The Nuggets are on the verge of finding a trade partner for their disgruntled point guard.

As Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting, the Nuggets and Wizards are in serious talks to send point guard Andre Miller to the Washington Wizards in exchange for point guard Eric Maynor and power forward Jan Vesely.

But we're not done yet, Marc Spears is also reporting the Nuggets are looking to send Maynor to a third team in a deal, perhaps to avoid paying his $2.1 million player option for the 2014-15 season.

Vesely is on the last year of his rookie contract that is paying him $3.3 million. Vesely's deal will be an expiring one as the Wizards did not extend his option for a qualifying offer.

We'll update the site as things fall into place, but Woj is now reporting the deal is "close". This is happening people.
