Mike Miller reportedly approved the trade to the Blazers because it's a team where he could get playing time.
We're sure that the $400,000 trade kicker he received didn't hurt, either. The argument that Miller wanted minutes in Portland over a chance at a ring on LeBron James' team is interesting, especially since this very well could be Miller's final season. Depending on what you read, Miller may have also asked for a trade, which would have also been a weird decision. As an aside, LeBron is reportedly "OK with the move." Last time his team let Miller walk in Miami, it was a different reaction. As for Miller, the Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavericks are reportedly already interested in his services. Jul 27 - 9:08 AM

Mike Miller was traded to the Blazers on Sunday, along with Brendan Haywood and two future second-round picks.

It was a straight salary-dump for the Cavaliers, who cleared roster space and came away with trade exceptions worth roughly $13.4 million. Miller has a guaranteed $2.8 million salary this season but the Blazers are expected to negotiate a buyout so that he can sign with a contender, essentially netting Portland two second-round picks for less than Miller's salary and the temporary use of cap space. The Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavericks have emerged as potential landing spots for Miller, who isn't a viable fantasy option no matter which jersey he's wearing.

Mike Miller has opted into his $2.8 million option for 2015-16, according to Real GM.

This isn't a surprise as Miller will get another crack at postseason options at a rate that he probably can't get elsewhere. Whether or not he has anything in the tank at that point is debatable at best.
Jun 30 - 1:20 AM

Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer said that he would be shocked if Mike Miller didn't exercise his $2.8 million player option for next season.

Miller has been used sporadically throughout the playoffs, but his relationship with LeBron James will likely keep him in Cleveland. Head coach David Blatt hinted that he could dive deeper into his bench for Game 5, so Miller and Shawn Marion could both see some action tonight. If Miller does return to Cleveland next season, his limited role as a sharpshooter will keep him off the fantasy radar.
Jun 14 - 1:28 PM

Mike Miller said he talked to Kevin Durant and endorsed Thunder head coach Billy Donovan.

Durant reportedly called to ask about Donovan and Miller said he had nothing but great things to say about his former college coach. "Just told Kevin that he’d enjoy Coach. He has a great demeanor for the game," Miller said. "For me, that’s huge, especially at this level. He’ll have a lot more time to just focus on basketball, doesn’t have to recruit and those outside basketball obligations. But he’ll be prepared." We'll see how the Donovan-Durant pairing works once the season starts, but count Mike Miller as one who thinks the partnership will be a fruitful one.
Jun 9 - 11:05 AM

Mike Miller had an extended workout after shootaround, which would suggest that he may be able to get into the rotation for Sunday's Game 3 in Cleveland.

Of the Cavs 12 playoff games thus far, Miller has only left the bench for three of them. He may step into a minimal role for Game 3, but he's extremely unlikely to show up in any meaningful way on the stat sheet. He's not a fantasy option.
May 24 - 5:32 PM

Mike Miller will come off the bench on Wednesday for Game 2 against the Bulls, with Tristan Thompson set to move into the starting lineup.

Miller played just 16 minutes in a start during Game 1, but he produced just three points (a 3-pointer) on 1-of-2 shooting with five boards and one block. Miller didn't play at all in the previous series against Boston, so it will be interesting to see if he is still part of the rotation moving forward. J.R. Smith is suspended for one more game, so Miller's best chance for minutes will likely be tonight.
May 6 - 9:19 AM

Mike Miller logged 16 minutes in Monday's Game 1 start, scoring three points on 1-of-2 shooting with five rebounds and one block.

David Blatt said that he was considering a lineup change after the Cavs' loss and Miller's position would be a primary place to look. Even in the best of situations there's not much for owners to look at here.
May 4 - 10:39 PM

Mike Miller is leaning toward picking up the $2.8 million player option for the 2015-16 season.

It's hard to see how Miller would turn it down for anything other than retirement. He's not going to make more than the veteran's minimum on the open market in free agency, and Miller has been an afterthought for the Cavs this season. Once again, he's enjoying the ride alongside LeBron.
Feb 23 - 9:30 AM

Mike Miller finished Tuesday's loss in Phoenix with only one rebound in eight minutes off the bench.

Miller had been a place-holder in the starting lineup for the past few weeks, averaging a mere 2.8 points on 28.6 percent shooting during the eight games LeBron James missed. The waiver wire is Miller's permanent home, especially with LBJ healthy and J.R. Smith stealing minutes on the wings.
Jan 13 - 11:50 PM

Mike Miller will be replaced in the starting lineup by LeBron James (knee, back) on Tuesday.

Coach David Blatt opted to keep J.R. Smith in the starting lineup instead and it will be interesting to see if the move sticks. Regardless, Miller is too injury-prone to be trusted and his limited role off the bench certainly isn't going to help him. Miller can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 13 - 8:26 PM

Mike Miller earned another start for the Cavs but finished scoreless with only two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 19 minutes vs. the Hawks.

Injury woes have thrust Miller into a big role over the past four games, averaging 27 minutes, but he's only worth a look if you're desperate for 3-point shooting.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 10:10:00 PM

Mike Miller started Tuesday's game but was invisible, going scoreless with one assist in a mere eight minutes of action.

The veteran sharp-shooter picked up a few quick fouls and never got on track, ceding the court to Dion Waiters (27 minutes) and Shawn Marion (26 minutes). Miller's occasional 3-point barrages are a nice surprise for anyone deploying him in ultra-deep leagues, but he's irrelevant for most fantasy owners.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 10:54:00 PM

Mike Miller started Sunday's game despite his recent ankle injury, posting one rebound, four assists and zero points in just 16 minutes vs. Memphis.

The Grizzlies give up 8.5 threes per game to their opponents, which is the seventh-fewest in the NBA, but Miller's struggles were due more to Dion Waiters' catching fire off the bench. Miller isn't a fantasy asset in 12-team leagues, though his perimeter shooting gives him specialist appeal in deeper formats.

Mike Miller (ankle) will play Sunday vs. Memphis.

Miller was able to put up 21 points on 7-of-8 shooting during his last outing, but going up against a tough Memphis squad, it's unlikely he'll be able to repeat that production. Miller is a risky option in daily leagues.
