While Andre Miller had been rumored to be interested in chasing a ring this off-season, the veteran PG has reportedly elected to sign a three-year deal with the Denver Nuggets:

Miller, a 14-year NBA veteran, is one of the league's craftiest and most physical players, a 6'2 PG whose carved out a long career despite lacking high-level athleticism or a perimeter jumper.

He'll likely continue backing up Ty Lawson, running Denver's second unit as well as playing on the wings in some of George Karl's small-ball lineups.

Miller, a 36-year old notorious for not staying in tip-top shape, had one of the worst seasons of his career last year, averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 6.7 assists on 44% shooting.

When his contract is up, he will be as old as Jason Kidd, currently the oldest guard in the NBA, is now. Miller has the feel for the game and the passing ability to stay on until he's 40, but he'll need to develop a spot-up 3 point shot, as Kidd did very late in his career.
