CLEVELAND (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says free agent Mike Miller has agreed to a 2-year, $5.5 million contract with the Cavaliers, re-uniting him with superstar LeBron James.
Miller reached the agreement with the Cavs on Tuesday, according to the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not commented on the deal. Miller’s contract includes a player option in the second year.
He’ll make $2.7 million next season, and the option is worth $2.8 million.
Miller was teammates for three seasons with James in Miami. Last season, Miller played in 82 games for Memphis. He shot 46 percent (107 of 233) on 3-pointers.
The 34-year-old gives the Cavs another outside weapon and a piece to help James, who signed a two-year, $42 million contract on Saturday.
Luol Deng signs 2-year deal with Heat
MIAMI (AP) — Luol Deng has signed a $20 million, two-year contract with the Miami Heat.
He agreed to the deal over the weekend. The contract signed Tuesday includes a player option for 2015-16.
Deng is entering his 11th NBA season, after spending almost his entire career with the Chicago Bulls. He appeared in 40 games with the Cleveland Cavaliers following a trade last season. In Miami, he figures to compete for the starting spot vacated last week when LeBron James left the Heat for a return to the Cavaliers.
Deng has averaged 16.0 points in his career. He was picked No. 7 overall from Duke in the 2004 draft.
