Oklahoma City Thunder guard Ty Jerome got a little sentimental on Twitter after the team announced they had waived forward Darius Miller.

Jerome, who spent his rookie season on the Phoenix Suns before arriving in Oklahoma City over the 2020 offseason as part of the Chris Paul trade, said that Miller is among the best teammates he has ever had — and might be the best.

“One of, if not the best teammate I’ve ever had .. great player, better person.. love my boy. Thanks for everything,” Jerome said, tagging Miller in a quote-tweet attached to the Thunder tweet announcing the transaction.

Miller was only with the Thunder for part of a single season, but his impact off the court was evident by ways Jerome and Isaiah Roby spoke about him.

Miller appeared in 18 games for the Thunder, serving a limited role on the court due to the organization’s desire to evaluate young players, but he was active with the team and at practices.

After the win over the Toronto Raptors on March 31, the first time Miller had played in two weeks, Roby said the team often jokes around that Miller is the best shooter.

“We always joke around — like I think he missed one shot tonight — he might miss one shot, if we played basketball today, he might miss one shot all day. He’s a great shooter,” Roby said (In that game, Miller went 4-for-6 from the field and made three of the five 3-pointers he attempted).

“We always kind of have that joke, like, he’s the best shooter in the world, so anytime he shoots the ball, we all think it’s going in.”

In total, Miller shot 40.5% from behind the arc on 2.3 attempts over 10.9 minutes per appearance.

He will now try to join a team in need of the deep shot as he works to get more playing time this year and secure a contract for next season.
