Andre Miller Inks One-Year Deal With Minnesota

by July 30, 2015

According to Andre Miller’s agent, Andy Miller, the free agent guard has come to terms on a one-year contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Miller, 39, is heading into his 17th year in the NBA and holds career averages of 12.8 points and 6.7 assists with seven different teams.

The wily vet was traded from Washington to Sacramento last season, putting up 4.4 points and 3.5 assists in 81 games.

Per the AP:

Adding the 39-year-old Miller gives the young Wolves a quality, veteran point guard to join a rotation featuring starter Ricky Rubio and rookie backup Tyus Jones. Miller visited the Wolves on Wednesday, met with coach Flip Saunders, GM Milt Newton and several team officials and toured the team’s new practice facility. Hours later, he agreed to terms on a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum.


“He’s very excited about the opportunity,” Andy Miller said. “He was sold on the direction of the team and the veteran leadership he could provide to a promising young roster. He felt it was a good fit for him.”


Miller is also one of the game’s great lob passers, and will have athletic young players like Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine, Shabazz Muhammad and Karl-Anthony Towns on the receiving end in Minnesota. […] “He likes to throw the ball up at the rim and they have a lot of guys who can go get it,” Andy Miller said. “It will be an easy transition for him to a very athletic team.”
