It is no secret that the Cleveland Cavaliers would love to add free agent Mike Miller. He'd be a solid addition and a good fit in David Blatt's offense. He happens to be good friends with LeBron James. Unfortunately, the Cavs are not the only team that would like to add Miller's services.
According to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, Miller is "legitimately torn" between the Cavs and the Denver Nuggets at the moment.

Late last night, ESPN's Jeff Goodman said that the Cavs may have a slight edge over the Nuggets.

Denver is able to offer more money, while the Cavs probably offer the best chance for Miller to be on a team making deep playoff runs once again.
So, the question is: Will Miller be willing to play at a slight discount to team up with LeBron?
Around NBA, common question: Will players take less money to join LeBron James in Cleveland? They did in Miami. Miller's a good test case.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 15, 2014
Hopefully the answer to that question turns is a resounding yes.
If the Cavs are able to add Miller, he should really add some nice depth off of the bench. He shot 46% on threes last season, and he can play multiple positions. He also has plenty of playoff experience, which would be a nice thing to add to a young team.
