Diamond is an appropriate first name for Miller because she’s the jewel of this class. A 6-3 guard from the University of Maryland, Miller played in 34 games (34 starts) for the Terps, while averaging 19.7 points, 2.9 assists and 2.1 steals per game her senior year. She’s expected to have a big role immediately for the Lynx.

The Lynx start training camp later this month then have their first preseason game May 5 vs. Washington.
