When this weekend got kicked off, it looked like Andrew Bynum trade talks would dominate the NBA and that ended up being the case. But while the Cavaliers are mulling offers from teams, other names around the NBA are on the move or being discussed in deals that would lead to such an outcome.
One name is Denver Nuggets guard Andre Miller, a player the team has seemingly given up on truing to work things out with and is actively shopping.
Luke Adams from HoopsRumors speculates that teams who were going to pursue Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, before he was pulled off the trade block, may end up going after Miller who can be had at much less of a price. These teams could include the New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Knicks wanted Lowry but couldn’t agree on the right price to get him, and Miller could fit in nicely if the right price is offered. Minnesota needs some veteran presence in their backcourt and Miller would give them exactly that while the jets seem to be looking to assemble the oldest roster in NBA history.
Initially, when trade rumors surrounding Miller surfaced, the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings were interested in a trade, so they can’t be counted out either. It sounds like Miller will indeed be on the move soon and he has a large market of teams interested in possibly bringing him over.
