When news broke late last week that NBA free agent Quincy Miller was heading to the D-League, the basketball world took note. Out of action nearly six weeks following his release from Denver in October, the 22-year-old swingman wasted little time silencing his critics and making a strong case for a quick NBA return.
In just 25 minutes of action, Miller put up 31 points on an impressive 6-10 from behind the arc, grabbing 4 rebounds, a steal, and a block, in a 156-130 rout over the Erie Bayhawks. With age, athleticism, and a renewed sense of determination on his side, Miller already appears destined for a call-up, garnering the attention of several GM’s from around the league. Rumors have tied the 6’10 forward to the Rockets, Lakers, Kings, and Sixers to name a few, and with continued production like he had Sunday night, it is not hard to see why.
When will we see Miller back in the league? Only time will tell, but this insider thinks “Q” is already well on his way.
