Denver pursued Miller aggressively in free agency a year ago, before Miller signed a deal with the Cavs, as Charania points out. Denver has 14 guaranteed contracts as it begins training camp this week. Also of note, the Nuggets have two open spots beneath the preseason roster limit of 20.
The Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavs were thought to be interested in Miller when he was acquired by the Blazers and was reportedly seeking the buyout. Miller is coming off his worst season and only played 13.5 minutes per game in 52 appearances.
