Miller to play for Wizards’ summer-league team 

By Ken Sugiura

After going undrafted last Thursday, former Georgia Tech center Daniel Miller has agreed to play on the Washington Wizards’ summer-league team, according to a tweet from Yahoo Sports columnist Adrian Wojnarowski.

It doesn’t guarantee Miller anything beyond the minimum five games that the summer-league team will play beginning July 12. But, obviously, he’ll have a chance to earn a spot in their preseason camp and play in front of the rest of the NBA. Miller’s cause will be helped by the fact that Washington did not have a first-round pick and traded away their second-round pick for cash.

Miller will likely play alongside Glen Rice Jr., who played three seasons at Tech before being dismissed following the 2011-12 season. Following a season in the NBA Developmental League, Rice was drafted in the second round last year by Washington and appeared in 11 games for the Wizards.

The Wizards will play three games in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas and then have at least two games in the ensuing tournament. Games will be broadcast by NBA TV and also be available to subscribers on NBA.com.

I think Daniel will impress. He speed isn't great but when he is in the D end he can alter shots.

Glad Miller is getting a shot, he will have a better career than many of those Euro projects getting drafted
