Mike Miller contract offer from Cavs much less than Nuggets
According to ESPN reporter Jeff Goodman, Miller’s offer from the Cavaliers is two years and about $5.5 million. His offer from Denver reportedly is three years and $12 million.
Earlier in the week week, Chris Broussard reported that Miller was closing in on a deal with the Nuggets. Knowing that Miller was exploring other options, the Memphis Grizzlies decided to sign Vince Carter.
Now it’s up to Miller to decide what to do.
The report about Miller closing on a deal with Denver came out before LeBron James announced he was going to Cleveland. However, other reports indicated that LeBron reached out to Miller and Ray Allen to gauge their interest in joining him on the Cavs if he chose to sign with his old team, so that would mean he was talking with Denver despite knowing LeBron was going to Cleveland.
Miller’s Instagram post during the week seemed to indicate he was interested in teaming with LeBron in Cleveland. If that’s the case, he’ll have to take a pay cut or tell Cleveland to increase their offer.
