The Wizards reportedly are sending forward Jan Vesely to Denver and guard Eric Maynor to the 76ers. Philadelphia also picks up a pair of second-round draft picks.
Miller has not played since being suspended by the team Jan. 2 following an incident with coach Brian Shaw. The 37-year-old is averaging 5.9 points and 3.3 assists in 19.0 minutes over 30 games.
Vesely, 23, is averaging 3.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.2 minutes over 33 games. The 7-footer was the sixth overall pick by the Wizards in 2011.
Maynor, 26, scores 2.3 points per game in limited action.
— The Bobcats acquired guards Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour from the Bucks in exchange for Ramon Sessions and Jeff Adrien, according to reports.
The Bobcats were said to have been pursuing Neal for some time while dangling Sessions, but Ridnour needed to be included to make the money work.
Neal, 29, is averaging 10.0 points in 20.2 minutes over 30 games this season. He was signed in the offseason after three years with the Spurs but has been unable to cement a spot in Milwaukee’s rotation. Ridnour, 33, averages 5.7 points and 3.4 assists in 21.2 minutes over 36 games for the league-worst Bucks.
The 27-year-old Sessions, in his seventh NBA season, is averaging 10.5 points and 3.7 assists in 23.7 minutes over 55 games.
Adrien, 28, from Brookline and UConn, is averaging 2.3 points in limited action.
Mason, who averaged 3.0 points in 25 games, is expected to be waived by the Kings.
