Andre Miller to Kings rumors not going away

New, comments

Another report surfaced that the Kings could trade for Miller by the All-Star break.

One guy the Kings have been supposedly after most of the season is disgruntled Nuggets Point Guard Andre Miller. Miller had a falling out with Brian Shaw back in December and has not played since Dec. 30th. Back on Jan. 8th, there was a report that the Kings were offering Marcus Thornton, Jimmer Fredette or possibly Jason Thompson for Miller, but nothing came of it as Denver waited for better offers, offers that as of yet have not come.

Yesterday, Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 in Minnesota tweeted this:

That seems to indicate the Kings interest in Miller has not yet waned. Jimmer Fredette has been playing better as of late, but still shows the most promise as a scorer rather than as a distributor.

Since the Rudy Gay trade, the Kings sit at 13 players, so the Kings can't send out more players than they receive in any deal. Jason Thompson is the only (available) King that could be traded for Miller straight up. If Thornton or Jimmer are involved, the trade would have to include more than just Andre Miller (and in Jimmer's case, more from the Kings).

The trade deadline is just a month away, and All-Star break is even sooner than that, so we'll see if there is any truth to this latest rumor sooner rather than later.
