Today, the Miami Heat have amnestied Mike Miller after three incredible seasons with the franchise. Miller, although plagued by injury over the past few years, was an integral part of the Heat’s back to back Championship success.
GM Pat Riley discussed the incredibly difficult decision stating “After many discussions internally and a sincere effort to explore the trade market, we made a very difficult decision to use our Amnesty provision on Mike Miller. Mike had an incredible impact on the Miami HEAT; helping us to three Finals appearances and winning back-to-back World Championships. This was a very difficult decision for me personally, the Arison family, Erik (Spoelstra) and the entire Miami HEAT organization. Mike was one of the best we have ever had here, and will be sorely missed. We wish Mike, his wife Jennifer and their family nothing but the best.”
All the best Mike your energy off the bench will be missed; let’s it fly!
