It has been a rough seven days for Denver Nuggets veteran point guard Andre Miller. During an eight-game losing streak, frustration and anger started to show in the Nuggets players. Millers, a 15-year veteran, was not able to keep his cool and had a heated discussion with rookie head coach Brian Shaw. Shaw did the right thing and decided to suspend Miller for two games. Drama over, right? Wrong. The Nuggets front office now wants nothing to do with Miller–they have suspended him from all team-related activities and publicly put him on the trade block. Miller could be a valuable trade piece as he is only due $5 million this year and a non-guaranteed $4.6 million next year. Miller is averaging a career-low 19 minutes per game to go along with 5.9 points and 3.3 assists. What are the teams interested in him?

1. Golden State Warriors

Quick, guess the three players listed as point guards on the Warriors roster. Stephen Curry, of course. The others? Try Nemanja Nedovic and Toney Douglas. So yeah, they have no depth. Additionally with Curry’s ankle problems it would be best to have a viable backup if he goes down. Miller would add experience to a roster that hopes to make a deep playoff run.  Additionally The Warriors high-tempo paced offense suits Miller well. While he is getting up there in age, Andre is still good for 20 to 25 solid minutes off the bench.

2. Sacramento Kings

The Kings are reportedly the favorites in the Andre Miller sweepstakes. Sacramento’s front office has been busy and don’t be shocked if they make another move. I mean, let’s be honest, the Kings are going nowhere this year.
