It has been a tough year for both the Denver Nuggets and Andre Miller.
The Nuggets have taken a step back in the Western Conference. As for Miller? Well, he’s not even playing.
Miller has seemingly become an afterthought in Denver and attempts to trade for him have been futile. However, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, that could be changing.
The Nuggets, who stumbled into the break losing four straight road games by a combined 110 points, are looking to revive trade talks for point guard Andre Miller, who hasn’t played since Dec. 30. The Sixers are one team that could absorb his $5 million salary, but Denver would prefer to find a team that needs Miller for a playoff push and thus would be willing to give up an asset. With an underachieving team and payroll that is clogged up for the next two seasons, the Nuggets are expected to be active at the deadline. One person in contact with Denver officials said everyone on the roster is up for trade discussion except Ty Lawson.
Miller averaged 5.9 points, 3.3 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per game through 30 games this season.
