Wizards Acquire Andre Miller In Three-Team Deal

The Wizards have acquired disgruntled Nuggets guard Andre Miller in a three-team trade involving the Sixers.  Washington gets Miller, the Nuggets receive  Jan Vesely, and Philly receives  Eric Maynor plus two second-round picks.  The Sixers will receive the Nuggets’ 2016 second-round pick and the Pelicans’ 2015 second-round selection.NBA: Miami Heat at Denver Nuggets

Miller, 37, is earning a $5MM salary and makes $4.625MM next year in the final year of his deal, but that’s only partially guaranteed for $2MM as long as he’s waived before July.  Before his clash with Denver coach Brian ShawMiller was averaging 5.9 PPG and 3.3 APG in 19 minutes per contest.  Heading into this season, Miller boasted career averages of 13.8 PPG and 7.1 APG in 33.4 minutes per game.

Maynor, the former VCU hero, now joins his fifth team in four years.  Washington inked the guard to a two-year deal worth the bi-annual exception with a player option for year two over the summer.

Vesely, the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 draft, has averaged just 3.5 PPG and 3.4 RPG over the course of his NBA career.  Washington declined its $4.2MM option on the big man for the 2014/15 season so he’ll be a free agent after the season is through.

The future-minded 76ers now have a whopping nine second round picks in the second round of this year’s draft.

Nothing. They’re taking Eric Maynor’s contract and getting the 2 picks for it.

It would be even cooler if they had nine second-round picks in the first round.

So much for Andre Miller going to the Knicks. I wonder if we can still make a move even with Shumpert’s recent injury
