Mike Miller Agrees to Two-year Deal with the Cavs
Mike Miller has officially signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers!
Apparently, the Cavs aren’t the only thing LeBron wants back. This time, he gets Mike Miller.
Miller postponed his talks with the Denver Nuggets, where he might be able fetch a more lucrative offer. However, playing alongside LeBron for a championship was, indeed, a pretty great selling point that Miller can never say no to.
The Cavs have been aggressive in trying to build a solid team around LeBron. Now that King James is forming his new Big Three with Irving and Wiggins, the Cavaliers want to surround them with great mid-level players. Reportedly, Cleveland has also reached out to unrestricted free agent Ray Allen, try to steal him from the heat and gather shooters to round out their roster.
Miller will probably be on the same program he’s been on for the past few years, with playing time concerns during the regular season as he gears up for postseason ball.
Mike Miller will sign a two-year, $5.5 million deal with the Cavaliers. The second year will be a player option and it’s apparent how much Miller values the opportunity to play for a championship with LeBron James in Cleveland – the Rockets and Nuggets had both offered him significantly more money. Miller was tremendous from downtown last year, making 45.9 percent of his 3-pointers, but he’s purely a specialist for fantasy purposes.
But for sure, Miller will bring his championship attitude to Cleveland as he is a constant threat from rainbow country and can be a feisty on-ball defender. The only question that remains as of now is, how good will he gel with his new team?
