grizzlies, and is said to be considering all three destinations, as well as the Denver Nuggets. Jeff Goodman of ESPN detailed the offers Miller was weighing in a recent Tweet.
Cavs offer to Miller is for two years and about 5.5 million while Denver offering 3 years and 12 million, source told ESPN.

Since Saturday, Goodman has indicated that Miller seems to be leaning toward joining the Nuggets over Houston, Dallas and Cleveland. Houston lost out on both Chris Bosh and Chandler Parsons in recent days and have failed to land any of their offseason targets thus far. Losing out on Miller would be a lesser blow, but would also equal missing out on one of the best three-point shooters in the NBA today.
Denver, meanwhile, is looking to bounce back from a 36-46 season a year ago and lacks major star power in the Mile High City. Miller would add depth to a team full of solid names on its roster.
