Retired NBA guard Mike Miller sent out a cryptic tweet to his former teammate LeBron James on Tuesday. This comes after news that Avery Bradley won't be returning to the Los Angeles Lakers for the continuation of the 2019-20 season on June 30.

Bradley reportedly wishes to spend time with his ailing son, prompting Miller to ask James if the position is now available.

Following the league's new regulations for its “bubble” season in Orlando, Florida, the Lakers will be allowed to bring in replacements for players who refuse to return.

Bradley brought valuable shooting and defense to the Lakers' backcourt this year. Miller, who last played for the Nuggets in 2017, was also a respected 3-and-D guy during his playing days.

The 6-foot-8 swingman also has chemistry with LeBron James, having won back-to-back titles with the Heat in 2012 and 2013.

Miller has career averages of 10.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.6 steals in 18 seasons in the league. With the Larry O'Brien trophy on their sights, the Purple and Gold could certainly use his 40.7 percent success rate from downtown.

However, the 40-year-old Miller is likely just teasing some fans considering he now serves as an assistant coach under Penny Hardaway for the University of Memphis. While it would be nice to see Miller come out of retirement, the Lakers do have more enticing options to choose from.

JR Smith, another former LeBron teammate, is expected to be the frontrunner. The Lakers are one of the favorites to win it all this year, after recording the best record in the West (49-14) prior to the suspension of the season.

The team might look for more viable replacements, as back-up center Dwight Howard's status also remains questionable.
