2023 Fantasy Outlook
Miller played his lone college season at Alabama, where he led the Crimson Tide to the No. 1 overall seed in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. In 37 appearances for Alabama, Miller put up 18.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks per game while shooting 38.4 percent from three on 7.5 attempts per game. At the end of the season, Miller was named the SEC Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year, SEC Tournament MVP and a consensus All-American. A scorer who's equally comfortable attacking the rim as he is launching threes, Miller has excellent size at 6-foot-9 with a wingspan approaching seven feet. While he'll need to eventually add weight, Miller is already crafty, using his length and athleticism to get to the hoop and finish over and around defenders. However, his Summer League performances were discouraging. He posted shooting splits of 38/31/78 on his 15.2 points across five appearances and didn't take games over in the way you'd hope from a Top 3 pick. He's expected to start at small forward, but there will be competition for playing time. Charlotte is a team trying to win, and if Gordon Hayward and Miles Bridges are playing well, Miller's playing time could be limited in certain matchups. Preseason will tell us more about how the team intends to use the rookie. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Brandon Miller played his lone college season at Alabama, where he led the Crimson Tide to the No. 1 overall seed in the 2023 NCAA Tournament. In 37 appearances for Alabama, Miller put up 18.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.9 blocks per game while shooting 38.4 percent from three on 7.5 attempts per game. Miller registered 14 games with at least 20 points and four games with at least 30, headlined by a season-high 41 points in a win over South Carolina on Feb. 22. In a win over Jacksonville State on Nov. 18, Miller drained seven three-pointers on his way to 28 points and eight rebounds. Later in the season, in a Jan. 14 win over LSU, Miller again hit seven threes, this time finishing with 31 points and nine boards. At the end of the season, Miller was named the SEC Player of the Year, SEC Freshman of the Year, SEC Tournament MVP and a consensus All-American. As a high school senior, Miller was named Mr. Basketball in the state of Tennessee. He went on to play in both the Jordan Classic and the McDonald's All-American Game. An elite scorer who's equally comfortable attacking the rim as he is launching threes, Miller has excellent size at 6-9 with a wingspan approaching seven feet. While he'll need to eventually add weight, Miller is already a crafty scorer who uses his length and athleticism to get to the hoop and finish over and around defenders. Scoring is his calling card, but Miller is a willing passer who displays high-level vision traits as a ball-handler and in the pick-and-roll. Mechanics-wise, Miller's jumpshot is nearly flawless, and his three-point (38.4%) and free-throw (85.9%) percentages portend borderline-elite shooting at the next level. Defensively, Miller is active and engaged and should have the size to keep up with most NBA wings. If not for Victor Wembanyama, Miller would be firmly in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. While he wasn't necessarily in that discussion entering his freshman season, Miller quickly established himself as the best player in college basketball. A projected top-three pick, Miller is the type of prospect who will likely start and handle a heavy workload from Day 1. Miller's game very closely resembles that of Paul George, almost to an uncanny degree. He also displays shades of Brandon Ingram, Andrew Wiggins and Buddy Hield.

Will be ready for camp

Coach Steve Clifford said Monday that Miller (wrist) will be ready for training camp, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.
ANALYSIS
This isn't a surprise, as the Hornets were presumably being extra cautious with all of their players towards the end of the regular season. Miller had a standout rookie campaign, compiling averages of 17.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.5 three-pointers across 74 appearances while shooting 44.0 percent from the field.
