HoopsHype Andre Miller rumors

February 14, 2014 Updates

The Nuggets, who stumbled into the break losing four straight road games by a combined 110 points, are looking to revive trade talks for point guard Andre Miller, who hasn't played since Dec. 30. The Sixers are one team that could absorb his $5 million salary, but Denver would prefer to find a team that needs Miller for a playoff push and thus would be willing to give up an asset. With an underachieving team and payroll that is clogged up for the next two seasons, the Nuggets are expected to be active at the deadline. CBSSports.com

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw was asked if the Nuggets had reached out to Andre Miller for a possible return, given the team’s dire need for a reserve point guard with Nate Robinson out for the season after ACL surgery. The short answer? No. There won’t be any reaching out from our end,” Shaw said. “I think we’ve operated and done everything that we’re supposed to do. So, if there’s any reaching out that needs to be done I think the reaching out has to come from him to us." Denver Post

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
