Reginald Wayne Miller (born August 24, 1965, in Riverside, California) is a retired American professional basketball player. Miller spent the entirety of his 18-year NBA career with the Indiana Pacers. Miller was known for his precision three-point field goal shooting, especially in clutch situations. He holds the NBA record for career three-pointers made (2,560). Currently, he works as an NBA commentator (along with his sister Cheryl) for TNT.

Miller is one of five Pacer greats (the others are Roger Brown, Mel Daniels, Coach Bobby "Slick" Leonard and George McGinnis) to have his jersey (#31) retired by the Pacers. Reggie Miller was recently selected for the Pacers' 40th anniversary team.

Reggie was selected by the Pacers with the 11th pick in the 1st round of the 1987 NBA Draft. Miller wore jersey number 31 while playing on the Pacers, backing up shooting guard John Long before he became a starter. Also, fans were initially upset that the Pacers chose Miller over Indiana University product Steve Alford; fans watching the 1987 NBA Draft booed Pacers President Donnie Walsh for the selection. Miller gained a respectable following early in his career as he helped turn the Pacers into a perennial playoff team.

Miller was a member of the gold medal-winning Olympic men's basketball team in 1996 and of the US national team for the 1994 FIBA World Championship and 2002 FIBA World Championship. 

Miller played more games with the same team than all but two players in NBA history, John Stockton and Karl Malone of the Utah Jazz. Over the course of his career, Miller scored 25,279 points, with an average of 18.2 points per game. He shot .471 from the field, .395 from 3-point range and .888 from the free throw line. Miller was the first Indiana Pacer to start in an NBA All-Star Game, first doing so in 1995. He was also selected to the team in 1990, 1996, 1998 and 2000.

Miller is the all-time NBA leader in total 3-point field goal made (2,560) and ranks at 13th place in total points (25,279)[1], 7th in free throw percentage (88.8%), 6th in minutes played (47,619) and 7th in games played (1,323). He is also all-time NBA leader in total three-point field goals made in the playoffs (320). Miller is the NBA's career leader in four-point plays with 24.
