Whether this interest will bring a trade to fruition or not remains to be seen. Even a cursory glance over the Wizards’ roster makes it seem unlikely that Denver could find a satisfactory deal without the involvement of a third team.
On the bright side, however, at the very least it can now be said that tangible interest in Miller has surfaced, and this could potentially — even if only minimally — help to buoy Andre’s trade value.
It’s been over a month since his dispute with Brian Shaw and the coaching staff rendered him persona non grata in the Nuggets organization. And with Nate Robinson out for the season, and Ty Lawson most likely out for longer than the team is letting on (caveat: that’s speculation on the part of your friendly RMC writer who fractured his rib last year), Denver appears likely to be a team without a point guard for at least a few weeks. Clearing Dre’s roster spot has now been elevated to an even more urgent concern for Tim Connelly and Josh Kroenke.
