Brad Miller

Bradley Alan Miller (born April 12, 1976) is an American former professional basketball player. After college, because of the NBA lockout, Miller started his career in the Italian Serie A with Bini Viaggi Livorno for three months. He was then signed by the Charlotte Hornets as an undrafted free agent. He played for the Hornets for two seasons. On March 24, 1999, he had his season high 25 points, going 9–9 shooting and 7–7 from the line. The two-time NBA All-Star played for six NBA teams.

During the 2011 NBA Draft, Miller was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Donatas Motiejunas and Jonny Flynn. Due to microfracture knee surgery on his left knee while a member of the Rockets in May 2011, he was doubtful to begin playing for the Wolves at the projected start of the 2011-12 season (which was delayed due to the owners’ lockout) – or indeed at all.

On January 12, 2012, Miller practiced with the team for the first time, strictly in half-court situations to protect his knee.[6] He made his debut with the team on January 29, 2012. In an interview with Yahoo Sports, he announced that the 2011-2012 season would be his final season.

After the season, however, Miller’s agent said that Miller was undecided about retiring.

On July 13, 2012, Miller was traded to the New Orleans Hornets, then traded to the Phoenix Suns as part of a three-team deal on July 27, 2012. He was waived by the Suns on August 15, 2012, when the team signed Jermaine O’Neal. Miller later reaffirmed his decision to retire.
