Nuggets waive veteran guard Mike Miller

Mike Miller

The Denver Nuggets announced on Tuesday that they have waived veteran shooting guard Mike Miller, after he spent the past two seasons with the team.

The development makes the 37-year-old Florida product an unrestricted free agent, and will most likely call it a career after 17 years in the NBA. He has played sparingly for the Nuggets and over the past two years, only averaging 7.9 and 7.6 minutes per game, respectively.

However, his biggest contribution to the franchise is being a mentor to their young guns, as well as a veteran locker room leader to the rest of his teammates. He is credited for the vast improvement in Nikola Jokic’s game, who he took under his wings during his time in The Mile High City.

Miller will mostly be remembered for his superb play with the Miami Heat in the Finals, where he won back-to-back championships, and was a fixture in their rotation.

Should this be the end of a long and fruitful career for Miller, he will go down as one of the better three-point specialists in NBA history, leaving plenty of good memories to his fans.

Let it fly, Mike!
