Today was the second time the Boston Herald has tossed Mike Miller’s name out there as a potential Celtic.
The Celtics will be equipped on Thursday with their mid-level exception and all of the veteran minimum deals they can throw at people. Expect Mike Miller – the talented wing for the Washington Wizards who once played for Rivers – to be a target.
But big men are the priority here. The question could very well be whether Brad Miller – a likely free agent cut to the wind because of Chicago’s max-contract concerns – feels he deserves an entire mid-level exception to himself.
But the Celtics will have to wait and let the saturated market finally convince a few players they’re not worth as much as they first thought.
I like both Mike and Brad Miller, and they both fit well. But… don’t the Celtics need to get a little more athletic? Don’t they need an infusion of a little youth? Don’t they need to sign free agents who aren’t the two worst players ever to play for Team USA? Don’t they?
P.S. – Brad Miller has a tattoo of the And1 logo. I’d rather have a tattoo of Kobe raising the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Actually, on second thought, give me the And1 guy.
