Report: Kings Offer Thornton or Fredette for Andre Miller

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

Details begin to emerge on what exactly the Kings are willing to give to acquire Andre Miller.

The Kings interest in Denver guard Andre Miller is well known, and now Ken Berger reports that the Kings are offering at least three packages to Denver for his services.

From Ken Berger:

The Kings have offered Marcus Thornton and a future second-round pick as the framework of a deal for Miller, and have presented a package including Jimmer Fredette and a future second as an alternative, two people familiar with the scenarios said Wednesday. Those people familiar with the terms of those offers did not know the third scenario presented by Sacramento, but executives gathered here for the D-League Showcase surmised that it likely involves forward Jason Thompson.

In the last article we wrote regarding the Kings and Andre Miller, I surmised that there were three likely trade scenarios and stand by it. These are the scenarios (disregarding future second rounders):

1. Travis Outlaw and Jimmer Fredette for Miller - The Kings need to add salary if they trade Jimmer, and because they can't trade Acy or Gray in combination with another player, the only possible candidate is Outlaw.

2. Marcus Thornton for Miller and Anthony Randolph - We would need to get something back from Denver to satisfy salary differences.  There are several Nuggets that could fit here but I think the Nuggets would be most willing to part with Randolph.

3. Jason Thompson for Miller straight up - Salaries match.  Nuggets take on more long term salary but get a quality rotation big whose contract isn't too crazy.

We'll see if the Nuggets bite on any of these offers, or if they search for another deal from someone else.
