Well, looks like there definitely was an agreed upon Super Friends plan before free agency.
Riley met with Miller in the very first moments after free agency opened at 12:01 a.m. eastern time on July 1, sitting down with him in a Beverly Hills hotel room for a sales pitch unlike any other.
The Heat, Riley said that night, were going after James and Bosh to join Wade. And they wanted Miller to join the party.
Miller talked with at least four other teams after that, but in the end, nothing was going to change his mind about coming to the Heat.
“Pat had a vision for the team, a vision that he laid out with evangelical fervor,” Miller’s agent, Arn Tellem, wrote on his blog earlier this week. “We left the room converted.”
