The oft-injured Miller cleared amnesty waivers today, though the Cleveland Cavaliers had debated placing a bid on him. Miller, an excellent shooter and rebounder for his position, would help fill the hole behind Kawhi Leonard at small forward, and would be the Spurs 15th and final roster spot. But that battle is already full of potential candidates like Gary Neal, Greg Oden, Deshaun Thomas and Marcus Denmon.
Miller, who is 33, has only played a full season once (his rookie year) and has been mired with injuries the past couple years, but has still been a vital piece to the Miami’s bench unit in their three straight NBA Finals appearances.
