The Sports Xchange reports the Nuggets acquired from Portland point guard Andre Miller, who had played for Denver from 2003-06, for point guard Raymond Felton. "We're excited to have Andre back," said Nuggets president Josh Kroenke. "He was a vital part of the organization." Most excited was Nuggets coach George Karl, who had coached Miller from when Karl took over in January 2005 until Miller was traded in December 2006. "We had three options (in acquiring a point guard for Felton), and (Karl) kept telling us, 'Bring back Andre Miller, Andre Miller,' " said Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri. "He loves Andre Miller." The Nuggets felt they couldn't retain Felton, whom they picked up last February from New York, because he wasn't comfortable coming off the bench behind starting point guard Ty Lawson. But Nuggets officials say Miller has indicated he would have no problem being a reserve.
