In a complete youth movement, the Denver Nuggets don’t have a lot of need for aging point guard Andre Miller.
That doesn’t mean they wont bring him back though.
Miller was a favorite of former head coach George Karl, but with a completely overhauled regime in Denver there was speculation that the Nuggets would attempt to trade the former University of Utah star.
They still might, but right now they’re holding their cards close to the chest as newly appointed general manager Tim Connelly says Miller will stick on the Nuggets roster:
So what about Andre Miller? Asked if last season’s backup point guard will remain with the Nuggets, Connelly said “Absolutely.” He said he spoke with Miller, as well as the other guards, before signing [Nate Robinson].
Miller is essentially an expiring contract as his deal becomes non-guaranteed after this season, where he is due a reported $5 million dollars.
That’s a relatively affordable figure for a playoff team in need of a backup veteran point guard like Miller, so while Denver seems to be playing coy, I highly question if Miller finishes the year with the Nuggets.
