Report: Miller to sign with Grizzlies

(WMC-TV) - After pursuing sharp shooter Mike Miller for several weeks, it looks as though the Grizzlies' efforts have paid off.

ESPN.COM's Marc Stein is reporting Miller has accepted Memphis' offer and will return to the Bluff City this season.

Memphis has battled with Oklahoma City, Denver, and Houston in its pursuit of Miller, after the veteran forward was amnestied by the Heat earlier this month.

In 59 games last season, Miller shot almost 42 percent from three, but also scored a career low 4.8 points per game.

His real worth, though, was in the post season.

The former 5th overall pick played in all seven games in the NBA Finals, starting the last four and shooting 61 percent beyond the arc in helping the Heat win its second straight NBA championship.

Miller, who still has a home in Collierviille, bombed seven 3's in game five to beat the Thunder for the 2012 NBA Crown.  

Miller, who played for the Grizzlies from 2003-through 2008,  earned NBA Sixth Man of the Year Honors as a Grizzly in the '05-'06 season.

He's a career 40 percent 3 point shooter.
