Who would have thought a 37-year-old point guard with declining skills coming off a suspension for yelling at his coach would be in such demand. But such is the case for Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller, who seemingly has teams clamoring over the idea of trading for the former Utah product.
There’s no doubt Denver will be moving Miller, it’s just a matter of when.
Some have suggested the Nuggets want to part ways with Miller as soon as possible while others have hinted they’d rather wait until February’s trade deadline in hopes of creating a bidding war, which is understandable considering the amount of teams interested in Miller. One such team are the the New York Knicks, who according to ESPN want to acquire the point guard:
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.
With teams like Sacramento and Golden State (who have tradeable assets) interested in Miller, it’s going to be difficult for the Knicks to squeeze themselves into such a bidding war.
