The Cleveland Cavaliers have been chasing Mike Miller for the past few days following their deal to bring LeBron James back to the place he started his career.
It’s been a slow go of things for the Cavs though following the annoucement that LeBron James will be returning to Cleveland but the team has landed its first free agent and it’s a guy that LeBron James badly wanted to play with again.
According to Yahoo! Sports insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached an agreement with free agent sharpshooter Mike Miller on a two years deal.

The deal is something that should very much keep LeBron James a happy man, as he was lobbying for Miller to be signed by the Cavaliers and that’s what has happened. Miller has been a part of the only two titles LeBron James has ever won, which is something that the Cavs star likely isn’t chalking up to coincidence.
