Miller told reporters before the Timberwolves win over the Golden State Warriors on Monday that he plans to retire at season's end to focus on his hunting television show: "Country Boys Outdoors". "For anyone that is listening, I'm going to retire after this season. It's time to concentrate on 'Country Boys'. I'm done."
Miller has been a veteran presence for the TWolves this season and his knowledge obtained from Rick Adelman's system after years with him in Sacramento & Houston. He's been a big help to the Wolves' big men such as Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Derrick Williams etc.
This ends Miller's 14-year NBA career. Over 14 years, Miller has averaged 11.3ppg & 7.2rpg. Miller has played for six different teams in that time: the Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets & Minnesota Timberwolves.
Miller is more of a locker room & veteran presence for Minnesota this season. He's only played in 7 games this season.
The Timberwolves hold a $5.1million team option for him next season and are expected to agree with him to a small buyout. David Kahn said that he'd like Miller to remain with the team in some capacity if he's interested.
In “Country Boys Outdoors” Miller and his long-time friend Jon Brunson travel the globe, big-game hunting. “Country Boys Outdoors” was selected best new series at the 2009 Sportsman Choice Awards.
That's all for now, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
