Secondly, why would you want to get rid of the only player on the team who gets rid of the ball on time? Lou Williams is not a true pg and it shows during the half-court game. In transition, Williams is great, but when you get to the playoffs half court decisions win games.
I understand about the cap and how appealing it is to bounce Miller, but you need a guy like that to be the coach on the floor. If I were a big time free agent/trade option, I would feel re-assured knowing a pg like Miller was there to get me the ball in the right spots.
I meant package him in a trade in which you might be able to get a first rounder, coupled with the draft pick they already have. If he's packaged with the right players, they might be able to get a lottery-caliber pick, but it'd be late lottery.
