6 NBA Teams That Should Pursue Andre Miller Trade with Denver Nuggets
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Even if Andre Miller's frustration with his role (or lack thereof) in the Denver Nuggets' rotation has led to him being planted firmly on the trade block, the veteran point guard still has plenty to offer to whichever new team acquires him.

We can start looking ahead to Miller's next stop because, per Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, his exit from Denver is a foregone conclusion:

After a two-game suspension turned into an indefinite exile on Monday, the Nuggets are motivated to move Miller within the next 24 to 48 hours, league sources said. It has become clear to rival executives that Denver is moving quickly on engineering trade scenarios and completing a deal.

The Nuggets have reached the point of trading Miller following the point guard's sideline outburst and a subsequently unproductive meeting between him and head coach Brian Shaw.

Per the Associated Press (via ESPN), Shaw said: "It just came to a boiling point. We made a decision and we're moving forward."

With that in mind, now seems like a good time to look around the league at which teams should make a play for Miller. As a caveat, the short answer is "almost all of them."

Miller is due to make just $5 million this season and he can be bought out for just $2 million next year, per ShamSports.com. Any team acquiring him would get a low-cost professional with years of NBA effectiveness and something to prove—virtually no strings attached.

Instead of pointing out the obvious and saying every team should take a run at him, we'll run down the seven teams that could most use Miller's services.
