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.

Previewing Florida’s 2015 Friday Night Lights


Mixing pomp and circumstance with football drills and relationship building, the Florida Gators use their annual Friday Night Lights camp at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium as both a recruiting tool and means of evaluating some of the best high school football players in the country. The Gators often host top-tier prospects over the FNL weekend but also find diamonds in the rough while coaching up the recruits.

The Swamp will once again filled with some of the top young talent in the nation on July 24, so much so that covering every player that plans to step on the field is a near impossibility. Below are a list of 14 players (in no particular order) to keep an eye on either because of their talent or high level of interest in attending Florida.

All referenced ratings and rankings are from the 247Sports Composite.

WR Nate Craig-Myers (Tampa, FL) –
The nation’s top-ranked receiver, Craig-Myers (6-foot-2, 205 pounds) is an impressive in-state prospect with a top two of Florida State and Auburn but growing interest in Florida. The Gators are not only after Craig-Myers but his brother, three-star cornerback Jayvaughn Myers (Dade City, FL), who also appears to be a Seminoles lean at this time. Craig-Myers will be visiting Gainesville for the second time in as many weeks; an impressive showing by Florida at FNL could turn his top two into a top three.

Four-star defensive back Chauncey Gardner II (Cocoa, FL) has been committed to the Florida Gators since March.

While at The Opening, a Nike-sponsored performance event in Oregon, Gardner was found wearing a brand new haircut with the script “Gators” logo shaved into the back of his head.
