The 27-year-old, who just recently celebrated his birthday on September 4, should not be mistaken for another player of the same name from Holy Cross who played with the Toronto Raptors last season. Instead, the Formosa Dreamers’ Malcolm Miller is a 6’6″ wing forward from Texas who starred at Southern University in the Southwest Athletic Conference (SWAC) for two seasons from 2012 to 2014. At Southern, Miller was teammates with 2015-2016 ABL Champion, Calvin Godfrey (KL Dragons).
He averaged 14.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, and shot a red hot 42.1% from downtown in his two years at the school as one of the best players in the entire conference. Miller garnered SWAC First-Team All Conference honors in both seasons and was also the SWAC Newcomer of the Year in 2013.
“He’ll be making money to play basketball somewhere, I don’t know where, but he’ll make it,” Mark Coffman, Miller’s high school coach, said back in 2013. “He’s that good.”
Indeed, Miller has been making money to play basketball ever since graduating from Southern in 2014. His professional career started off in Luxembourg and then went to Hungary before landing with the Maine Redclaws of the NBA G-League in 2016-2017. His most recent action was in the Canadian National Basketball League (NBL) where he played with the Saint John Riptide alongside another former ABL Champion, Gabe Freeman (2009-2010 Philippine Patriots).

“I’m excited to be in Taiwan and playing here next season. Can’t wait to meet all of my teammates and see all the great fans and work hard this season and win. Go Dreamers!” Miller said in his signing announcement video posted on the Formosa Dreamers’ social media accounts.
The Dreamers are coming off a 1-19 debut season where they finished in 9th place of the standings.
