Andre Miller Won’t Commit to Nuggets
Andre Miller didn’t ask to be thrust into the situation he found himself in for the first time in his career, coming off the bench. So yes, it took time to get used to. And yes, he eventually did, reluctantly.
But, maybe, just maybe, he’ll agree to an encore with the Nuggets.
Now that the season has ended, Miller is one of three free agents the Nuggets have to make decisions on this summer, the first normal NBA calendar since 2010. It’s likely the Nuggets will attempt to bring him back after his at-times spectacular playoff series against the Lakers. Miller is the only unrestricted free agent on the roster, so the decision to stay or leave is solely his.
“I’ll keep my options open,” Miller said. “At this point in my career, if I’m going to be a backup, I’m going to be a backup on a championship-caliber team. Obviously, this team is a good team that’s going to get to the playoffs, but the thing is if they are committed to getting to that next level to compete for that championship.”
