Denver now with $5M in cap space after the Mike Miller waiver. The $3.5M contract for Miller would have been guaranteed if not waived by July 12. The Nuggets still have a $5.8M free agent hold of Mason Plumlee counting against the cap. Besides the small amount of room, Denver will also have the $4.3M room mid-level exception.
The Denver Nuggets waived Mike Miller on Tuesday. The veteran shooting guard was scheduled to make $3.5 million in 2017, and his salary would have been guaranteed if he had not been waived before Wednesday.
