Nuggets Sign Mike Miller

10:05pm: The signing is official, the team announced.

4:51pm: Miller and the Nuggets have agreed to a one-year deal, Christopher Dempsey of The Denver Post reports (via Twitter).

WEDNESDAY, 3:55pm: Miller is already in Denver in anticipation of signing a deal once he clears waivers today, Stein tweets.

MONDAY, 8:22pm: The Nuggets have emerged as the strong favorites to sign veteran guard Mike Miller when he clears waivers on Wednesday, league sources told’s Marc Stein. Miller, who was waived Monday by the Trail Blazers, is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Nuggets barring any late snags, Stein adds.

Miller was scheduled to make $2.8MM in the final year of his contract before he reached the buyout agreement with Portland. The move was expected when Miller was acquired by the Blazers from the Cavaliers in July.

How much playing time Miller can carve out with the Nuggets is a major question mark. Denver has four other shooting guards on its current roster — Randy Foye, Gary Harris, Will Barton and Nick Johnson. The Nuggets are also loaded at small forward, with Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler sharing minutes at that spot. However, Miller’s veteran leadership could be a bonus on a team striving to make the playoffs in the deep Western Conference.

    I don’t get this signing for either side. I would think he would want to play for a contender and do the Nuggets think they’re one?

    Maybe no one else would give Miller a shot, and this is his way of staying in the league in hopes of being traded by the deadline? Otherwise, you’re right, it makes no sense for him to be in Denver.

    I think the Nuggets have talked themselves into believing they can make the playoffs this season. For Miller, this seems like an issue of playing time. Denver is relatively thin on the wing.

      Whomever talked them into thinking they can make the playoffs in this conference, please come negotiate my next work contract.
