Report: Mike Miller could join Penny Hardaway’s staff at Memphis
Penny Hardaway could be adding a familiar face to his staff at Memphis.
Mark Giannotto of the Commercial Appeal reported on Tuesday that two-time NBA champion Mike Miller could join Hardaway as an assistant for the Tigers. Miller and Hardaway first met to discuss the possibility of joining forces last month and then did so again earlier this week.
Giannotto adds that Miller is also fielding interest from Louisville, Florida (his alma mater), and TCU (where his older brother Ryan is an assistant).
The 38-year-old Miller, a 17-year NBA veteran, last played for the Denver Nuggets in the 2016-17 season. He also had two separate stints with the Memphis Grizzlies from 2003 to 2008 and from 2013 to 2014.
Hardaway already struck out on one opportunity to add a seasoned NBA mind to his staff, but the former Sixth Man of the Year Miller could make for just as strong of a hire.
