The Timberwolves officially announced the signing of veteran guard Andre Miller on Monday. The team did not disclose details of the deal, but Miller — who will be playing for his eighth organization — signed a one-season deal for the veteran minimum.
Miller, 39, should provide a veteran presence for the Wolves backcourt, joining starter Ricky Rubio and rookie Tyus Jones at point guard.
The 6-foot-2 Miller has averaged 12.8 points and 6.7 assists during his 16-year career. Last season he split time between Washington and Sacramento, averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 assists.
Drafted with the eighth overall pick by Cleveland in the 1998 draft out of Utah, Miller ranks first among active players in assists (8,437) and is tied for fifth among active players with 1,265 games played. He is one of eight players in league history to have 16,000 points and 8,000 assists.
