Market price for free agent Mike Miller is rapidly rising, sources tell Yahoo. Memphis. OKC. Denver. Yes, Cleveland. $4-4.5M per year.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 9, 2014
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.
