The Denver Nuggets were reportedly hoping to bring back point guard Andre Miller after over a month of deactivation following an incident with head coach Brian Shaw. While Denver was extending a hand, Miller has apparently swatted it away as Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Miller is refusing to rejoin the team and no intentions of ever playing for the Nuggets again.
Embattled point guard Andre Miller has no desire to return to the Denver Nuggets, a source told Yahoo Sports on Saturday.
Sources said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw also has no interest in bringing back Miller and the two have not spoken with one another about a possible return. Miller was suspended two games in January after yelling at Shaw during a game.
The Nuggets are still trying to trade Miller and news that he’s refusing to rejoin the team almost guarantee he’ll be moved at the deadline. The Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors are now all teams to watch in terms of trying to make a deal for Miller.
