The signing would bring the Raptors roster total to 12 players after the team's two trade deadline deals brought the roster down to 10. Per TSN's Josh Lewenberg, Toronto has until the end of the All-Star break to fill two of its three open roster slots.
There is a sense of familiarity with Miller, who has spent the past two seasons with the Raptors organization. In the 2017 offseason, he signed a two-way contract with the Raptors and split time with Toronto and its G League affiliate Raptors 905 during the 2017-18 season.
Miller, a 6-foot-7 forward, appeared in 15 games with the Toronto Raptors in the 2017-18 season; he earned four starts and scored a career-high eight points in a win over the Knicks in March 2018.
While playing for Nick Nurse at the 2018 Las Vegas Summer League, Miller suffered a torn labrum that would sideline him for the coming months. He rehabbed with Raptors 905 and made his season debut after missing the first 28 games of the season. In six games with Raptors 905 this season, the 25-year-old averaged 8.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 22.8 minutes per game.
Miller, who has shot 38.6 percent from deep over the course of his three-year G League career, brings 3-point shooting to the Raptors, who traded C.J. Miles to acquire Marc Gasol. He and the Raptors will be back in action Monday night when they host the Brooklyn Nets.
