The latest buzz regarding Denver's disgruntled point guard in advance of Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline has the Timberwolves high on the list of teams trying to acquire the 36-year-old vet.
With one disclaimer.
Word is Minnesota wants to know it can shed the contract of guard J.J. Barea -- who has one season left on his deal after this one at $4.5 million -- before consenting to trade for Miller.
The safest assumption in Sota, assuming there is such a thing during Trade Deadline Week, is that Barea will be involved in whatever transaction(s) Minnesota manages to complete.
