SEPTEMBER 22: The Nuggets have officially announced the hiring of Miller in a press release.
AUGUST 31: Former NBA point guard Andre Miller is finalizing a contract with the Nuggets to become the new head coach of their G League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Gold, sources tell Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
As Wojnarowski notes, Miller will replace another former NBA player, Jason Terry, as the Gold’s head coach. Terry is reportedly joining the Jazz as an assistant coach.
A 17-year NBA veteran, Miller played parts of seven seasons with the Nuggets. He ranks 12th on the list of all-time assists leaders, per Basketball-Reference, and last played in 2015/16 with the Spurs.
Miller, 46, led the league in assists (10.9 APG) back in ’01/02 with the Cavaliers. In 1304 regular season games (30.9 MPG), he averaged 12.5 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 6.5 APG and 1.2 SPG while shooting 46.1% from the floor and 80.7% from the line (his range didn’t extend to the three-point line, as he averaged less than one attempt per night and shot just 21.7% from deep).
