I think this is a guy that we are overlooking - myself included. I feel like he is just a great fit for this scheme - real good defender, rebounder, and shooter. He can't create for himself, but that's okay because we have Gordon, Rivers, and Vasquez to create shots from him, and all he needs to do is hit open jumpers. Also, he has a very high basketball I.Q. (sorry Eman, I know you hate the term).
http://www.nbadraftblog.com/2012-art...us-miller.htmlPerimeter Shooting - Miller has the makings of a good perimeter shooter. He has good form, a high, quick release and decent range.
Rebounding/Passing - Miller has the ability and athleticism to be a factor on the offensive glass, but his offensive role left him out of position to do so. Miller has good understanding of court spacing, and sees the court very well. His size lets him see over the top from the perimeter and he has the passing touch to hit backdoors and cuts on the weakside. He takes very little risk with his passes and does a good job getting the ball to teammates where they can make a play.
Perimeter Defense - Miller is an above-average perimeter defender. He isnít very quick, but he positions himself well, has decent lateral movement and sees the whole court. On the ball, he stays active, doesnít get over-aggressive and knows how to force his man into help defenders
Rebounding - Miller has the body and skill to be a good rebounder, but he did not get much of an opportunity to show it this season. He uses his body well to box out and goes strong after the ball to secure the miss.
A lot of people have been saying that he is a very underrated rebounder - mostly because Davis, MKG, and T. Jones were cleaning up the boards last year, so he didn't even get the opportunity to contribute in that area. At 6'8, 230, I think he can be a significant factor for us on the boards.
A great comparison for him, IMO, is Kawhi Leonard. I've seen it a few times, and I think it just fits. If he can give us what Leonard gives the Spurs, we will be set.
http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...s-and-anaylsisThink Kawhi Leonard with a little bit more athleticism, though Leonard can certainly run with anyone when he wants to. Miller should be able to stretch the floor from three-point land when he is on the court, just like Leonard in San Antonio. Look for Miller to immediately make an impact on the defensive end and in transition.
Scouts see him as the prototypical NBA small forward in today's game, with the ability to knock down threes while playing solid defense on one of the league's hardest positions to defend.
