Miller meets with Blazers, Knicks officials

LAS VEGAS – Free-agent point guard Andre Miller(notes) has visited with officials from the Portland Trail Blazers and New York Knicks in recent days in Las Vegas, a source close to Miller said on Monday.

Miller flew from Denver to meet with Portland coach Nate McMillan on Saturday, then met with New York coach Mike D’Antoni. He later flew to New York to talk with Knicks president Donnie Walsh.

Miller has yet to receive an offer from either the Blazers or the Knicks, and one source close to him cautioned that a deal "isn't imminent."

Miller, 33, averaged 16.3 points and 6.5 assists last season for the Philadelphia 76ers. He has missed only five games in 11 seasons. The Sixers haven't expressed interest in giving him a long-term contract.

The Blazers, who unsuccessfully tried to sign forwards Hedo Turkoglu(notes) and Paul Millsap(notes), could use a veteran to help steady their young roster. They also have dangled backup point guard Jerryd Bayless(notes) in trade talks, a rival league executive said.

Bayless was scratched from participating with USA Basketball in its upcoming minicamp because of a wrist injury. He was replaced by Washington center JaVale McGee(notes).
