Mike Miller was scoreless in just two minutes of action vs. the Jazz on Friday.
Miller choosing to go to the Nuggets seemed like an odd choice for a team that is clearly rebuilding, and it's obvious that his role will be very sporadic. He is averaging just 1.8 points in 4.6 minutes per game this season, so he doesn't belong on any fantasy rosters. Nov 6 - 10:18 AM

Nuggets sign G/F Mike Miller.

He's been linked to the Nuggets for a few days now and finally clearing waivers allowed him to sign a one-year deal. Miller won't have fantasy value.
Sep 30 - 6:59 PM

Mike Miller cleared waivers, as expected.

The Nuggets should be signing him shortly. Miller will not have fantasy value in almost any league.
Sep 30 - 5:24 PM

The Nuggets have extended a one-year offer to Mike Miller, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Once Miller officially clears waivers, Denver can sign the veteran to a deal. The Nuggets have been searching far and wide for veterans who can set the right tone in the locker room after a dismal 2014-15 season, and Miller would be a step in the right direction even if he can't offer much on the court at this point in his career.

The Nuggets are reportedly interested in soon-to-be free agent Mike Miller.

Miller could help serve as a veteran presence in the locker room for the Nuggets, but he wouldn't have any fantasy value playing limited minutes behind Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler.

Mike Miller has reportedly reached an agreement on a buyout with the Trail Blazers, and he will now enter free agency.

Miller will not be claimed off waivers, so he'll be free to join a team of his choosing. However, the 35-year-old hasn't had a statistically relevant season since 2007 with regards to standard fantasy leagues, and that fact is unlikely to change based on his jersey.

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.

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.
