He is the only undrafted player to lead a franchise in career rebounds and is fourth in rebounding among all undrafted players, behind Moses Malone, Ben Wallace and Brad Miller. "There's no hiding it. Everybody knows he's my favorite player and his story is one of the most special stories," Spoelstra said. "It's somebody who came from our own backyard in the toughest of communities in Miami. To not only make it out but then to be an absolute example for young kids to aspire to and to be the core value face of our franchise, it's pretty amazing." USA Today

We also talked with Johnson about Miller’s passion for the great outdoors. Johnson has yet to go on a hunting trip with Miller, but is kept up to date on all of Miller’s exploits. “I heard he just got a 7-foot bear just the other day. So, I don’t know if I’m going that extreme. I don’t if I’m that extreme yet – maybe a couple ducks or squirrels (first).” Turns out Johnson wasn’t kidding. Just about a week ago, Miller tweeted that he was hunting black bear and blacktail deer in Northern California. He also shared the following picture. Cowbell Kingdom

The former All-Star center who was traded twice after he announced his retirement last spring is back at Timberwolves training camp, invited by the coach he played for on three different teams. Rick Adelman invited Miller to Mankato for a few days because he thinks his big guys will benefit from the wisdom Miller accumulated running Adelman's famed "corner" offense in Sacramento, Houston and Minnesota. Miller, 36, accepted the offer thinking it will help him decide whether he wants to pursue a coaching career rather than just retire to his homes in Sacramento and Indiana, and because there's good deer hunting in southern Minnesota this time of year.

Adelman said he isn't sure if Miller will return in a recurring coaching role after the team returns home to Minneapolis from Mankato on Friday. "I don't know, I don't know where the deer are so I'm not sure when he's leaving," Adelman said. "He's such a smart player. With the group we have, a lot of stuff we're doing is what we did in the past and he's really smart about that. I thought he could help the big guys and make them understand what they have to look for." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Retired Brad Miller was at Wednesday's second day of training camp, working with the big men on the finer points of Adelman's offense at the coach's request. Miller, who spent last season with the Wolves, considers a few days spent in Mankato a chance to see if he wants to pursue coaching. He also plans, of course, to do some hunting in the mornings. "I think he got lost," Adelman said. "Actually, he got more done today in camp that he did all last year. I just think it's good. He was such a smart player." Minneapolis Star-Tribune

The person told The Associated Press about the trade on condition of anonymity Wednesday because it has not been announced pending the completion of some routine logistical matters. The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and retiring center Brad Miller's $5.1 million contract from New Orleans to Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves to clear space under the NBA's salary cap as they pursue free agents. Minnesota also will receive two second-round draft picks from New Orleans, while the Hornets will receive cash. Oklahoman
