A two time Southern Conference Player of the Year, 3 time Southern Conference Defensive Player of the year, and a 3 time member of the All-Southern Conference team, Isaiah Miller had a decorated collegiate career. As a senior, Miller averaged 19.2 PPG, 6.8 RPG, 4 APG, 2.6 SPG, 0.3 BPG, and 3 TOPG on shooting splits of 46/21/62. Below is his full scouting report:
Name: Isaiah Miller
Height/Weight: 6’0 / 180
Wingspan/ standing reach: 6’8 (unconfirmed)/ N/A
Hand size: N/A
Pre-Draft team: North Carolina-Greensboro
Tools: Defense, length, playmaking
- Elite college defender at PG
- Forces a lot of turnovers

Isaiah Miller is a slashing guard with playmaking chops and an elite ability to force turnovers. His resume at UNC Greensboro speaks for itself, being absolutely dominant in the mid-majors. In order for his game to translate to the next level, Miller needs to show off playmaking ability with a low turnover rate, an improved jumper, and ability to stay in front of his man in terms of footspeed. Miller is likely going to get a chance to shine in the Summer League, where his defense will likely make a name for itself. Miller isn’t scared to shoot over big men, but his form and jumper are far too inconsistent to be attempting jumpers at the rate he does. Miller is a crafty finisher and can dance around defenders thanks to his length and athleticism. With a reported 6’7+ wingspan and 40 inch vertical, Miller might be the rare guard to overcome his size due to his defensive disruption, athleticism, and overall playing bigger than his 6’0 frame. Miller is a great gamble for a two-way contract in undrafted free agency.
Similar to: Xavier Rathan-Mayes, TJ McConnell
Projected draft range: Undrafted
Expected role: End of bench defensive minded point guard
Unplayable if: Jump shooting can’t improve to compensate for lack of size.
Exceeds expectations if: His jump shooting improves, finishing translates, and his lack of size is made an advantage if he plays right.
