Miller's second stint with the Nuggets began after he was traded to Denver in the summer of 2011. For the first time in his career, his points-per-game average dipped under double digits as he came off the bench. After his first two seasons where he averaged near 9.6 points and just over six rebounds per game, his numbers and minutes dropped even further the early part of this season and he was eventually traded.

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.
