Miller, 35, has appeared in only seven games this season. The Timberwolves hold a $5.1 million team option for Miller next season.
“For anyone that is listening, I’m going to retire after this season,” Miller said prior to the T’wolves game at Golden State on Monday night. “It’s time to concentrate on ‘Country Boys.’ I’m done.”
In “Country Boys Outdoors,” Miller and his long-time friend Jon Brunson travel the world while big-game hunting. “Country Boys Outdoors” was selected best new series at the 2009 Sportsman Choice Awards.
