07:28 AM ET 02.12 | Speculation has the Knicks interested in a bigger deal, and there are teams who may have both the capability and the appetite to make one one. The Wizards, meanwhile, may have to settle for a smaller deal -- if they can manage any at all. They'd surely love to upgrade the backup point guard slot after the Eric Maynor flop, and given the front-office connections between Denver and Washington,4 a deal involving the exiled Professor Andre Miller, PhD, would seem to make sense. But the Wizards are just $1 million under the tax line, meaning they'd have to send out significant salary to offer Miller tenure. Any of these pick-less buyers seeking to add a major player will have to find another form of currency to grease the wheels. The most obvious such device would be players on their rookie contracts.

Here we go again. The Knicks and Nuggets are a tandem joke.

Dumb for Denver not to trade Miller even for a small price. Miller for Udrih would work maybe.

Not sure off the top of my head, but miller has another year , right?
It may not be so easy to move him as he is like 88 years old and is a back up. Not smart to have back up guys on multi year deals

Not smart for Denver to have a backup old man who won't be in a Denver uni. They have to get rid of him. Not smart to keep him around.

Speaking of zoos, did anyone hear about the Copenhagen zoo putting down a healthy 2 year old giraffe to feed their lions?

not disagreeing-
but why would another team want as you say - a backup old man

why would another team want to take that on?

You need a solid backup PG.

Good riddance.

You get a solid backup w/ lots of experience while not having too many injuries. In other words you got a durable and experience PG that knows how to be a PG for a team...

but you have to pay him 4.5 mil.
what team that is 'close' can afford to do that ?

but you need a trading partner

You mean - the lions were so wussed out that they had to be shown how to kill one?
