Wizards acquire a point guard in a three-team trade

WASHINGTON — The Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers completed a three-team trade Thursday before the trade deadline WTOP confirms.

The Wizards acquired point guard Andre Miller from Denver while sending Jan Vesely to the Nuggets and point guard Eric Maynor to the 76ers, along with two second- round draft picks.

Miller, 37, has not played since Dec. 30 due to an altercation with Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw. Miller will provide veteran leadership and be a quality backup to John Wall.

Vesely, 23, was drafted by the Wizards with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2011 draft and is averaging 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds a game this year.

Maynor, 26, was signed by the Wizards last summer but the 2009 first-round pick has not much of an impact this season. He is only averaging 2.3 points and 1.7 assists in 23 games this season.

Washington, after a win Wednesday night, is 26-28 and currently in fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
