Mike Miller

Look, if you made a Topic about this, I'm sorry...I didn't see anything so I apologize for reposting the same info, if not..
It's been reported the Lakers have offered Mike Miller 30 Million for 5 Years.
Whoa. I didn't expect that kind of deal, 5 Years? He's already 30...& I didn't expect it from the Lakers.
Just putting it out there

He'd be a good fit in the triangle, but what's up with that deal? Why are teams throwing money out like this? Andthe duration of the deals are even worse.

@Iggy

I agree completely..
He's expecting more then the MLE or he's "demanding" which is why the Warriors don't have them in their plans anymore, but the length is crazy...

i disagree, mike miller for 6

i disagree, mike miller for 6 mill a year is not bad. He can play both wing positions and is a perfect fit for the trianlge. Shot 50% from the floor and 48% from 3 last season. I hope this happens. Very underarated player.

MIke Miller

Mike Miller was perfect for the triangle once upon a time.... ever since he was traded to the Wolves he's afraid to shoot now, and if a shooter don't shoot he ain't worth %$&#. Seriously, look at his numbers. He's a bad contract looking to be signed.

I dunno, I thought they'd look for someone younger.

Miller is a good fit because LA did not have a solid 3 point threat last season.

???

I don't understand this deal on some many levels...where do the Lakers win? That's a whole lot of money and years to sign on a mediocre talent.

I thought they would go for someone younger as well too. MAYBE he gets inspired while in LA and lives up to his reputation as a great shooter, if not then to the TRADE LINES he goes!!

whats with the all the hate

whats with the all the hate on his shooting. 48% fiorm 3 and hitting more then 1 a game is bad? Hes gonna get great looks with the lakers. He also got 11ppg 6reb and 4apg How did his shooting go away?

Mike Miller

The question isn't if he can shoot the ball, it's if he will shoot the ball. The percentages are good... it's the attempts that are the problem. 10.9 pts. per game in a contract year isn't great and there has been a lot of garbage time the past couple years (9.9 pts.per game withe Wolves} playing for the Wolves and Wizards.

Yeah Miller has underachieved

Yeah Miller has underachieved the past 2 years. He plays timid now-a-days, even though he is scoring efficiently. Maybe he plays at a higher confidence level again with the Lakers though. I wouldn't doubt that he can play very well in limited minutes. Miller is a very talented player.

It's not bad but it's not worth 5 yrs30 mil. either. Miller went from 18 pts. 4 seasons ago to 10.9 in a contract year on a team that needed his scoring.

hes not gonna need to create

hes not gonna need to create his own shot like minnesota and washington needed him to do if he comes ot the lakers. All he has to do is spread the court and there is no reason to believe he cant do that coming off the bench behind kobe and ron. I dont think 6 mill per is overpaying, thats sorta what i expected him to get on the market.

Is it talent if he doesn't use it? Personally I like Mike Miller.... he grew up in SoDak near where my wife was raised.
As a player he's just hesitant to shoot since he left Memphis.

Mike Miller has never been able to create his own shot. Spot up.... drive the lane when they don't expect him to.

is it talent if he doesnt use it? You all are acting like 11ppg 6rpg and 4apg with elite shooting numbers is garbage. Like i said, if he comes to the lakers it will be the easist job in the world for him. SHoot 3's and spread the floor. He's no longer had the aggression to take guys off the dribble and be a go to player, but he is still a very solid role player and any contender in the league could use him off their bench. Hope this happens, i have always liked miller

1vnorsemen, not true. Memphis

1vnorsemen, not true. Memphis and orlando he created often. Memphis used him at pg for stretches. He often had the ball in his hands and created off the dribble.

Top 5 underrated players In the NBA...when he had the reigns he was a 20 point scorer and leader...he had no talent around the last few years...I love Mike Miller so much ...I made Him one of the stars of "The Free Agent's" Watchmen parody I posted last night...

The numbers you are talking about are not garbage but they were done with garbage teams at garbage time.
With the Wolves he never came up big.... he just kept passing the ball when they begged him to shoot.
Maybe it wasn't his role but he never created anything once he got to the Wolves.

agree, miller as a creator

agree, miller as a creator and go to player has not been the same over the last few years. Buts it not like he was bad. He had little help around him and he has an unselfish mentality which is why he still got 4 assists and passed the ball around despite being in a contract year on a bad team. GM's recognize what they see when a guy is out there and forcing his own shot to get paid. Miller would be a great fit with thelakers.

Even if not the lakers, i created a thread a couple days ago called my 5 most overlooked free agents and mike miller was number 2. I guess i think higher of him then others.

Last year, sasha vujacic, luke walton and adam morrison were filling the role that would be expected of mike mller. And those 3 combined to make about 17 million dollars last year. I think millers a pretty decent step up in my book, epsecially if they cant resign shanon brown.

If they can get him to shoot he'll do well.... but they are giving him a lot of years on that contract. Multiply his pay with a luxury tax and that's a Rudy Gay sized contract the Lakers are offering.

Yes, you can use the MLE back

Yes, you can use the MLE back to back seasons.

I mean, why not go after Ray Allen if you want a shooter for MLE? Is Miller really that good of a ball handler/ Triangle piece over Allen? This isin't a sarcasic remark, This is a real question LA fans.

miller will be for 6 mill a

miller will be for 6 mill a year, but morrison comes off the books at about 5 mill a year this summer and walton and vujacic come off the books for about 12 mill next summer. Miller basically saves them money. And the lakers are always over the cap. In that case you can just mulitply anybody on hte roster's salary by 2 cause they are never under the cap when they sign anyabody.

knicksboy...

I PROMISE I just asked myself the same question. Then I began to think of the loyalty factor and switching sides. But they might as well should have offered Allen when you really think of it.

You multiply any player/salary added over the luxury by 2.... not to be a &$#%#&@!, but I get the gist.

That elbow he absorbed might explain few things about MIller not wanting to create.

yeah, i might look to pull up

yeah, i might look to pull up a little earlier too after that. Dirty play by kobe, but i think he realized it right away and the league suspended him for it.

If you stick up for yourself, no has to do it for you. I went to "old school"... it's the only school I ever enjoyed.

Raja Bell would be a better

Raja Bell would be a better fit than Miller if they are just looking for a back up shooting guard, Bell can also play with Kobe if Kobe moves to the point

Steve Blake (would be a great fit) - D Fish
Kobe - Bell
Artest - Ebanks
Gasol - Odom
Bynum - Characther???
