Miller has new agent

Sixers point guard Andre Miller has reportedly hired Andy Miller as his new agent.

Miller is at the top of the food chain in NBA circles boasting Kevin Garnett and Chauncey Billups as clients. He also represents Sixers first-round pick Marreese Speights and recent free-agent pick up Donyell Marshall.

Miller's previous agent was Lon Babby, whose clients include Tim Duncan and Ray Allen.

Meanwhile, with training camp on the horizon the Sixers signed a trio of prospects, two with local ties, as camp fodder. On hand will be former Temple forward Antywane Robinson, former Iowa big man Jared Reiner, and former Strawberry Mansion and George Washington guard, Maureece Rice.

Robinson, 6-foot-8, averaged 8.0 points in his Temple career, which ended after the 2005-06 season. During that senior season, Robinson averaged 12.7 points and 5.0 rebounds. He spent the 2006-07 season with Sioux Falls of the NBA Development League, where during 49 games he averaged 6.4 points in 16.7 minutes per game. Last season he played in France with Pau-Orthez.

The 6-11 Reiner led the Big 10 Conference in rebounding when he was a junior at Iowa. Undrafted out of college, he played 19 games with the Chicago Bulls in 2004-05.

Rice, a 6-1 guard, was most recently tossed from GW. In high school, Rice scored 2,681 points to break Wilt Chamberlain's (2,206) Philly high school scoring record.
