WASHINGTON (AP) — The Washington Wizards will keep Andre Miller for another season.
Miller’s agent, Andy Miller, said Saturday that he’s been officially notified by the Wizards that the team will guarantee the veteran guard’s contract for $4.6 million in 2014-15.
The 38-year-old Miller was acquired from the Denver Nuggets in a trade-deadline deal in February. He immediately filled a longstanding need for a reliable point guard behind John Wall, averaging 3.8 points and 3.5 assists in 28 games as the Wizards made the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
The Wizards had to decide this weekend whether to guarantee the deal or allow Miller to become a free agent.
