Person with knowledge of deals tells AP that Nuggets trade Miller, Hamilton

A person with knowledge of the details says the Denver Nuggets have traded Andre Miller and Jordan Hamilton in separate deals.

The person, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the moves had not been announced, said Miller was traded to Washington on Thursday in a three-team deal. Denver gets forward Jan Vesely and Philadelphia acquired Eric Maynor and draft picks.

Also, the Nuggets traded Hamilton to Houston for Aaron Brooks, filling Denver's dire need for a point guard.

Ty Lawson (ribs) has been out and Miller had not played for Denver since yelling at coach Brian Shaw during a Jan. 1 game.

The Nuggets got future flexibility in the deals, first reported by the Denver Post, because Vesely and Brooks have expiring contracts.
