When the Sixers finally got rid of the comically incompetent Billy King, one of the first moves that new GM Ed Stefanski was expected to make was trading point guard Andre Miller. Turns out that pundits had different ideas than Mr. Stefanski.

The new GM in Philly says that despite his recent cap-space saving trade of the popular Kyle Korver, he’s not looking to move the much-maligned point guard.

“The trade we made, we felt it set us up in the summertime to either get a free agent or a possible trade because we’re under the cap,” Stefanski said outside the Sixers’ locker room at KeyArena. “We don’t know who that player is.”

“We’re happy with our team and will see what happens in the summer, but I am not shopping Andre Miller around the league.”

Stefanski then went on to compare ‘Dre to Jason Kidd and Steve Nash in terms of making their teammates better, which is an overstatement to say the least.

Miller, who struggled early in the season but has come on of late (he’s averaging just over 16 points and 6 assists per night), has played the good soldier all season, and to his credit, hasn’t let the incessant trade rumors bother him.
