Mike Miller acknowledged that he'll play a smaller role with the Cavaliers this season, given their depth and surfeit of 3-point shooters.

"This team, as good as it looks on paper, if we’re going to be successful, people are going to have to sacrifice – whether it’s minutes, shots or financially," Miller said. "That’s the commitment it takes to win a championship." Miller's 3-point prowess won't be as critical with Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and even James Jones on the roster, but he's still a viable specialist in deeper leagues.

Mike Miller said he joined the Cavs because they gave him the best chance to win.

"Where I'm at in my career right now, it's all about giving yourself the best opportunity to win. I felt like this gave me the best opportunity to do that," Miller said. "Teaming up with him again is a blessing and we hope to make the most of it." He's expected to come off the bench and won't have much fantasy value.

The Cavaliers officially signed Mike Miller on Tuesday.

Miller's contract is worth $5.6 million with a player option for the second year, and it contains a 15 percent trade kicker. The 34-year-old's back problems weren't an issue last season, as he played in all 82 regular season games and seven postseason games, and he'll fill his usual role as a 3-point specialist off the bench in Cleveland.
Aug 5 - 6:42 PM

Mike Miller will sign a two-year, $5.5 million deal with the Cavaliers, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

The second year will be a player option and it's apparent how much Miller values the opportunity to play for a championship with LeBron James in Cleveland -- the Rockets and Nuggets had both offered him significantly more money. Miller was tremendous from downtown last year, making 45.9 percent of his 3-pointers, but he's purely a specialist for fantasy purposes.
Jul 15 - 5:27 PM

The Nuggets have reportedly offered Mike Miller a three-year, $12 million contract, while the Cavaliers have offered a two-year, $5.5 million deal.

The ability to play with LeBron James and compete for a championship will undoubtedly be a strong influence for Miller, but he may find it hard to turn down the Nuggets' lucrative offer at this stage in his career. The 14-year veteran bounced back from a few injury-plagued seasons to appear in all 82 games with Memphis last year, knocking down 45.9 percent of his 3-pointers, and Denver's offer indicates that they're desperate for more perimeter shooting.

Free agent Mike Miller is close to a deal with the Cavs according to Fox Sports Ohio.

"Unless something unforeseeable happens, he will be joining us" said a team source. Miller will probably be on the same program he's been on for the past few years, with playing time concerns during the regular season as he gears up for postseason ball.
Jul 12 - 2:01 AM

Unrestricted free agent Mike Miller is reportedly exploring every option to reunite with LeBron James in Cleveland.

Miller stopped his talks with Denver, and while he'd probably fetch a more lucrative offer elsewhere, playing alongside LeBron for a championship is a pretty good selling point. The Cavs have also reached out to unrestricted free agent Ray Allen as Cleveland looks for shooters to round out their roster.
Jul 11 - 5:19 PM

Brian Windhorst is reporting that LeBron James has spoken to former teammate Mike Miller about joining him in Cleveland.

Miller can still shoot it from downtown and would come with a low price tag, but has been injured for most of his recent career. But if LeBron wants him, Miller will show up.
Jul 11 - 2:10 PM

Mike Miller is in negotiations with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to reports.

According to Grizzlies' sideline reporter Rob Fischer of FOX Sports, the negotiations are "ongoing and positive" and the current offer is higher than the initial offer that was previously reported. Miller has had a growing market for his services that has included the Nuggets, Blazers, Rockets, Thunder, Clippers, and Cavaliers, but he won't have much fantasy value wherever he lands.
Jul 10 - 1:59 PM

Unrestricted free agent Mike Miller is getting close to agreeing to terms with the Nuggets, according to Chris Broussard of

The Cavaliers are believed to be after Miller and his market value seems to be on the rise. Miller had a tough time staying healthy before last season, so it should be interesting to see if the Nuggets are willing to pay more than $4 million to bring him on board. He'll have very little fantasy value.
Jul 9 - 9:06 PM

Mike Miller's market price is "rapidly rising" to around $4-4.5 million per year and he is getting interest from the Grizzlies, Thunder and Nuggets.

The Heat can't bring Miller on their team because they amnestied him in 2013 and rules dictate he can't go back with them until his original contract expires, which is 2015. Miller was able to stay healthy last year and it's certainly going to help him get a deal, but his price tag seems a bit high.
Jul 9 - 4:49 PM

The Cavaliers are reportedly pursuing free agent Mike Miller.

The Cavs are pulling out all the stops in a final effort to convince LeBron James to return to Cleveland -- they've cleared a max-salary slot and are now reportedly chasing both Miller and Ray Allen. The Clippers, Nuggets, Rockets, Thunder and Trail Blazers have also expressed interest in Miller.
Jul 9 - 11:37 AM

Unrestricted free agent Mike Miller is still in Denver and is not expected to be in Memphis until Thursday.

The Nuggets are interested in bringing in Miller, which doesn't make a lot of sense. They brought on Arron Afflalo and drafted Gary Harris, so they really don't need too much help on the wing. The Clippers, Rockets, Thunder and Blazers are also believed to be going after Miller.
Jul 7 - 12:45 PM

Free agent swingman Mike Miller was expected to meet with the Nuggets on Sunday and Monday, according to an ESPN radio station.

The Grizzlies reportedly made Miller an initial two-year contract offer at around "$2.4 and $2.9 million" annually, but the veteran is looking to drive up his asking price before committing to any team. The Clippers, Nuggets, Rockets, Thunder and Trail Blazers have also been linked to Miller, who shot a blistering 45.9 percent from beyond the arc last season.
