Miller spent two seasons with the Nuggets, taking on more of a mentorship role than that of a major player on the court.
He only saw the floor in 67 games with Denver, averaging just 1.4 points per game in that time.
However, as a two-time NBA champion on a roster full of young players, Miller was valued in the clubhouse as a leader on and off the court.
By waiving Miller, Denver saves $3.5 million that the team would have had to pay him in the upcoming season.
Known around the league for his 3-point shooting, the 37-year-old Miller had his best years with the Memphis Grizzlies in the mid 2000's. There, he averaged up to 18.5 points per game in his highest-scoring season in '06-'07.
He then helped the Miami Heat win back-to-back NBA titles in 2011-12 and 2012-13, serving as a very reliable spot-up shooter in both postseason runs.
