LeBron James 'badly' wants Mike Miller to sign with Cavaliers


The Cleveland Cavaliers are trying their best to get as good as possible now that LeBron James is back in town and this means going out and getting as many valuable pieces to place around him as possible.

One valuable piece is swingman Mike Miller, who has a history of winning with LeBron and is a guy he wants to play alongside again.  According to NBA scribe Chuck Myron LeBron James not only wants Mike Miller on the Cavaliers, he “badly wants” the former Memphis Grizzlies’ free agent swingman Mike Miller in Cleveland.

Ray Allen sure is, and a number of other veterans, including Mike Miller, whom LeBron badly wants. I’m not sure if there will be as many guys lining up to join him as there were when he was with the Heat, however. The Cavs are not as close to the title as the Heat have been the past four years, and Miami is always a more naturally attractive destination than Cleveland.

This is big for the Cavs and they can instantly start making LeBron happy by giving him what he wants right off the bat. It’s not like he asking for anything crazy, rather he simply wants to add a piece that will help the team win — and there’s nothing wrong with that.
