The Houston Rockets are interested in SF Mike Miller according to Ronald Tillery (Commercial Appeal).
L.A. Clippers, Denver, Houston, OKC and Memphis are teams courting Mike Miller, who says Memphis will have final shot at signing him

Miller, 34, averaged 7.1 points per game, playing in all 82 games last season.
Miller is likely to stay in Memphis, recently saying “my heart is in Memphis”. However, Miller still wants to win another ring, and the Grizzlies aren’t amongst the elite in the Western Conference. Joining a team like the Rockets, Clippers, or Thunder would give him a better chance at winning another wring.
The veteran sharpshooter would be a great fit with the Rockets. He shot just under 46 percent from beyond the arc last season, and would be a great backup to James Harden and whoever ends up playing at small forward.
Miller shouldn’t cost the Rockets too much, but they may have to outbid Memphis in order to secure one of the best three-point shooters available.
We should know more about Miller’s decision by the weekend.
