I'm calling Andre Miller to the Kings by the deadline. Petey D knows Andre from time in Denver too.— Akis Yerocostas (@Aykis16) January 2, 2014

Miller makes $5 million this season and is on the books for $4.6 million in 2014-15. Only $2 million of that is guaranteed, however; Miller can be waived by the end of June, per ShamSports.
