The Washington Wizards were looking to make a move at the NBA trade deadline this year and they did exactly that when they were involved in a three-team deal that landed them Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets. Jan Vesely went to Denver in the trade while Eric Maynor and draft picks headed to the Philadelphia 76ers for their involvement in the matter.
Fans were quick to react on Twitter, as the news spread like wildfire throughout Basketball Twitter.
Of course the Wizards trade for Prof. Andre Miller two days after I see them live. That’s not fair

Nuggets trade Andre Miller for Jan Vesley because only having 5 Power Forwards on your roster would be silly.

Andre Miller is a smart pick up for Washington. He’s who I preferred before we landed Blake tbh. Good move.

I like Andre Miller going to the Wizards…veteran PG with playoff experience should help Wall n Beal
