The Cavs are considering picking up Miller off amnesty waivers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.
When a player is amnestied he goes on waivers and teams under the salary cap can bid to take over a portion of his salary and get the player. In this case, Miller is owed $6.2 million next season, the Cavaliers can claim him off waivers and pay, say, $1.5 million of that and get him the Heat would pay the remaining $4.7 million, but they would save on the luxury tax as Miller comes off the official books.
If the Cavaliers or another team does not claim him off waivers a 48 hour window Miller becomes an unrestricted free agent.
The Rockets are reportedly one team interested if Miller does clear waivers.
