NBA trade rumors: Timberwolves interested in Andre Miller, per report

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The exiled veteran point guard could find a new home soon.

Andre Miller hasn't played for the Denver Nuggets since Dec. 30, but the veteran point guard is still drawing interest ahead of the trade deadline. The Timberwolves are looking at Miller if guard J.J Barea is also moved, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Yahoo! reported earlier that Barea and Chase Budinger are names involved in the early stages of trade talks with the Memphis Grizzlies, who could send Tayshaun Prince and/or Tony Allen to the Wolves.

The 37-year-old Miller reportedly has an "irreparable" relationship with Nuggets coach Brian Shaw. Miller has not played for the Nuggets since cursing out the coach after not playing on Jan. 1 against the 76ers. Teams looking for help at point guard have a reason to like Miller, who appeared in all 82 games for Denver last season. Miller averaged 9.6 points and 5.9 assists in 26.2 minutes per game.

The Timberwolves already have a starter at point guard in Ricky Rubio, but the young Spaniard has struggled to score, averaging just 8.9 points on 36.1 percent shooting this season.
