Report: Denver hopes to move Andre Miller in next 48 hours, Kings aggressive in talks

It looks like Andre Miller has played his last game as a Denver Nugget.

That the Nuggets and coach Brian Shaw can’t make it work with a crafty veteran guard popular with his teammates is an interesting dynamic, but not the one we are focused on right now. Everyone knows the Nuggets want to move him.

Rather, the question is where and when he gets moved. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports suggests it could be the Kings and it could be within the next 48 hours.

Know nothing is set in stone, but that is the buzz. There are a lot of teams that could use Miller as a reserve guard — he is strong at setting up teammates and plays a very smart game (Zach Lowe of Grantland nicknamed him Professor Miller). Last season under George Karl he averaged 9.6 points and 5.9 assists a game, numbers that have decreased under Brian Shaw but in another system he would be a valuable addition.

Sacramento wants some depth at the point and a veteran to mentor Isaiah Thomas.

Expect the Kings to be active on the trade market, according to multiple reports around the league. After years of the Maloofs tying the hands of their GM, the new ownership group wants to shake things up.

    Personalities are clashing in Sac (that’s what happens when you build your team around Demarcus Cousins). I wouldn’t be surprised to see Isaiah Thomas as part of a deal and/or Jason Thompson. Or Marcus Thornton. Or Jimmer. Or hell, just about anyone. Or maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part.

      i think he’d rather play in the D-League than end up on the Kings.

    If you think that Isaiah Thomas is going to be a part of a trade for Andre Miller, you’re not really “thinking” at all. I could see Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson, or Jimmer Fredette being a part of this trade.

    I personally think that Andre Miller and Anthony Randolph to the Warriors for Draymond Green and a 2nd round pick is a fair trade….any thoughts?

  5. norcaldeportes - Jan 6, 2014 at 8:44 PM

    Part of A deal. Not necessarily, THIS deal. Who’s not really thinking?

    Miller for Jimmer and Thompson seems plausible. Thomas isn’t going anywhere, he’s developing into the PG they need hence them getting rid of Vasquez…

    D-Williams ‘s ankle is done. Miller can throw dimes to KG, the truth and Joe. He and Kidd will quickly get on the same page.

      I know the Nets are looking desperately for answers to get their team jump-started. Bringing in another old and slow player is NOT that answer.

      Miller can help some teams but the Nets aren’t one of them.

    denver should give him to the knicks just as a thank you for the melo deal

    He may be old, but he’s definitely not slow…
