It was the worst kept secret in the world. Mike Miller and James Jones, two of LeBron James‘ former teammates in South Florida, was rumored to join King James in Northeast Ohio to help him bring a championship to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It became a reality on Tuesday, when Miller and Jones officially coming to terms with the Cavs on contracts that will reunite them with James:

Now some Miami Heat loyalists will brand Miller and Jones as traders. I say what for? The Heat were the ones that cut Miller loose in a cost-cutting affair that angered James. Jones has given his all to the Heat, even after his playing time was slashed to the point where he could had been considered as part of the Heat’s cheer team.
Both players will help out a Cavs team that is rapidly trying to turn into a title contending team. Both Miller and Jones will spread the floor with their outside shooting, and with Kevin Love essentially on the way, James and Kyrie Irving will find themselves with ample room to dominate and terrorize the paint.
So to recap: The Cavs made to great signings, Miller and Jones will officially be branded as traitors to Heat fans, and King James is finally realizing that making the choice to come back home was the right decision.
Happy days are here again Cleveland.
