Nothing against Mike Miller as a person or player, but his time in Miami has been an utter failure. His lone season was plagued with injuries and he wasn't very effective while on the floor.
Miller is just coming off surgery and is expected to miss at least a month, but it seems as if he is becoming a liability overall.
In 41 games last season, Miller shot a brutal 41 percent from the field and shot sub-par from downtown. While he remains a solid rebounder and role player, he has a contract that he has not fulfilled thus far and shows no signs of doing so.
Cutting Miller would open up more room for Miami to add another possible helper in the paint (besides the whopping Eddy Curry signing), which the Heat also lacked last year.
Don't get me wrong, Miller can still have plenty of good seasons left in him, but it doesn't look like it will be with Miami. Using the granted amnesty clause on the former Rookie of the Year seems like the best move at this point.
Look for Battier to fill the role that Miller was brought in for, but possibly with more effect.
