Mike Miller's return to Memphis Grizzlies next season contingent on a fair negotiation

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

MM13 hit the airways today and let it be known he'd like to return to the Memphis Grizzlies next season.

And there was much rejoicing! If the offseason of the Memphis Grizzlies is a cake to be baked, they might have just preheated the oven to 350 degrees.

Miller discovered a fountain of youth in Memphis for the 2013-14 season, as evident by him being the only Grizzly to claim playing time in every single game this past season. Also encouraging for Grizzlies fans is the fact that Miller shot his 3rd highest three-point percentage in his career with 45.9% from beyond the arc.

Even with Miller probably returning I imagine the Griz FO will look to add to their perimeter shooting with roster construction this summer. While Mike shot a great percentage, he finished #59 in total 3PM with 107, two ahead of Mike Conley's 105, the Grizzlies once again finished dead last in three's attempted & made and T-19th for overall 3PT%. The perpetual need for shooters in Memphis has been beaten to death ad nauseam, but it's still a prominent issue, so get out your hittin' sticks ( I guess baseball bats are appropriate for this time of year).

As far as what the Grizzlies will have to pay Mike Miller for another encore, the fair number I'm feeling out in the marketplace seems to be around $4 million a year. The key will be finding a compromise in the number of years, somewhere between 2-3, on a potential contract.
