The Sacramento Kings are in need of a point guard. General manager Pete D’alessandro has ties to the Denver Nuggets organization, who suspend Andre Miller for two games on Thursday evening after he and head coach Brian Shaw engaged in an expletive laced shouting match.
A deal seems too logical, right? So logical, in fact, that the Kings reportedly have had dialogue with the Nuggets about a trade – this according to Yahoo Sports:
The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings are intrigued with the possibility of acquiring suspended Denver Nuggets point guard Andre Miller, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Miller, who has family in the Sacramento area is declining in skill at age 38 but would provide solid veteran leadership off the bench and doesn’t need to score to be effective.
There’s no report on who the Nuggets would be interested in acquiring in exchange for Miller (possibly Jimmer Fredette?), but it seems likely the veteran point guard has worn out his welcome in the Mile High City after his most recent blowup.
The former Utah product is due $4,625,000 for the 2014-15 season though the deal is not fully guaranteed.
