Last season, the Denver Nuggets built their team around the fact that, in Ty Lawson and Andre Miller, they had two point guards who could make sure the team was always playing fast and moving the ball. It appears that the Nuggets will be able to continue to use this strategy. From the Denver Post: “Nuggets sharpshooters (and fans) can rejoice. Assist machine Andre Miller has agreed to re-sign with the Nuggets, two sources said Sunday night. The 36-year-old point guard is arguably coach George Karl’s favorite player because of Miller’s ability to make the proper pass and fuel the offense. The sources confirmed that Miller will sign for three years. Financial terms were undisclosed. Last season, Miller averaged 9.7 points per game and 6.7 assists in 27.4 minutes off the bench, backing up starter Ty Lawson and other times playing alongside him. Miller was instrumental in the Nuggets’ Game 5 playoff win at the Lakers, which staved off elimination, thanks in part to Miller’s 24 points and eight assists.”
