Brandon Miller Not Currently In ‘Great Shape’, Interviews ‘Have Not Gone Great’
Brandon Miller is the type of multi-dimensional wing that every team in the NBA covets considering how he could become a very productive player even if he doesn’t reach his ceiling. Miller’s talent and position has put him under consideration to be drafted as high as No. 2 by the Charlotte Hornets.
But there are still questions surrounding Miller’s involvement in the killing of Jamea Jonae Harris and his interviews reportedly have not gone well in addition to his current conditioning level.
“Every team is looking for this type of player,” said ESPN’s Jonathan Givony on Zach Lowe’s podcast. “Six-nine, big guard, can handle the ball. Pass out of pick and roll. Make shots off the dribble. Defend multiple positions. Rebound. That’s what people are looking for.
“At the same time, he’s not in great shape right now. So I don’t know how great his workout is going to be.
“His interviews have not been great, I’ve been told. Both publicly and privately with NBA teams.
“I would put it 60 percent Brandon Miller at two, 40 percent Scoot Henderson. I do think they’re going to have trade conversations too. I would be shocked if they traded [the pick]. They would be out of their minds honestly. The best thing in the world that could have happened for them is getting the No. 2 pick.”
