HoopsHype Andre Miller + Trade rumors

"They gave me an opportunity to represent Denver," Miller said. "I tried to do that the right way, but I was looked at as the bad guy, a disgruntled player. [The Nuggets said] I was complaining about minutes and that was never the issue. They made it look that way, and that I was upset. I understand that they have to protect themselves as an organization, but don't blast the player. "I came out and represented the organization, played games, practiced and did it the right way. Don't bash me. It's not true saying I was disgruntled about minutes and complaining. In reality, I was just speaking up for guys on the team and being a veteran leader. I was just doing my job."

Shaw has previously said his communication with Miller could've been better. Miller wished the same. "It's really not about coach, player," Miller said. "It's really about communication from the top. In a team meeting we talked about communication between the coaches and the players. Anybody can coach, but how do you deal with players and egos and attitudes and communicate with people – that's the main thing. "I communicated on my end. There was no communication on their end."

Connelly is dealing from a position of no leverage, so the Nuggets are getting one-sided offers. Miller has wanted out of town since an episode Jan. 1, when he publicly ripped coach Brian Shaw during a game against Philadelphia. The veteran point guard has not been around the team since, while the Nuggets have tried to move him. But as of Wednesday, they weren't close to a deal. Denver Post
