Report: Spurs signing Andre Miller

Andre Miller took a risk by accepting a buyout from the Timberwolves.

As part of the buyout process, Minnesota had to waive Miller. Because he was on a minimum contract, any team with a roster vacancy could’ve claimed him.

But Miller’s agent scared off any potential claimers, and the veteran point guard cleared waivers.

He won’t remain a free agent for long.

Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports:

Free-agent guard Andre Miller has reached an agreement to sign with the San Antonio Spurs for the remainder of the season, league sources told The Vertical.

The Spurs have a full roster of 15 players, so they’ll have to waive someone to sign Miller. Miller figures to supplant Ray McCallum as San Antonio’s third point guard, so McCallum is a possibility. Matt Bonner and Rasual Butler (who could get bumped on the depth chart if the Spurs also sign Kevin Martin) are also candidates to go.

More than Miller makes the Spurs better, he makes them more stable. At 39, Miller’s production has slipped, but his high basketball intelligence makes him an asset.

He should fit well in San Antonio.
