Heat Offer Mike Miller Five-Year Deal

Jeff Goodman of FOX Sports reports that “the Miami Heat have offered Mike Miller 5-year deal worth 27-30 million with deadline tonight.” Goodman is also reporting that the Heat told Miller they’re “confident” LeBron is coming. The pieces are beginning to add up, as several teams were tracking Miller because there is a belief that LeBron James wants to play with him.

    Uhm……paging Mr. Riley, you better get Beas traded then, ’cause this sh*t ain’t happening without that piece of business being complete.

    Send Beas to Toronto!

    If Mike Miller lands in Miami… 6th Man of the Year?

  • WangChung

    Dear Mike Miller,

    Sign the dotted line if you want a fistful of rings.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    And to be clear, unlike 70% of the Heat fans I know, I’ll miss Beas a ton and hope he does exceptionally well in his new home. If it winds up being in Toronto, Holly Mac is going to have quotes for days.

    I like the informal statistical poll, Eboy.

    i think we’re giving up on Beasley way too early but a change of scenery might do him well. I hope he blows ish up in Toronto if they make that happen

    Damn you Riley! Miller was our “missing out on Lebron, Wade and Bosh” consolation prize. Who would have known you’d take all 4 of them?!?

  • Diesel

    5 Years $30 mil…so $6 mill a year. That’s more than beasly is currently making. I call BS on this report on account of a small thing called the salary cap.

  • The D Train

    And I should note that IF Riley makes all 4 of those moves happen, just give him the damned GM Of The Century trophy right now.

    Reports are saying Toronto doesn’t want Beasley… fcuk.

  • kev

    I wouldn’t want Beasley either, he just isn’t very good. He shows some flashes but thats it. He had a perfect situation being 2nd banana to Wade and couldn’t do much with it.

  • Navid

    Wouldn’t want Beasley either. As for Miller being 6th man, no way… he would start on the team, even with Lebron joining. Since the newest “big 3″ would have no problem with either Bron or Wade bringing up the ball I don’t see any problem with Wade/James at the point, and Miller at the SG or SF slot because he’s 6’9. James and Wade are also multi-faceted in that Wade can play 1-3 spots and James 1-4. That leaves Bosh at the PF-C slot. He’s too tiny to be a centre in my opinion, so they’ll have to address that. But with such a talented squad, they would be the team that gets away with it (LeBron pending)

  • Drew

    Wait, if they signed Mike Miller for that much do they still have money for LeBron? I thought everyone was saying if the Heat sign the “Big 3″ they’ll only have enough money left to round out the roster with 9 MINIMUM guys. If Mike is signed for that much, there’s no money left for LeBron. I guess he must be going to New York then?

    @ niQ: How could they? He’s athletic, can rebound, shoot, and he’s from America. Doesn’t fit the bill.

  • WangChung

    @Teddy-the-bear: He plays no D. He’ll fit right in.

    this means b-easy is gone… imma miss him hope he does well wherever he plays and im gunna miss his eccentric plays

  • http://www.clownpenis.com Tarzan Cooper

    Its hard to be 19 and 20 fresh in the league, on a team where youre automatically second best, coach is fn u around on mins, they expect you to score alot, but still play team ball, and they expect you to play d like kg right away. And u were high half the time. Beas couldnt win in mia, too much crap piled on him immediately

  • http://aspov.blogspot.com Cheryl

    Beas’d be great in Sacramento. I won’t miss him at all, E, you’re right. You know my take on him.

  • rav

    how on earth will they get these guys under the cap – are bron/wade/bosh taking a huge paycut like?

  • http://sportschump.net Chris Humpherys

    Yea… that doesn’t make any sense.

    They won’t be able to afford all four of those guys and then fill out the rest of their roster.

  • http://twitter.com/HarryByrdMan44 LA Huey

    The math doesn’t work…Unless, LBJ and Wade sign for the minimum (since they can’t make it up in endorsements), Bosh takes the max, and the rest of the money goes to role players. If that’s the case, I hope I never come down from whatever I’m on.

  • c_cantrell

    dont see how they will have the cap space to sign miller if lebron signs.. which im sure is the only reason he seems to be waiting til tonight to see if lebron comes or not

  • http://yahoo Ddub

    This Just In!! Miami has signed GOD for the vet. Min!
    The Devil is Next! Oh! Wait? they have him? Its Pat Riley,Who takes all the credit, and coaches only when he will look good!Oh, yeah, if it goes bad, he will run and someone else will take the fall,we have seen it before,,yawn??

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    tarzan – i kind of expect either of the top 2 picks taken in any year to be pretty much ready to perform at an allstar level…. if they can’t why are they going so high…

  • Phenom

    Sign and trade Miller for Beasley!! Wizards gave up that Steph Curry pick to get Miller/Foye so they at least walk away with something.

  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

    After LeBron was signed they offered Mike Miller a 6 year $8 contract…

  • rainman10

    next they are going to get Michael Finley and Theo Ratliff to just play for free whenever they can. No contract.
