The Cavaliers are considering making a amnesty waiver claim on Miami Heat guard Mike Miller, as reported by Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski earlier this evening. Miller, 33, was an integral playoff cog on Miami’s championship runs in the past two seasons. Despite that occasional postseason success, various injuries have limited the former Rookie of the Year to just an average of 46 regular season games and 830 minutes per year since signing with the team for five years for the full mid-level exception in summer 2010. Including playoffs, Miller has averaged just 4.9 points on 55.4% efficiency field goal shooting in 16.8 minutes per contest with Miami. Cleveland is considering the move after making several other notable free agent signings already this offseason. Wojnarowski pointed out how Miller is close friends with Heat superstar LeBron James, with rampant rumors continuing to circulate about the Cavs’ courting of the four-time MVP next summer. Wojnarowski later added that the Cavs are among several teams possibly considering the move, which might be contingent on Miller’s injury status. He is reportedly considering back fusion surgery, with many teams potentially more interested in waiting out Miller’s waiver deadline of 5 p.m. Thursday to do more research and sign him as a free agent. Moments after the Cavs interest in Miller hit Twitter, it was reported that Thursday’s previously scheduled press conference introducing Andrew Bynum has been delayed. Per Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer, a source said there are no current problems but that arrangements could not be made in time. It’s possible that this delay is in reference to potential additional Cavs’ free agent feelers, as their available cap space is quickly dwindling. Thus, additional paperwork maneuvering might be necessary. [Related: The Diff: Fun Cleveland Cavs facts fans keep forgetting]
