There's a chance Blazers GM Joe Cronin deals this selection - even one this high - for an established star to put next to Damian Lillard to help Portland make a title run right now. If he keeps it, it could mean Lillard is gone and this is the first pick in the start of a long-term rebuild.
Miller would slot in perfectly as a 6-9 wing alongside Anfernee Simons and Shaedon Sharpe, creating a core three that would mesh together well to help Portland move into the future. Miller is already a good shooter from deep, having shot a high percentage on a high volume at Alabama, and shows the potential to become a scorer from all three levels.
He's also an underrated passer who would be an excellent secondary playmaker next to Simons and Sharpe, who both prefer to create their own shots, and his length and defensive upside would fill a need for Portland moving forward. — Andrew Hanlon, Rip City Project
