Former Utah guard Andre Miller has quietly put together solid 15-year NBA career

It's been a long time since Andre Miller led the Utah men's basketball team to the national championship game against Kentucky in 1998 and earned numerous All-America honors the next year as a senior.

In the 15 years since his college career ended, the former Ute guard has quietly compiled a solid NBA resume playing for six different teams, one of which he's played for in two different stints.

Along the way in his pro career, Miller has earned NBA All-Rookie First Team honors and led the league in assists one season, all while starting 935 games to this point. He's also played in 52 playoff games over nine different seasons.

Here's a look back at his NBA career, which includes being traded to a new team recently:

There's nothing better than MILLER TIME!! Classy guy; solid player. Loved watching him play at Utah.

I'm a fan. He's always been one of those undervalued guys who it seems coaches love for consistency, skill and a steady, low-maintenance demeanor. And yet, he's bounced from team to team to team. Kind of a shame, though he's made enough money for him and his children and his children's childre to live comfortably for their lifetimes, so I don't feel too bad for him.

It just seems like from a competitive or "legacy" standpoint, you'd always kind of feel like an afterthought if you were constantly getting traded or allowed to walk away. I wonder how many teams that watched him leave and installed someone with more "upside" in his place eventually regretted it.

As a lifelong BYU fan and Utah resident, I have to say he's represented the state well. Hopefully he's satisfied with what he's done.
