The interest became public after Miller’s verbal spat with head coach Brian Shaw, but it appears both Shaw and Miller hugged things out as the team reduced Miller’s two-game suspension and according to Sporting News, the Nuggets aren’t rushing to trade him as a result:
A league source said the team is still “a ways away” from pulling off a trade, and that a deal would probably come closer to the February trade deadline.
Miller, 39, is nearing the end of his NBA career so it’s a bit shocking the Nuggets plan to hang on to him until the deadline, even though it’s just a month away.
One would figure Denver would be more than open to moving the aging veteran but with so many teams in need of point guard help, it’s possible Denver hopes they’ll be able to draw teams into a potential bidding war.
Both Golden State and Sacramento figure to remain interested whenever he’s made available.
