Despite reports that Andre Miller worked out for the Nuggets this week, it doesn’t appear that the embattled guard will be returning to the team anytime soon, writes Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. The Nuggets were reportedly attempting to bring back the veteran but the relationship is beyond repair, according to Spears’ source. “The vibe is delusional. It’s a burned bridge. No reconciliation. He’s waiting by the door with his bag already packed. The relationship is irreparable. Under no circumstances does he want to come back to Denver“, the source said. Spears says that Miller hasn’t spoken publicly about the situation out of good will.
Spears also writes that coach Brian Shaw also has no interest in bringing back Miller and the two have not spoken with one another about a possible return. Miller was suspended for two games back in January for yelling at Shaw during a game. Miller has been working out daily at the Nuggets practice facility, but mostly at night, and away from the team. Nuggets GM Tim Connelly has attended some of those workouts, according to Spears.
There have been rumors of potential suitors for Miller, but nothing has materialized yet. The Nuggets may find it difficult to get any value for Miller now, especially if other teams are aware that they have to move the veteran. Last month, Chuck Myron took a look at Miller as a trade candidate. In 30 games this season, Miller has averaged 5.9 PPG, 2.4 RPG, and 3.3 APG.
