Miller free, likely to sign with Thunder?
By Nick Borges
Mike Miller cleared waivers on Thursday after none of the teams with cap room put in a claim. A good amount of teams have probably called his agent, however all of them may be trailing the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Ethan J. Skolnick of the Palm Beach Post.
Skolnick writes: "While Miller played in Memphis for several seasons and enjoyed it, and while the Grizzlies desperately need a shooter, my educated hunch is that he will land in Oklahoma City. The Thunder have minutes to offer with Kevin Martin gone and Jeremy Lamb still raw, and they have a first-hand appreciation (from the 2012 NBA finals) of Miller’s shooting ability. While many players don’t like to play in one of the NBA’s smaller cities, it suits Miller and his family just fine."
The Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs and a few other teams may check out Miller, however between the money and minutes, he'll likely end up with Memphis or the Thunder.
