6 BITS: Mike Miller traded, Casey Prather headed overseas, Tim Tebow throws, McElwain praised

1 » Former Florida Gators guard/forward Mike Miller, who signed a two-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers to play with superstar LeBron James and hopefully win another title before retiring, has been traded by the franchise to the Portland Trailblazers. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, who first reported the Miller trade, he will likely be bought out by Portland and become a free agent, though league rules prevent him from resigning with Cleveland for a full season.

With roster spots at a premium right now, Miller would likely have to wait to join a new team; he could also decide to retire. Miller, 35, is owed $2.85 million in the final year of his contract but will likely accept a buyout for a much lower amount. He has already received $400,000 as a trade kicker, a clause that was built into his Cavaliers contract.

6 BITS: Florida CB Hargreaves props up Wilson; Calathes to Greece; Gators add baseball talent

1 » When not talking about himself (let’s face it, those were the questions he was asked), Florida Gators junior All-American cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III spent time at the 2015 SEC Media Days on Monday propping up his teammates. Hargreaves believes the Gators will be the best secondary in the nation next season – and for good reason – but thinks that an overlooked member of that unit may be the reason why it could go from great to dominant as the year progresses.

“He reminds me of a Brandon Browner-type corner or an Antonio Cromartie-type of corner – one of those big lanky cornerbacks,” Hargreaves told FoxSports.com’s Bruce Feldman of Florida sophomore Quincy Wilson. “That’s his game, how he plays. He plays big and physical. I want y’all to watch him on Saturdays this fall. It’s remarkable (how much better) he’s gotten this offseason. Him and also Jalen Tabor, they’ve really grown and matured. They’re ready to play. They understand.”

Florida Gators PG Scottie Wilbekin to sign NBA contract with Philadelphia 76ers

Former Florida Gators point guard Scottie Wilbekin, who went undrafted in 2014 and spent the season shining overseas in Australia with the Cairns Taipans, has agreed to terms of an NBA contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, two sources confirmed to OnlyGators.com Saturday afternoon.

Wilbekin, who re-signed with the Taipans of Australia’s National Basketball League after being named the team’s Most Valuable Player and Defensive Player of the Year last season, had an opt-out clause in his new contract should he receive some form of guaranteed money from an NBA or Euroleague franchise.

4 BITS: Gators up for 2015 ESPY awards, Florida basketball players summer updates

1 » After showing out during 2015 NBA Summer League action in Orlando with the Orlando Magic, former Florida Gators point guard Scottie Wilbekin earned a second opportunity in Las Vegas with the Philadelphia 76ers. That kicked off for Wilbekin on Saturday as he scored nine points on 3-for-8 shooting in 21:02. He earned the start for the 76ers the following day and once again impressed, scoring 19 points on 4-of-8 shooting from deep with two assists and three steals in 29:38, the second-most minutes on the team. Wilbekin last week signed a one-year deal with the Cairns Taipans of Australia’s NBL after leading the team as its Most Valuable Player and Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. There is an out in that contract allowing Wilbekin to pursue his NBA dream if the opportunity presents itself, and he may very well be making strides in achieving that goal as soon as this season.
