Nuggets reach deal to re-sign Andre Miller

The Denver Nuggets have reached agreement on a three-year contract to re-sign free-agent point guard Andre Miller, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Miller had sought a contract that would pay him an average of $3 million a season.

Miller, 36, averaged 9.7 points and 6.7 assists for the Nuggets last season while primarily backing up Ty Lawson. He has been one of the league's most durable players, appearing in 1,044 of a possible 1,048 games in his 13-year career.

Miller is in his second stint playing for the Nuggets and coach George Karl. He came to the Nuggets before the start of last season in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers.
