Nuggets swap Jordan Hamilton for Aaron Brooks
The person, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the moves had not been announced, said Miller was traded to Washington on Thursday in a three-team deal. Denver gets forward Jan Vesely and Philadelphia acquired Eric Maynor and draft picks.
Also, the Nuggets traded Hamilton to Houston for Aaron Brooks, filling Denver's dire need for a point guard.
Ty Lawson (ribs) has been out and Miller had not played for Denver since yelling at coach Brian Shaw during a Jan. 1 game.
The Nuggets got future flexibility in the deals, first reported by the Denver Post, because Vesely and Brooks have expiring contracts.
