Report: Sacramento Kings Have Offered Marcus Thornton Or Jimmer Fredette for Andre Miller

The Sacramento Kings have been one of the most active teams on the trade market and now the Kings have been reported to be at it again.

According to CBS Sports Ken Berger, the Sacramento Kings have made two separate offers for the Denver’s Nuggets 37-year-old veteran point guard, Andre Miller.

The offers include either Marcus Thornton or Jimmer Fredette plus a future second-round pick.

The Kings undoubtedly have needed help off the bench since Isaiah Thomas was promoted as the starting point guard for the Kings, so it is understandable that the Kings would want to go after a point guard like Andre Miller to come in and provide leadership off the bench.

One of Miller’s greatest strengths is his ability to set up other players on the floor and has proven to make other players better when playing on the floor with Miller.  So that would help players like a Ben McLemore to set up and know someone is looking to pass to the open man. Although Isaiah has been having a great season and has been passing the ball more often and efficiently, Thomas is still a shoot-first point guard and having a guy like Miller would be the complete opposite.

Will this trade happen?  Well only time will tell, but Andre Miller is on the block and this is the second time that the Kings have been linked to the veteran this year and now a offer has reportedly been made.

If Kings fans are hoping for a trade to happen and they were to choose which the Nuggets should pick; the fans should hope that the Nuggets decide they would want Thornton. If the Nuggets would want Thornton, that would be great for the Kings to relieve themselves of Marcus Thornton’s contract, which would give the Kings more cap space for this upcoming free agent market at the end of the season.
