Mike Miller will be back in Cleveland next season.

In what isn't a particularly shocking development, Mike Miller will be a Cleveland Cavalier next season.

According to Shams Charania of Real GM, Miller has picked up his player option for next season. Miller's option is worth $2.8 million and fully guaranteed for the 2015-16 season. Miller, 35, signed a two-year deal with the Cavs last summer in large part due to his relationship with LeBron James and experience playing on very good Miami Heat teams.

Miller's first season in Cleveland wasn't particularly productive. Early in the season, Miller suffered a concussion and missed time. He was briefly the Cavs' starting shooting guard and had 21 point performance in December against the Brooklyn Nets. For the season, Miller played in 52 games - 15 of which were starts - and played 13.5 minutes per game. He averaged 2.1 points on 32.5 percent shooting from the field and 32.7 percent shooting on 3-pointers. All were career lows.

Moving forward, Miller's role figures to be nothing more than that of a veteran locker room presence. Free agency fully begins on Wednesday, July 1.
