At least that’s the way it’s looking.
According to a recent report, the Denver Nuggets want to move Andre Miller in the next 24-48 hours. If so, it looks like Miller has played his last game in a Nuggets uniform.
It hasn’t been a secret or anything. Miller was always going to get traded and everyone knew it.
Andre Miller, who was excused from all team activities for four days, won’t be part of the Nuggets for long after he returns.
The Nuggets are actively trying to trade Miller, according to a league source. If accomplished, it would be the second time Denver traded him. He was traded in 2006 in a package that brought Allen Iverson to the Nuggets.
Right now the favorites seem to be the Sacramento Kings, but nothing is certain at the moment.
Sacramento Kings general manager Pete D’Alessandro – a longtime Nuggets executive – has been at the forefront of trying to acquire Miller, league sources said. The Kings plan would be to use Miller as a mentor for the franchise’s talented young point guard, Isaiah Thomas.
Denver general manager Tim Connelly has had conversations with multiple teams, including Sacramento. Miller is owed the balance of his $5 million this season and a partial guarantee of $2 million in 2014-15 on his contract.
Miller is averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists in just 19 minutes per contest.
