The way out of Denver for point guard Andre Miller might be more clear hours from the trade deadline. Both USA Today's Sam Amick and CBS Sports' Ken Berger report that the Washington Wizards and Minnesota Timberwolves are the two likely landing spots for the disgruntled point guard.
If Miller isn't traded, Sporting News' Sean Deveney reports that other teams expect the Nuggets to buy him out.
Minnesota jumped into the fray a few days before the Feb. 20 deadline.
ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the Timberwolves would hope that any trade for Miller would send backup point guard J.J. Barea the other way. He has a $4.5 million contract that runs through next season, but the Nuggets might be OK with that, especially in the present. They have been running shooting guard Randy Foye out as the starting point guard with Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson injured.
Miller hasn't played since Dec. 30 after publicly clashing with coach Brian Shaw. He was dismissed from the team and has since been on the trading block.
