The Nuggets have to move Andre Miller. They've signaled their willingness to just buy him out if it comes to that, but to prevent him signing with Miami or the Clippers instead, a few teams are pursuing him. The latest is Washington, who "moved ahead" of the Timberwolves, according to reports. The Wizards are looking to deal off some flotsam for the veteran, including Jan Vesely and Eric Maynor.

Miller fits well in Washington and Vesely is a project who has shown some signs of life this year. He's still a long way from being useful, but the Nuggets' issues with bigs have been so problematic it's worth taking a flier on him. The Wizards get a reliable, veteran point guard to help with their playoff push and give them a spark offensively off the bench. Maynor had a tremendous first two seasons but hasn't been the same since an ACL surgery.
