An opposing scout on Clippers point guard Andre Miller, who's among eight LA. players slated for free agency this summer:
"Miller's stock has dropped this year. With Cleveland last season he led the NBA in assists [10.9 per game], which put him up there with point guards like Jason Kidd and Steve Nash. But he's had a drop-off this year [to 6.8] despite having better talent around him. Miller hasn't been able to show leadership in that locker room. He's a smart player with all-around skills, and he's going to have a nice career once he gets liberated from the Clippers. But most of the teams with free-agent money are struggling to find leadership, and I don't know if they're going to get that from a low-key guy like Miller."
