Sacramento Kings Reportedly Want to Trade for Andre Miller

With Andre Miller’s days in Denver clearly numbered, the veteran guard is drawing interest from a few teams around the L. The Sacramento Kings have reportedly offered to trade for Miller. Per CBS Sports:

The Kings have offered Marcus Thornton and a future second-round pick as the framework of a deal for Miller, and have presented a package including Jimmer Fredette and a future second as an alternative, two people familiar with the scenarios said Wednesday. Those people familiar with the terms of those offers did not know the third scenario presented by Sacramento, but executives gathered here for the D-League Showcase surmised that it likely involves forward Jason Thompson.

Executives scouting the development league event suspect that the Kings are now showcasing Thornton, who has moved ahead of first-round pick Ben McLemore in Sacramento’s starting lineup. The Kings would have to furnish another player in a potential deal involving Fredette to make the trade work under NBA rules.

The Nuggets suspended Miller two games after the 37-year-old point guard confronted coach Brian Shaw over his benching in a 114-102 loss to Philadelphia on Jan. 1. The team subsequently lifted the suspension but excused Miller from team activities.

    This would be a great move, maybe Isaiah Thomas could learn a thing or two about sharing the rock.

    What’s Isaiah averaging this year in assists again?

    How about for the games this year as a starter?

    6.2 for the season. Prolly more like 8–10 since he got the starting job. Too lazy to figure it out.

    I.t is always hated on count how many times he passes the ball and they miss the shot. I know it’s hard to comprehend but assist only work if the guy receiving the ball makes a shot an judging by our team percentage minus I.T, an cuz since gay was just got to sacramento.. The assist he does average r pretty high.. Name one point guard with allot of assist on a poor shooting team, I’ll wait….

    So then I must ask; At what number of assists per game does it take for a PG to be considered of the “sharing the rock” caliber?
