Report: Nuggets work out dismissed PG Andre Miller
The Denver Nuggets are looking to reconcile with point guard Andre Miller after benching him late last year, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com.
The 15-year veteran reportedly worked out for team officials in New Orleans recently, and the Nuggets are hopeful his relationship with coach Brian Shaw can be repaired.
Miller has not been with the Nuggets since the team’s Dec. 30 game against the Philadelphia 76ers, when he lashed out at Shaw, who chose not to play him that night. Miller’s dismissal ended his streak of 239 consecutive games, and gave him the first DNP-CD of his career.
Some members of the organization were concerned about the 37-year old Miller’s history of weight problems, but reported he has actually lost 12 pounds since leaving the team, according to Berger.
The Nuggets are currently short at the point guard position, with Nate Robinson missing the rest of the season with an ACL tear, and Ty Lawson out at least a week with a fractured rib.
