With the 48th pick in the 2023 NBA Draft, the Clippers selected Jordan Miller, a wing from University of Miami.

Jordan Miller averaged 15.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists, and 1.2 steals on 54.5/35.2/78.4 shooting splits last year at Miami. Jordan Miller is almost the exact same age at Kobe Brown at 23.5, making them two of the oldest players who were taken in this draft. A big guard at 6’6, 205 pounds, Miller is an excellent scorer from two-point range who is fairly limited from three (32.9% on 2.4 attempts across five college seasons).

Miller is a good athlete with a nice first step, a great combo with his finishing. That made him an extremely efficient scorer, boasting True Shooting of over 60% in both his seasons at Miami. Miller also has long arms and good quickness, combining with his height to give him multi-positional versatility defensively. Miller isn’t much of a playmaker for a guard, but also didn’t turn the ball over, which is nice – he could be a tertiary ballhandler at the NBA level.

Like Kobe Brown, the swing skill for Miller is shooting. If he can be just an average three-point shooter, his rim scoring package (similar to Terance Mann) will be much more effective. Despite his age, there’s some upside here due to his legitimate two-way potential as a scorer and defender.

There were still other guys I had higher on my board, like Trayce Jackson-Davis, Jaylen Clark, and Terquavion Smith, but Miller is a nice pick at 48. I’d guess he’s on a two-way deal considering how many guards the Clippers currently have, but we will see.

Jordan Miller, welcome to the Clippers! The Jordan Miller pick should conclude the 2023 draft for the Clippers, but it’s possible they bring someone to training camp after the draft is over.
