The Golden State Warriors might not be done adding to their roster. After signing free agents Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas and Marreese Speights to bolster their bench, they now have reported interest in Mike Miller, who was recently waived by the Miami Heat.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports has the news:
Possible suitors for Miller include Spurs, Thunder, Rockets and Warriors.

In a follow up to his tweet, Wojnarowski lists the Oklahoma City Thunder as the frontrunners for Miller, which would appear to be a good fit after they lost Kevin Martin to the Minnesota Timberwolves. That’s not to say that Miller will entirely replace Martin’s production, but it’s something to note.
Along with the Warriors and Thunder, the Memphis Grizzlies also have “strong” interest, according to Wojnarowski.
The Warriors’ interest in Miller is a bit surprising. They have plenty of guards/small forwards–Harrison Barnes, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson. The addition of Iguodala pushes either Thompson or Barnes to the bench.
So, Miller’s role would likely be nothing more than a player who can come in for short periods and provide scoring bursts with his three-point shooting–in the finals, he shot 61.0 percent from three-point range, and he’s a career 40.6 percent shooter from beyond the arc.
