The Washington Wizards have picked up Andre Miller's 2014-15 option.
The team option is for $4.6 million this season and will allow the Wizards to retain the veteran to back up John Wall. Miller averaged 14.6 minutes with Washington after coming over in a trade from the Nuggets on February 20, but the plan is to increase his minutes this season in order to keep John Wall fresh. The 38-year-old only averaged 3.8 points and 3.5 assists with Washington last season, however, so his 2014-15 value to fantasy owners won't match his value to the Wizards. Jul 17 - 9:23 AM

The Wizards notified Andre Miller on Friday that he will be retained via the $4.6 million option on his contract for the 2014-15 season.

This was an expected move as the 38-year-old veteran has embraced his mentor role with John Wall, and he can still serve as a solid backup point guard. However, with regards to fantasy appeal, this is a move that will benefit the Wizards squad much more than a fantasy team as Miller averaged just 3.8 points and 3.5 assists in 15 minutes off the bench for Washington.

The Wizards are "leaning toward" picking up Andre Miller's $4.6 million team option next season, according to beat writer Michael Lee.

Miller's contract is only guaranteed for $2 million but the Wizards must decide by Saturday whether to keep him or waive him. He proved to be a valuable asset for Washington last season, particularly in the playoffs when his steady leadership provided a solid counter-punch when John Wall was on the bench. Just don't expect fantasy value from the 38-year-old veteran, who attempted 0.1 threes per game with the Wizards last season.

Andre Miller opened up in a recent interview as to what went wrong between him and Nuggets coach Brian Shaw.

"For everybody on the team to get in the game and the team is losing and I’m over there sitting down and didn’t get a chance to contribute, that’s what I was upset about. That’s what I took personal," said Miller. Miller will make his first return to Denver on Sunday following the ugly divorce, however, now just a backup point guard averaging 14 minutes a game, he has absolutely no fantasy appeal.
Mar 23 - 10:33 AM

Andre Miller played 16 minutes off the bench and hit 1-of-3 shots for five points, three rebounds and three assists in his Wizards debut on Saturday.

They just want him to give them 20 solid minutes a night while backing up John Wall, so there's no reason to think he'll do much in terms of fantasy value with the Wizards.

Andre Miller will make his Wizards debut on Saturday against the Pelicans.

It will be his first game of 2014 after a falling out with former coach Brian Shaw. Miller is likely just going to be a veteran presence on the team and it would be a surprise to see him match his season average of 19.0 minutes per game.
Feb 21 - 4:07 PM

Andre Miller was traded to the Wizards in a three-team deal on Thursday.

The Nuggets will receive Jan Vesely and the Sixers get Eric Mayor and two second-round picks. Miller and former coach Brian Shaw had a falling out earlier this year after the coach gave him a DNP-CD and the team has been trying to deal him since. He'll act more of a mentor than anything and has very little fantasy value.
Feb 20 - 1:06 PM

The Wizards and Nuggets are in serious talks in a deal involving Andre Miller for Eric Maynor and Jan Vesely.

It's hard to imagine teams being so drawn to Miller after he quit on his team, but the Wizards really need a backup point guard with Eric Maynor not working out. It sounds like this this deal could go down, but there's no reason to add Miller in any format.
Feb 20 - 12:12 PM

The Timberwolves are reportedly interested in Andre Miller, according to ESPN.com.

The interest is contingent on J.J. Barea getting shipped at the deadline. The Wolves have been reportedly been trying to deal Barea since all the way back to the summer, so it's still a bit unlikely they can get anything done.
Feb 18 - 12:39 AM

Andre Miller has no desire to return to the Denver Nuggets, a source told Yahoo Sports on Saturday.

The Nuggets were attempting to mend the relationship with their veteran point guard, but the relationship is reportedly beyond repair. Miller wants nothing to do with the Nuggets organization, which makes a trade by the February 20 deadline more likely. Wherever Miller lands, he will be in a backup point guard role, and it will be difficult for him to muster much fantasy value.
Feb 16 - 10:09 AM

The Nuggets recently held a workout with banished PG Andre Miller and they may decide to have him rejoin the team, according to CBS Sports.

Miller argued with coach Brian Shaw during a game on Dec. 30 and hasn't played since. The Nuggets failed to find a suitable trade for their disgruntled veteran despite reported interest from the Wizards and Kings, and their move to work out Miller isn't a big surprise with Nate Robinson (ACL surgery) out for the season. Denver also reportedly has interest in D-League PG Pierre Jackson, however, so it seems they're keeping their options open.

According to ESPN, the Wizards covet Andre Miller.

Eric Maynor has fallen out of the rotation, leaving Garrett Temple to back up John Wall. The playoff-contending Wiz are looking for an upgrade and some veteran leadership at that spot, something they can find in Miller. The 37-year-old has been away from the Nuggets ever since an ugly sideline spat with coach Brian Shaw over minutes in late December, meaning a deal should be easy. But according to Marc Stein, the two sides have been unable to find a match for Miller's $5 million salary so far.
Feb 11 - 11:23 AM

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said that Andre Miller has been excused from the team and that it's on him to reestablish communication.

"If there’s any reaching out that needs to be done, the reaching out has to come from him," Shaw said. "At this point, we’re still trying to evaluate the situation. The guys that are here are going to be our concern. It’s something I’ve completely taken myself out of. Whatever happens will be dealt with between him, his agent and the front office." It doesn't sound like these two will be swapping Christmas cards anytime soon, and Miller can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Feb 3 - 9:21 PM

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw will consider returning Andre Miller to the lineup on Friday.

Nate Robinson (knee) has been ruled out and Ty Lawson (shoulder) is questionable, so it makes sense for Denver to at least think about dusting off their disgruntled veteran PG. Miller hasn't so much as spoken with Shaw since their confrontation on Jan. 1, which led to Miller's being sent away from the team and unsuccessfully shopped around in trade talks. Even if he does return to Shaw's good graces, Miller isn't a fantasy option.
Jan 30 - 4:24 PM

Andre Miller could return to the Nuggets lineup soon.

The Nuggets have likely exhausted their possible trade partners and look to have come up empty. Miller and coach Brian Shaw could patch things up. "I'm willing to coach anybody on our roster that's willing to play and do what the best thing is for the team, whatever role that is," Shaw said. The Nuggets are 4-0 without Miller, so Shaw might be even less inclined to play the veteran point guard.
