Heat waive Mike Miller
The two-time defending NBA champions are using the collective bargaining agreementís one-time amnesty clause to waive Miller and cut his contract from its books, the Miami Herald learned Tuesday morning. The move allows the Heat to avoid about $17 million in luxury tax.
The Heat informed Millerís agent Monday night that the team would be using amnesty, according to a source. Itís hard to believe that a championship team would release a player who shot 61.1 percent from three-point range in the 2013 NBA Finals, but thatís the reality of the NBA under the new collective-bargaining agreement, which seemingly was designed to prevent dynasties and financially level the leagueís playing field.
