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.

Redick landed hard on the floor and his teammates rushed to confront Outlaw and the Kings stepped in to defend Outlaw. But after review, the officials ruled Outlaw’s foul was worthy of an ejection. “When I reached out I couldn’t stop him from falling,” Outlaw said. “I was trying to but he was too strong and he went on down. It happens I guess.” Outlaw, however, did not expect to be ejected. “I was surprised but he fell kind of hard,” Outlaw said. “Then the (Clippers) rushing over there. I think the situation made it more than what it was.” Sacramento Bee

The Sacramento Kings have been awarded former New Jersey Nets forward Travis Outlaw after placing the highest bid in the NBA’s amnesty waiver process, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. After Nets coach Avery Johnson pushed for his signing a year ago, Outlaw received a five-year, $35 million free-agent deal, but never delivered the type of production that warranted the contract. New Jersey used the amnesty clause to waive him. Yahoo! Sports

Outlaw signed a five-year contract worth $35 million with the New Jersey Nets last season. The Kings did not disclose how much they bid for Outlaw, though a person with knowledge of the situation confirmed reports the bid was $3 million a season. Outlaw had been rumored to be a possibility to be waived under the amnesty clause. The Nets did so Friday, the last day players could be waived under the clause. "It got a little nerve-racking," said Outlaw's agent, Bill Duffy. "But he's familiar with the West, having played for Portland." Sacramento Bee
