General manager Masai Ujiri said Thursday that Miller, an unrestricted free agent who will be entering his 14th season in the NBA, told him he wants to stay in Denver.
”I had a great meeting with Andre Miller a couple of days ago and he told us plain and simple, he wants to come back and he wants to play here,” Ujiri said. ”I think Andre’s comments are more he wants to be respected as a veteran, which we feel he has to be respected as a veteran.”
Which means, showing him the big bucks. Miller’s $7.8 million salary in 2011-12 was tops on the team.
”I think he means that he’s played in the league 13 years and he’s been a starter,” Ujiri said. ”So, I don’t want to go into details there, but I think Andre does not want to be disrespected in terms of, I don’t think it’s his teammates, I think he loved the role that he played, so I think it’s contract. And we’ll figure it out.”
