Kings offer Marcus Thornton or Jimmer Fredette for Nuggets' Andre Miller

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

The Sacramento Kings have offered three trade options to the Denver Nuggets in the hopes of acquiring point guard Andre Miller.

The Sacramento Kings have thrown three trade scenarios at the wall in hopes one will convince the Denver Nuggets to trade disgruntled point guard Andre MillerCBS Sports' Ken Berger reports that the Kings have offered a combination of shooting guard Marcus Thornton and a second-round pick or point guard Jimmer Fredette and a second-round pick to the Nuggets.

The third trade proposal coming from Sacramento involves big man Jason Thompson, though Berger and his sources were only guessing and did not know specifics of that scenario.

Denver has been seeking a trade partner for Miller since the New Year. Miller verbally attacked Nuggets coach Brian Shaw during a game on Jan. 1, was suspended for two games and is now on paid leave. Miller is averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists per game this year and became upset with Shaw because of a benching.

Thornton is currently starting over the Kings' first-round draft pick, Ben McLemore, and Berger's NBA sources theorize it's because they're hoping to showcase the guard before trading him. Thornton is averaging 8.4 points per game, but in his last three years was a double-digit scorer.

Fredette has averaged 11 minutes per game this year, so his loss would be relatively non-impactful to the Kings.

On the other side of things, the Kings would have immediate use for Miller, who could be paired with current starting point guard Isaiah Thomas. Sacramento lost its point guard depth when it traded Greivis Vasquez to the Toronto Raptors in a deal that made Rudy Gay a King.
