Nuggets re-sign Andre Miller

The Denver Nuggets re-signed veteran guard Andre Miller on Wednesday.

Terms were not disclosed, but the Denver Post reported earlier in the week that it is a three-year deal.

Miller, 36, averaged 9.7 points and 6.7 assists in 66 games with the Nuggets last season. He has career averages of 14.1 points and 7.2 assists in 1,044 games for Denver, Portland, Philadelphia, the Los Angeles Clippers and Cleveland.

"Andre was great for our team and our young guys last season," said Nuggets executive vice president Masai Ujiri. "Our players and coaches were excited when they heard he was coming back. He provides leadership and consistency and he really fits perfectly in our system."

Also on Wednesday, the Nuggets signed first-round draft pick Evan Fournier. Selected 20th overall, the 19-year-old swingman played the last two seasons for Poitiers of France's Pro A League. He averaged 14.1 points, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals in 2011-12.
