Sacramento has made its first trade of the season and it's a bit of a reunion. Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Kings have traded Ramon Sessions to Washington for Andre Miller. Miller was a key cog in George Karl's Denver Nuggets teams.
Miller is 38 years old, in his 16th NBA season and in the last year of his contract. He's been averaging just 12.4 minutes a game with Washington, playing behind John Wall. With this trade, the Kings get a veteran backup PG and get out of Ramon Sessions contract for 2015-16. This move should theoretically strengthen our bench, even if it's just addition by subtraction given how poorly Sessions has played this year in Sacramento.
At this time it remains to be seen if anybody else is involved in the trade. We will provide updates if there are.
