NBA: Grizzlies, G Mike Miller Agree to 2-Year Deal

Jul 25 2013, 10:44pm CDT | by

Guard Mike Miller, who was waived by the Miami Heat due to the amnesty clause, said he will return to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Memphis' WMCTV 5 confirms Miller has reached an agreement with the team, although the Grizzlies have not yet made any formal announcement. He played for Memphis from 2002-08, averaging a career-high 18.5 points per game in the 2006-07 NBA season.

Yardbarker.com reveals the deal is for two years. 

Miller himself also affirmed the deal with the Associated Press on Wednesday. This comes a week after the defending NBA champions Miami Heat designated him to be an amnesty player, ending his three-year tenure with them. He is still owed $12 million by the Heat over the next two seasons - an amount which will not count against their salary cap or luxury tax. 

He couldn't be more excited about his next tour of duty, per the Fort Lauderdale Sun Sentinel.  

"I feel great. I feel great. I'm excited about the next spot. I'm re-energized. I really am. I'm just feeling healthy. I'm ready to play. I started to get back in there again last week and I can't wait to play again next year. Honestly, it's disappointing, because, I think, being a part of this and going for a three-peat would have been an unbelievable ride and a story. But I've been blessed, as well. I came here and got two championships and I can't thank them (Heat) enough for the opportunity."

Miller, who still owns a house in Memphis, reportedly wanted to commit to a contender. The Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets were also seen to be interested in his services. 

Him signing with the Grizzlies should be a welcome development after battling an assortment of injuries in the past four seasons, even considering retirement after the Heat's first NBA title in 2012. 

The 33-year-old Miller played in 59 games forr Miami in 2012-13, averaging 4.8 points.

LeBron: We're Not A Big Three, We're A Big Fifteen

LeBron James is stressing the importance of the entire Cleveland Cavaliers' roster rather than repeat the Big 3 reputation of the Miami Heat while substituting Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love for Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. "We're not a Big Three, we're a team," James said afterwards. "We're a Big Fifteen." The Cavaliers will need significant contributions this season from the likes of Anderson Varejao, Sha ...

LeBron James Would Make An Awesome General Manager And Owner

Oct 11 2014 2:11pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

LeBron James has already disappointed in terms of Champion rings. There’s still plenty of time in his playing career, but probably not enough to surpass Michael Jordan, which was the unfair prophesy. As a player, LeBron will be hard-pressed to pass MJ’s Championship total. But what if James gets more rings after his career is done? What if James gets them as an owner and/or general manager? He’s an incredible manipulator of talent as a player. ...

Vince Carter Gives Memphis Grizzlies Exactly What They Need

Oct 9 2014 8:10am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Seldom do explosive athleticism and career longevity go together in today’s NBA, where having the former almost always means compromising the latter. Vince Carter, on the cusp of his 17th season in the league, is a notable exception. Once the game’s most feared high-flyer, the 37-year-old Carter has steadily augmented his game to become one of the league’s most reliable three-point specialists. So how can the Memphis Grizzlies—so stro ...

Contrasts Between Cavaliers and Heat Compelling Enough Without the Gossip

Oct 9 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL — The oddity was the honesty.    Erik Spoelstra is not particularly prone to emote from the podium, nor to allow himself to get sucked into what he derisively describes as "storylines." He's more likely to insist something doesn't matter, even when everyone with eyes and ears and sense knows it does, than to allow the slightest hint that it is affecting him or h ...

Why Cleveland Cavaliers Defense Can Be Better Than You Think

Oct 7 2014 5:57pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Cleveland Cavaliers will be defined by the offense of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, but that doesn't mean we should discount this title contender's potential on the other end. To be fair, it's easy to see why the consensus says the Cavs will be elite on offense: Irving is a ball-handling maestro, Love is the game's most prolific floor-spacing big and James is the most complete of ...
