Free agent swingman Mike Miller is being pursued by the Memphis Grizzlies, Oklahoma City Thunder, Denver Nuggets and Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

That's quite a price tag for Miller, considering it looked risky when the Grizzlies signed him to a one-year deal after the Heat amnestied him last summer. Miller had battled numerous injuries in Miami, but upped his value by suiting up for every single game in Memphis this past season. He deserves credit for that.

Miller made 46 percent of his three-pointers with the Grizzlies, and that's the main reason he's so sought-after. His rebounding and assist rates decreased in Memphis, and at 34 years old he's not as versatile as he used to be. Still, that shooting is extremely attractive to teams trying to win now. Remember, Jodie Meeks agreed to a deal worth more than $6 million per season.

LeBron James reportedly reached out to Miller last week -- if the superstar leaves the Heat, he'd be interested in the sharpshooter joining him, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
