Miller has a $2.8 million player option for the 2015-16 season. As of now he says his intentions are to pick up that option and become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2016. "I would say yes. I am coming back, but it's a long year," Miller said. "I'm going to see how this one goes. All I'm focused on is what we do here. We've got 25 games here and then a playoff run. We'll see how that goes. Where I'm at now, I've been blessed to do 15 years. It's a year-by-year basis. I love what I'm doing." Cleveland Plain Dealer

His role on the court with the Cleveland Cavaliers may have been reduced significantly, but Mike Miller believes he still has a place on this team and in this league. "I think I can play as long as they need me to be, to be honest with you," Miller said. "It's a matter of what I want to do with my kids and how I approach it." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Earlier this week, the Wolves produced a tongue-in-cheek video trumpeting the return of Cavaliers guard Mike Miller, a parody that Love called "hilarious." But coach and president Flip Saunders clearly wasn't pleased with it. "I think as an organization we should be above that," said Saunders, who did not see the video before it was played on Wednesday night. "We have to acknowledge that Kevin, when he was here, he was a great player for us. He was an All-Star. He won an Olympic gold medal, did a lot of positive things. ... To not acknowledge that, to go the other way, I would say would be hypocritical." USA Today Sports

Apart from James' face-to-face meeting with Allen, several other members of the Cavs have kept in contact with the shooting guard this season -- James Jones and Mike Miller, who were also Allen's teammates in Miami, as well as associate head coach Tyronn Lue, who was an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics when Allen played there.

James sounds as though he could return even sooner than the Jan. 15 target date the Cavaliers set for him on New Year's Day. "LeBron's more committed than I've ever seen him. That's all I need to know," said Mike Miller, who played with James for three seasons in Miami and signed as a free agent to rejoin him in Cleveland. Cleveland Plain Dealer

On Sunday, the Cavs had fans at the Quicken Loans Arena vote for their favorite Miller hairstyle. Mullet Mike was getting no respect as the first few votes rolled in, which I personally think is an atrocity. Larry Brown Sports

Mike Miller was held out of Saturday's Cavaliers practice with a sprained right ankle he sustained in Friday's win over the Brooklyn Nets. Miller played on the ankle after rolling it, so it isn't being viewed as a significant injury. The sharpshooter was 7-of-8 from 3-point range in his first start and first game back from a concussion.

Mike Miller made his coach look like a genius Friday night. Miller, showing little rust from missing seven games with a concussion, scored 21 points on seven 3-pointers in his first start of the season, and the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 95-91. Cavaliers coach David Blatt's decision to start Miller, who missed one 3-pointer in eight attempts and played 33 minutes, paid off in a major way. "When the fire is hot, you want to let it burn," Blatt said. "It was burning tonight." ESPN.com

When he was recovering from his concussion, he would put in extra hours of conditioning and shooting. He didn't want to just get back on the court. He wanted to be a force. It's another reason why his teammates adore him. "What makes me feel good is seeing my teammates succeed," James said of Miller. Cleveland Plain Dealer
