Mike Miller was waived in a luxury-tax move.
Mike Miller's attorney told the Miami Herald his client might be suing his former NBA team, the Miami Heat, after Miller lost $1.3 million in a fraudulent investment deal introduced to him by a team employee.
One problem, though. Mike Miller said his attorney wasn't supposed to let that cat out the bag.
Miller, who currently plays for the Memphis Grizzlies, sent a text message to the Associated Press apologizing to the Heat for the leaked information.
''I regret the unauthorized information shared disclosing a potential lawsuit and my private business dealings in the recent news reports,'' Miller wrote in a text message to the AP. ''The Heat has always supported me and my family and we are grateful for our relationship with the team and its owners. They have given me and my family more than we could have ever asked for and for that I am so thankful!!''
Miller's attorney said his client was introduced to shady businessman by the team's Vice President of sales, Stephen Weber. Weber, allegedly, knew at the time of the introduction that the said shady businessman owed the team $1 million for tickets.
Miller paid $2 million in the failed investment and received $700,000 back but is suing to recoup the remaining $1.3 million.
Lesson of the day for pro athletes, do your research. There's no such thing as quick money.
