The Nuggets are hiring former NBA point guard Andre Miller as head coach of the Grand Rapids Gold of the G League, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Andre Miller

Miller, 46, was selected by the Cavaliers with the No. 8 overall pick in the 1999 NBA Draft, spending the first three seasons of his career in Cleveland. As Wojnarowski noted, he also spent six years with the Nuggets (2003-06, and 2011-14).

Along with those two, Miller played for the Clippers, 76ers, Trail Blazers, Wizards, Kings, Timberwolves and Spurs. During his 17-year career, he missed just three games due to injury. 

He also holds the distinction of being the only player in NBA history to compile at least 16,000 career points, 8,000 assists and 1,500 steals without ever making an All-Star team.

The Gold began as the Anaheim Arsenal in 2006, eventually moving to Springfield, Mass., and then Grand Rapids. They first served as the G League affiliate of the Pistons.

Miller will replace Jason Terry, who left to become an assistant with Will Hardy and the Jazz.
