Drafted to the New Orleans Pelicans in 2012 after just winning a National Title in the same city of New Orleans. Drafted to the same team as Anthony Davis his former teammate. Miller, a homegrown Kentucky hero began his NBA career.
Miller was selected with the 46th overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft by the New Orleans Hornets then. In August 2012, he signed a multi-year deal with the Hornets. Soon after in December he was assigned to the D-League. On January 27, he was recalled back, However in November 2014, he was waived by the Pelicans.
February 2015, Miller signed with Brose Bamberg of Germany for the rest of the 2014–15 season. In July 2015, he re-signed with Brose Baskets for one more season. With his Germany team he has since claimed three straight Championships.
According to David Pick, a Pro basketball reporter, Miller has rejoined the New Orleans Pelicans:
The Pelicans made the right move. The Maysville native won Kentucky’s Sweet 16 with Mason Country in high school, the National championship with Kentucky’s 2012 Men’s Basketball team and three straight titles with Brose Bamberg in Germany. Miller won two SEC regular-season titles and two SEC Tournament crowns with the Wildcats in his 4 years also.
Sounds like Miller knows exactly how to win, right? Now joining former Wildcats Demarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis back in the city where he won a National Title? That can’t hurt either.
Way to go Miller, #BBN couldn’t be more proud.
Miller also got some Congrats from another former Cat:
We too hope he tears it up Jorts.
