Cavs officially announce signings of Miller, Jones
CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cavaliers officially announced the signings of Mike Miller and James Jones, two shooters who won NBA titles with LeBron James in Miami.
Miller and Jones agreed to terms with the Cavs shortly after James announced he was returning to Cleveland and signed a two-year, $41 million contract with the club.
A 14-year veteran, Miller has played Orlando, Memphis, Minnesota, Washington and Miami. He’s averaged 11.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists. Miller gives the Cavs a needed outside shooting threat and a player who knows how to get open for James.
Last season, Miller connected on 46 percent (107-233) of his 3-pointers with the Grizzlies.
Jones, too, can shoot. He has made 40 percent of his career 3s and won the league’s 3-point shootout at the 2011 All-Star game.
