Miller and Jones hope Ray Allen will be next to join the Cavs…
Having been introduced to the media, new Cleveland Cavaliers recruit Mike Miller has insisted that the goal next season is obviously to win an NBA championship.
After being attracted by the chance to play alongside former team-mate LeBron James, Miller will undoubtedly hope to contribute in a similar fashion to their successful time together in Miami where they won back-to-back championships with the Heat.
The former Memphis Grizzlies star was introduced alongside James Jones by general manager David Griffin, and the trio insisted that they were excited about the challenge of ending the city’s 50-year wait for another championship.
“Winning a championship takes a lot of hard work,” Miller said, ESPN reports.
“It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do. I was able to be a part, and James was able to be a part, of an unbelievable ride in Miami.”
It has been an incredible turnaround for the Cavaliers over the past few months after a disappointing season last year, as they not only re-signed James but ensured point guard Kyrie Irving was committed to a long-term contract, drafted Andrew Wiggins with the No.1 overall pick and added Miller, Jones and possibly Ray Allen.
In addition, it is widely reported that they will conclude a trade deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves at the end of this month for power forward Kevin Love, and as a result they will undoubtedly be considered strong favourites to win a championship next season.
New coach David Blatt will be the man to ensure that the new players settle and his roster is united, but with so much experience and young talent at his disposal, he will be relishing the opportunity to lead his new team into next season and Miller will be a key piece in reaching their goal.
