After a disappointing first-round exit in the NBA playoffs last season, the Los Angeles Clippers have begun to make moves in order to right the ship moving forward.
With some uncertainty circulating about superstar Chris Paul potentially heading elsewhere in free agency, the team chose to part ways with head coach Vinny Del Negro and bring in Doc Rivers. The team’s front office didn’t stop there with a blockbuster trade following the acquisition of Rivers to bring J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles and signed backup point guard Darren Collison.
Apparently, the team might not be content with all the moves made thus far as veteran sharpshooter Mike Miller may be the next target for the Clippers once having cleared waivers according to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe via Twitter:
If Mike Miller clears waivers, expect the Los Angeles #Clippers to be interested in his services. Played for Doc Rivers in Orlando

Miller was amnestied by the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat saving the team $17 million.
The addition of Miller would be ideal for the Clippers with the team stacked with shooters surrounding Blake Griffin and Paul.
If the Clippers were to stand pat with the current roster, Paul and company would be a legitimate NBA title contender and arguably the team to beat in the Western Conference. Miller heading to Los Angeles at a discount will only help the team’s chances of competing moving forward.
Miller played for Rivers with the Orlando Magic making the signing a logical choice for the veteran forward.
