NBA Trade Rumors: Andre Miller to Kings or Timberwolves


NBA Trade Rumors – Ever since falling out with Denver Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw, Andre Miller has had one foot out the door. He has not played since Dec. 30, and the Nuggets will be moving his contract before the trade deadline. Rumor has it that either the Sacramento Kings or the Minnesota Timberwolves will be providing shelter and a new home to the veteran point guard.

The Kings have been pointed out as a potential destination for Miller before, and the team was reportedly offering either Jimmer Fredette or Marcus Thornton in return. Denver was reportedly not interested at the time, but the Kings seem to be inclined to drive up Thornton’s market value. After being mediocre for most of the season, Thornton has broken out with two excellent performances, scoring 42 and 19 points in Sacramento’s last two losses.

The Timberwolves could also do with a legitimate backup point guard behind Ricky Rubio. Either way, the only thing that is as good as certain at this point is that Miller will be moved by the deadline.
