NBA Comparison: Austin Daye

Strengths: An incredibly skilled prospect, Miller has ideal size and a ridiculously lengthy (7'3) wingspan for a scoring small forward ... Displays precise footwork, making every step a purposeful one ... Despite previous ACL surgery, Miller is a mobile athlete that can slip and slide off his defender ... With the ball in his hands, Miller is a crafty shot-creator on the perimeter, doing most of his offensive damage in the midrange ... Uses impressive handle on the ball to create shots off the dribble on the perimeter, showing a high awareness of his defender's positioning and an understanding of how to take advantage of that ... Possesses balance after using effective pivots to get his shot off ... Effectively uses off-ball screens to get open ... As a finisher and scorer down low, Miller's scoring instincts allow him to convert in a number of different ways despite lacking the strength and explosiveness to get easier buckets ... Mentally tough , competitor ...

Weaknesses: Miller looks to have lost some speed and explosiveness after tearing his ACL as a senior in high school, which could make it difficult for him to free himself for open looks and shoot a respectable percentage at the next level ... Not very impressive on the break and in the open floor ... He gets little elevation on his jump shot with a low release, leaving his three-point shots easier to contest ... Over his last 12 games, Miller shot 2 for 18 from downtown, making you question whether his hot shooting start was flukey (finished at 34%) ... Needs to add bulk to his wiry frame ... Not a force on the glass ... Inconsistent from a game to game basis as a freshman ... Only averaged 3 free throw attempts per game ... Appears lackadaisical at times defensively, and could be vulnerable defending stronger, faster players in isolation situations ...

Overall: Miller had a rough end to his freshman year, averaging only 6 points in four NCAA tournament games ... As a prospect, his ceiling remains high due to his pure basketball talent and unique physical attributes for a small forward ... But the gamble for teams will be whether his physical abilities will improve after surgery ... Miller's decision to enter the draft after one year gives the impression he's been told he'd be a first round pick, because returning as a sophomore seemed like the appropriate move ...
