In the Miami Heat’s preseason opener, it wasn’t a player hoping to make the team that showed out.
Instead, it was one of Miami’s ‘Big Three’ to make the most out of their first NBA action since their Game 7 NBA Finals victory. While Dwyane Wade sat out and LeBron James took it lightly, Chris Bosh went to work with 21 points on 7-of-8 overall shooting, made all six of his free throws and hit his only three-point attempt.
The Miami Heat have been at their busiest of the offseason this past week as they finalize the final training camp roster and make refined changes to the coaching staff.
The dust has settled and Mike Miller is now, once again, a member of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Miller played the best seasons of his career with the Grizzlies, playing with the franchise from 2003 to 2008. He was recently a victim of the amnesty clause by the Miami Heat, in order to clear some cap space and avoid a luxury tax bill that would have cost upwards of $30 million.
He is still owed $13 million by the Heat. However, the Heat are now giving leverage to spend without having to worry too much about their spending limitations. They can still use the mid-level exception and the veterans minimum.
