Forward | G League Ignite
Height: 6’10” | Weight: 210 pounds
Draft age 2023: 19.56
Despite showing considerable interest among teams leading up to the 2022 NBA draft, Miller eventually abandoned the process and decided to spend a year in the G League with the Ignite. The Canadian forward attended the combine and looked solid but is banking on him showing improvement next season for a potentially higher pick than last year.
Miller has good perimeter sense for his size. He is comfortable with the ball in his hands and confident in his overall game. What has concerned Scouts up to this point has been his knight and his decision making. While the 6-foot-10 forward shows tremendous upward movement, he has just as many moments where he looks nowhere ready for the NBA game.
Miller’s jump shot doesn’t look great mechanically, which is probably why it’s not efficient at all from beyond the arc. The left-hander has no problem getting to the edge in halfcourt and running the transition break, but the jumper has to do a lot to reach his ceiling. At this point, he’s just not a good shot off color.
If he can improve as a playmaker and limit turnovers and errors, Miller could really take it to a new level. This will add to his potential to be a point forward that NBA teams love in the modern game. He is still very raw but will have to adapt quickly in the coming season.
Defending is promising for Miller as he is of great height and has good foot movement. This should allow him to guard multiple positions as he moves forward. He’s still a bit undisciplined on this side of the ball, but playing in the G-League system should help him clean that up.

This season, he will play in the G League all season with and against NBA-level talent. With two potential first-round picks in Scoot Henderson and Sidy Cissoko playing alongside him with Ignite, there will be ample opportunity for Miller to prove he’s an elite talent.
Overall, until he shows more consistency, Miller is predicting to be a high-risk, high-reward player. The benefit is certainly there, but does it all tie together?
