Kendallville native Brad Miller may not be entirely done with the NBA. Miller's agent Mark Bartelstein said yesterday it isn't a certainty his client will retire even though he had announced it earlier during the season.
On Saturday, the Timberwolves reached an agreement with Miller to extend the deadline to pick up his option for next season. Miller is due to make $5.1 million in 2012-13, but his contract could be bought out for less than $1 million. This makes him an enticing pawn in trade talks, as teams looking to shed salary cap space would be able to do so by acquiring Miller.
The Timberwolves have made no secret of their desire to trade for Lakers center Pau Gasol. A player with the contract flexibility of Miller could be worked into such a trade.
With that said, there is no guarantee that Miller does in fact return for a 15th NBA season, but based on information gathered, the notion that he is completely retired isn't entirely the case either.
