Patrick Miller is joining Gaziantep for the rest of the season. The former Tennessee State star signed with the Turkish side early Jan. 16, with Miller's agent announcing the signing via Twitter.
Miller started the season with Partizan NIS in Serbia, averaging 15.8 points and 4.6 assists per game across all competitions, which included both the Adriatic League and the FIBA Europe Cup. This season is Miller's first abroad since the 2014-2015 season, where he played in Turkey for Besiktas and Yesilgiresun Belediye. He's spent the past two seasons in the NBA G League playing for the Texas Legends (2015-2016) and the Sioux Falls Skyforce (2016-2017). According to his agent, Gaziantep bought out Miller's contract after a tremendous first half of his season, and he is signed with the Turkish side through the end of the year.
Gaziantep could certainly use his help; the team is in second-to-last place in the Turkish Basketball Super League with a 3-12 record, and is at the bottom of its group in the Basketball Champions League with a 2-8 record. Miller's play-making abilities will certainly give a boost to the team in the short term, and will hopefully help them carve out a few more wins.
