Amnesty a great three-point shooter and every team that thinks they have a shot at the title comes out of the woodworks to try and sign him.

Reports are indicating that the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets are both pursuing Mike Miller now in addition to the Oklahoma City Thunder and Memphis Grizzlies.

Kevin Durant is helping with the recruiting for the Thunder.

 

Miller certainly will be getting the least amount of money possible if he chooses OKC over these other teams, who likely won’t be offering him much more if more at all.

Miller has said that he wants to go to a contender and it’s hard to argue there is a bigger contender than the Thunder.

Marc Gasol is reportedly heading up the recruiting charge for the Grizzlies. Houston has also reportedly formally made an offer to Miller.

I feel like Houston would have to be the destination that may be more attractive for Miller than OKC, if any. Obviously, with the addition of Dwight Howard to play alongside James Harden, the Rockets look like they are just a few pieces away from being a title contender.

The style of play the Rockets have is also conducive to Miller as Houston attempts as many threes as any team in the league and open shots for spot-up shooters would certainly be aplenty with Howard and Harden on the floor.

If the Thunder don’t end up landing Miller, it wouldn’t be the worst thing. He really doesn’t appear to have much left in the tank and his value wouldn’t prove its worth until the playoffs. The Thunder will be just fine without him but I’m not saying I don’t want him either.

    I think we should also go after fisher….fisher was a killer on a spot up 3

      Fisher was great in the playoffs last year but before then, gave us some really bad minutes and hurt us at times. I’m not totally against him but am worried that bringing him back might mean less minutes for Jeremy Lamb.

    Miller may end up being cold on most nights thus a defensive liability.

      I agree. There is no guarantee Miller will be a consistent contributor. Just might be a big asset for a few games in the playoffs.
