Because head coach Brian Shaw and veteran Andre Miller couldn't reconcile their differences the organization was forced to trade the guard. Upon Miller's return to Denver, Shaw tried to make amends for the way things worked out.
"I told him, for whatever it's worth to you, sorry for everything that's happened the way that it did," the first year head coach absolved. The point guard was reportedly displeased with Shaw's decision in playing time and the disagreement forced the club to suspend Miller for several games.
He did not return to the team after that short period and had to be shipped to Washington on the NBA trading deadline.
Shaw wished Miller – who reportedly felt that he was being portrayed as the villain during the entire situation – good luck and the estranged point guard reiterated the sentiments.
"I don't really remember what he said, but I think he said 'It's no big deal' or something to that effect," Shaw continued of their brief conversation.
Miller had spent seven seasons – over two different stints – with the Nuggets before their ugly divorce. The words may have not resolved anything between the two parties but they have at least made it a point to move on.
