LOS ANGELES — Andre Miller, who was excused from all team activities for four days, won't be part of the Nuggets for long after he returns.
The Nuggets are actively trying to trade Miller, according to a league source. If accomplished, it would be the second time Denver traded him. He was traded in 2006 in a package that brought Allen Iverson to the Nuggets.
It has been a dicey few days for Miller, who had harsh words for Nuggets coach Brian Shaw during Wednesday's game against Philadelphia. Miller was initially suspended, but then the suspension was rescinded, in part so Miller would be able to continue getting paid during his time off.
Miller has spent all or parts of seven seasons in Denver, in two stints, this latest one starting in 2011, when Portland traded him back to the Nuggets.
He has averaged 12.0 points and 6.7 assists in his career with the Nuggets.

His salary is currently $5M and he's on the books for another seasons after this one... I wonder if Masai's talking to his old buddies about a possible PG swap (if he doesn't want to risk Kyle walking)?
Smart, veteran PG who knows how to run a team and isn't a liability on D. Isn't half the shooter than Kyle is though... still... I've always been a fan of his.
