Question: How much are we paying Brad Miller and when does his contract expire? Because, frankly, the Kings will never contend for a title paying that guy like he is a top player in this league. Nothing personal,but that guy is a huge disappointment. We knew from the start he couldn't play defense or rebound, and now he can't seem to shoot or pass.

Answer: Players like Miller are part of a niche market to begin with, with only those teams looking for unconventional big men who can bury a jumper interested. Add in the fact that he's signed through 2010 and has more than $34 million on his contract, and the Kings would be well-advised to get a system back in place that makes the most of Miller.
Rick Adelman did that, and Eric Musselman did not. I always found it puzzling that Musselman spoke more of Miller's three-point shooting ability than he did his passing in the high post, and the misuse of Miller was compounded by his shooting stroke disappearing for much of the season.
