The Washington Wizards have been looking for a backup point guard for some time now. It appears that they’ve finally found him.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski (first reported), the Wizards have acquired Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets via a three team trade. The Wizards will surrender Eric Maynor (Philadelphia) and Jan Vesely (to Denver) and will receive Miller. In addition to Maynor, the Sixers will also receive two second-round picks from Washington.
Miller last played for the Nuggets in late December, due to a difference of opinion with Denver head coach Brian Shaw. Apparently, if Miller isn’t going to play for the Nuggets, the next best thing was for him to hope for a trade. That’s exactly what the 37-year-old point guard got.
Miller was averaging six points and three assists in 30 games with the Nuggets. He was also averaging only 19 minutes per game as a reserve.
