I don't know how much stock to put in this, but word out of Dallas is that Reggie Miller may be considering joining the Mavs. From the Dallas Morning News:
No way of knowing how serious it is yet, but Reggie Miller could be a candidate for the Mavericks' vacant roster spot.First of all, this move makes no sense for the Mavericks. They've won 13 in a row and are a league best 48-9. They've got a good team down there led by a good coach. You don't want to go messing around with that.
Owner Mark Cuban brought up Miller's name before Monday's game against the Hawks. The former Indiana Pacers star is the No. 1 3-point shooter in NBA history. He retired after the 2004-05 season, but remains in excellent physical shape.
And joining the Mavericks would give him the chance to do about the only thing he never did in his illustrious career – win a championship.
Avery Johnson said he and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson have been discussing options for the open spot, but are not close to any decisions.
Miller currently is a member of TNT's broadcast team.
But what I really don't like about this idea is that Reggie Miller would be playing for a team that is not the Indiana Pacers. I prefer the Reggie Miller of my youth - the one who scored 25 points in the 4th quarter against the Knicks in the 1994 Playoffs, the one who scored 9 points in 8.9 seconds against the Knicks the next year, the one who could always be counted on to sink the big shot when it was needed. Until his retirement, Reggie spent my entire life playing for the Pacers. It would really sadden me to see an aging Reggie out trying to hoof it up and down the court, being a step or two too slow. It'd sadden me even more if that happened in a Mavs jersey.
