Report: Knicks meeting with Mike Miller tonight (UPDATE: Miami later)

New, comments

So, you're the Knicks.  You have all this cap room.  Who do you meet with first?

If you said Mike Miller, you win, at least if Marc Berman of the New York Post is to be believed.

At 9 p.m. Pacific time, they were planning to meet with Washington's 6-8 small forward Mike Miller before sitting down with Atlanta's Joe Johnson, according to a source.

If the Knicks have no luck with the elite five free agents, including LeBron James, Miller is a very serious option because his perimeter shooting is perfect for Mike D'Antoni's offense.

Wizards GM Ernie Grunfeld wants to keep Miller but the Knicks could be in the position to overpay if desperate. Miller averaged 10.9 points but shot 50 percent from the field and 48 percent on 3-pointers.

He's all yours, Knicks, especially if you overpay.  

(Also, as expected, the Wizards won't pick up Josh Howard's option, making him an unrestricted free agent). 

UPDATE: Miller is also meeting with the Heat eventually, according to Michael Lee.

UPDATE: Via Adrian Wojnarowski.

Mike Miller is turning into hot property, league executives say. He can expect offers starting north of mid-level exception in 1st year.    

If true, I think we can safely kiss him goodbye and not feel bad about it.
