NBA Trade Rumors — After trading away Andre Miller, the Denver Nuggets are looking to add a backup point guard, and it seems that Beno Udrih will be their guy. According to multiple insiders, the Miller talks have been holding up the negotiations of a Jordan Hamilton for Beno Udrih swap between the Nuggets and the New York Knicks.

With Iman Shumpert going down with a knee injury, the Knicks certainly need another wing, and Hamilton could be a half-decent option. Similarly, the Nuggets are desperate for a point guard, as Randy Foye has been forced to play the position with Miller, Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson unavailable. Udrih is not exactly a stud but should at least provide the Nuggets with an actual point guard until Lawson returns to action.
