Cleveland Cavaliers (2000–2003)

Mihm was picked 7th overall by the Chicago Bulls but was then traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In his first season, he was injured three times in that season which forced him to miss 26 games. In his second season with the Cavaliers, he started 60 of his 74 games but missed eight games with a right knee contusion. In his third season, he missed his first 27 games due to a strained left hamstring. In fourth and final season with the Cavaliers, he played 22 games for them. He was traded by the Cavaliers with Ricky Davis, Michael Stewart and a second-round draft choice to the Boston Celtics for Tony Battie, Kedrick Brown and Eric Williams.

Boston Celtics (2003–2004)

Mihm was a reserve center for Mark Blount. Mihm played in 54 games for the Celtics but missed a game due to a strained left hamstring. He was then in the off-season acquired by the Los Angeles Lakers along with Chucky Atkins and Jumaine Jones in exchange for Gary Payton, Rick Fox and a future first round draft pick.

He also had his career-highs of 25 points, 11 field goals made, and 18 field goal attempts versus Orlando. In his second season with the Lakers, he started 56 times in 59 games, averaging a career-high 10.2 points on .501 shooting from the field. He missed six games due to a sprained right shoulder and missed 17 regular season games plus with playoffs due to a severely sprained right ankle. In the next season, he missed all the games because he was recovering from his right ankle surgeries.
