3. Jordan Miller, Miami Hurricanes
Miller had the game of his life in the Elite Eight, essentially carrying the Hurricanes down the stretch to beat second-seeded Texas.
The 6-7 forward had 27 points on a perfect 7-for-7 shooting. He went 13-for-13 from the free-throw line for good measure.
Miller was Miami’s offense in the second half. He owned multiple Texas defenders in one-on-one situations, using his length, quickness, and a few nifty left-handed finishes at the rim the Longhorns weren’t ready for.
In the event the fifth-year senior didn’t get to the rim, he found open shooters or big men under the basket, showing good offensive IQ and a bit of passing chops.
Miller’s 23 years old, doesn’t have much of an outside shot, and is a skinny 195 pounds. He won’t be the same matchup nightmare in the NBA as he was against Texas. There’s something to his good-at-everything, great-at-nothing game, though, that should give him a shot at the next level.
Portland could do a lot worse than adding a wing with Miller’s skill set to its summer league roster and seeing what develops.
