Nuggets Have No Plans To Trade Andre Miller

Earlier this afternoon, we passed along comments made this week by Andre Miller, in which the veteran point guard expressed some dissatisfaction with his role in Denver.

"I don't know how much longer they want me here. I definitely would like to contribute more," Miller said, when asked if he wanted to finish his career in Denver. "I’m not just going to sit back and settle in and be a backup and let my career just fade away. I’m competitive in that way."

Despite Miller's suggestion that the Nuggets may be looking to move him, GM Masai Ujiri insists that's not something the team is considering, according to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post.

"Andre is not going anywhere," Ujiri said. "We want to win."

Miller's agent, Andy Miller, also spoke to Hochman and said his client is committed to the Nuggets, and that all is well in Denver. While the 36-year-old might like to play a few more minutes, he hopes to continue contributing to the the team off the bench and to help the Nuggets make a deep playoff run, according to his agent.
