Mike Miller is strongly considering filing a lawsuit against the Miami Heat because he believes the franchise bears some responsibility for him being swindled by a con man, according to attorney Andrew Fine.

Miller, who now plays for the Memphis Grizzlies, lost $1.7 million in a scam allegedly orchestrated by Haider Zafar.

Heat employee Stephen Weber introduced Miller to Zafar, and Zafar used $700,000 of the money he stole from Miller to pay for courtside Heat tickets.

Settlement talks between Miller and the Heat have stalled. Miller asked for that $700,000 back from the Heat, plus attorney’s fees, but “the parties were far apart,” Fine said.

In the potential lawsuit, Miller is seeking the entire $1.7 million that he lost in Zafar’s scam. Current Heat players James Jones and Rashard Lewis also were reportedly defrauded in a scam but are not pursuing claims against the team.

Miller was released by the Heat under the amnesty provision in the offseason and signed a free agent deal with the Memphis Grizzlies.
