Two things are clear now that Robinson is out. First, a Miller deal now almost has to include a guard in return. There was a time when that wasn’t a necessity, but now it will be. The Nuggets could deal him for not much and go the D-League route to fill the open position, but that’s not a better option than getting a player already on an NBA bench in return. Denver Post

League executives are conflicted on who would be a better fit among the other big point guards potentially available, the Nuggets’ Andre Miller or the Bulls’ Kirk Hinrich. Miller is a better offensive option than Hinrich but, as he has demonstrated in Denver, is not happy if he isn’t playing; there are questions, however, if Hinrich has enough left to be a playoff factor at either end of the floor.

The Knicks are now said to want to work their way into the bidding for Denver’s very available Andre Miller, but the same problem that doomed New York in the Lowry chase a month ago -- limited assets to offer -- doesn’t bring much hope. ESPN.com

According to a league source, there is a slim chance embattled guard Andre Miller could suit up again while the Nuggets continue to attempt to trade him. Miller has missed four consecutive games after being dismissed from the team for a mandatory two games after an on-court verbal confrontation with Shaw during the Nuggets' loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Jan. 1. Miller worked out on the Nuggets' practice court as recently as Thursday. Any return by Miller would come with the understanding that playing time still would be scarce or nonexistent. Denver Post

One possible obstacle to the trade of Denver Nuggets guard Andre Miller to the Kings that seemed somewhat likely a few days ago? Travis Outlaw. The Sacramento forward is owed $3 million this season and another $3 million next, and the Kings' insistence that he be included in a possible deal with the Nuggets is one of the many reasons it hasn't happened (and may not).

The Kings have been mentioned in several reports involving Denver’s Andre Miller, but league sources Wednesday night told The Bee the Kings had yet to make a formal offer for the 37-year-old point guard. In Wednesday’s trade rumors, the Kings reportedly made separate offers to Denver: Sacramento Bee

Miller is on the trading block after being suspended for two games by the Nuggets following a verbal altercation with coach Brian Shaw last week. Miller, who was upset after being benched for a Jan. 1 loss to Philadelphia – the first game in his career he missed while healthy – has been reinstated to the team but has not played since a loss to Miami on Dec. 30. The Kings have talked with Denver about Miller’s availability but have not moved forward with making formal offers for him, sources said, adding no deal is imminent and the sides have not talked in a few days.

The Kings have offered Marcus Thornton and a future second-round pick as the framework of a deal for Miller, and have presented a package including Jimmer Fredette and a future second as an alternative, two people familiar with the scenarios said Wednesday. Those people familiar with the terms of those offers did not know the third scenario presented by Sacramento, but executives gathered here for the D-League Showcase surmised that it likely involves forward Jason Thompson. Executives scouting the development league event suspect that the Kings are now showcasing Thornton, who has moved ahead of first-round pick Ben McLemore in Sacramento's starting lineup. The Kings would have to furnish another player in a potential deal involving Fredette to make the trade work under NBA rules. CBSSports.com

Even with the Warriors' current nine-game winning streak, they remain on the lookout for a point guard to play behind Stephen Curry. While small forward Andre Iguodala spends ample time as a playmaking point-forward and veteran Toney Douglas provides spot minutes, this is the void that was created when Jarrett Jack left for Cleveland as a free agent last July. Hinrich is certainly not the only possible solution on the Warriors' radar, as they remain in the mix for Denver point guard Andre Miller as well. USA Today Sports
