The Washington Wizards, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers completed a three-team trade that will send point guard Andre Miller to the Wizards, reported Thursday.

The Wizards will send forward Jan Vesely to the Nuggets and point guard Eric Maynor to the 76ers, who also will get two second-round draft picks.

Miller hasn't played since he was suspended by the Nuggets on Jan. 2 after an altercation with coach Brian Shaw.

Miller is earning $5 million this season, and his $4.6 million contract for next year is guaranteed for just $2 million. The 16-year veteran averaged 5.9 points and 3.3 assists in 30 games for the Nuggets.

Washington (26-28) is fifth in the Eastern Conference, 2 1/2 games out of the fourth spot.

Vesely, the No. 6 pick in the 2011 draft, has averaged just three points and three rebounds in 33 games for the Wizards.

Maynor, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason by the Wizards, has fallen out of the rotation and averaging 2.3 points per game. He has a player option for $2.1 million next season that the 76ers will assume in exchange for the draft picks.
