Mike Miller agrees to play for Memphis Grizzlies

Memphis needs outside shooting to space the floor, it was painfully obvious during the playoffs (and spare me your Rudy Gay stuff, go look at his jump shooting numbers then move on).

Mike Miller was good enough to space the floor for the Miami Heat the last couple years and picked up a couple rings doing so, but they had to cut him loose to save a few bucks.

So match made in heaven? Well, they are at least going to try it out according to Marc Stein.
Both Oklahoma City and Memphis went hard at Miller — Kevin Durant and Marc Gasol led the recruiting charges.

This wasn’t about money — he will sign for the minimum because Miami still has to pay him the rest of his $6.2 million this season. This was about where Miller felt comfortable and wanted to play.

The questions are health and how much Miller can give the Grizzlies during the season? He played in 59 games for Miami and averaged just 4.2 points a game in the regular season last year. Those 59 games were the most he’s played in the regular season in four years — he has back issues and plenty of other nagging injuries.

But when he plays he plays pretty well — he shot 41.7 percent from three last season. Notice Miami had him on the court in all seven NBA Finals games for at least 15 minutes, and had some key moments in the Heat’s Game 6 win (he played almost 30 minutes that night). Or, remember Game 5 of the 2012 Finals against the Thunder.

This is a good pickup for Memphis. If he’ll be healthy enough to really help the Grizzlies remains to be seen, but that this price it’s a fantastic gamble.

Good move for Mike and for the Grizz. He has a chance for a lot of playing time and can really help their bigs out

He played there before and liked it. Not surprised.

Good move for him. Glad he's at least not on the Heat or OKC.

Memphis needs a outside shooter and Miller is excellent on that area.

On the other hand they walready have to ship Prince and put Pondexter into line-up. Otherwise, the teams won't be anxious about Memphis shooters unilt Miller or Pondexter steps into to the court.
