Andre Miller is a former NBA player who played 17 seasons for 9 different teams, including the Denver Nuggets. He spent six seasons with the Nuggets and was well respected throughout the league. Miller was known as one of the best game managers during his time in the league.
Fans can expect him to bring his game knowledge and basketball know how to the locker room. This will be a big responsibility with the young players that the Nuggets have in their pipeline. Peyton Watson is likely to spend time in the G-League this season and having someone there to oversee his development like Andre Miller will likely be great for him in the long run.
