WASHINGTON – A person familiar with the deal says the Washington Wizards have agreed in principle to acquire disgruntled point guard Andre Miller from the Denver Nuggets in a three-way trade that also involves the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Wizards would give up two seldom-used players — forward Jan Vesely and point guard Eric Maynor. Vesely goes to the Nuggets, while Maynor gets shipped to the 76ers.
Philadelphia would also get two second-round draft picks, one from the Wizards and one from the Nuggets.
The person confirmed the deal Thursday on condition of anonymity because the teams had yet to announce it.
Miller hasn't played since his shouting match with coach Brian Shaw in the waning minutes of a loss to the 76ers on New Year's Day.
