The NBA trade deadline is less than 10 days away, so you know what that means.
It’s that time of year when you start hearing rumors from anonymous sources. This particular report appears to be legit, but it’ll be difficult for Washington to snag the 14-year veteran.
The Wizards, meanwhile, may have to settle for a smaller deal — if they can manage any at all. They’d surely love to upgrade the backup point guard slot after the Eric Maynor flop, and given the front-office connections between Denver and Washington,4 a deal involving the exiled Professor Andre Miller, PhD, would seem to make sense. But the Wizards are just $1 million under the tax line, meaning they’d have to send out significant salary to offer Miller tenure.
It would make sense for both parties because Denver has three quality point guards in Ty Lawson, Andre Miller and Nate Robinson. Whereas John Wall could use a veteran like Miller to learn from.
