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.

After Kevin Love Trade, Cavaliers Deserve Same Scrutiny Heat Faced in 2010-11

Eddie House, known for his hair trigger jumper and his occasional obscene gesture, didn't make it to the end of the Miami Heat's Big Three era, getting the thumb prior to season two. Still, the veteran guard's quote from Miami's 2010 training camp, an utterance that many didn't find endearing, qualifies as among the most enduring. It spoke to the climate of LeBron James' first season in Miami ...

Why Ray Allen Should Spurn LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers in Free Agency

Aug 20 2014 9:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It won't be easy for Ray Allen to resist the siren song coming from the Cleveland Cavaliers and former running mate/recent vacation partner LeBron James, but right decisions are often the hardest to make. The Cavs can offer the 39-year-old a(nother) chance to run with the planet's best baller and do so in the context of a(nother) likely championship chase.

Kyrie Irving Admits He Hasn't Been a Leader for Cleveland Cavaliers

Aug 19 2014 8:49am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Talent, not leadership skills, led to Kyrie Irving's selection as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft. Fast-forward three years later, and the Cleveland Cavaliers floor general is still driving the same car that brought him here. The 22-year-old is relying on and fine-tuning his on-court skills: yo-yo handles, cotton-soft touch around the basket, a three-point stroke apt to catch fire at a moment's notice. As fo ...

The Cavaliers have built quality depth around LeBron James

Aug 17 2014 1:13pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Cleveland Cavaliers are ready to sign Shawn Marion and feel good about luring Ray Allen away from the temptation of retirement. LeBron James chose Cleveland over Miami with his heart set on returning home, but as a basketball decision it was nothing short of savvy. While bringing together a more youthful Big Three might be perceived as the determining factor, teaming with Kyrie Irving and (soon enough) Kevin Love may not be what tipped James' decision i ...
