How does Miller's contract get traded to the team he retired from?

Oh great typo. Nice.

The T-Wolves had traded Miller and 2 2nd round picks to the Hornets for 1 second round pick back on July 13. That was weird NBA accounting; they needed to clear space to sign Nicolas Batum (which didn't work out, he's gone back to the Blazers.) It looks like the Wolves got those 2nd round picks back in this trade, because the NBA is weird.

Technically, he hasn't retired. He still has a contract, but the likeliest scenario is he gets bought out and probably doesn't return to the Association.

That is correct, but now it's going to be the Suns buying him out. The Hornets picked up Miller('s contract) and the picks in that "clear out space for Batum" deal (yay for cap room), but now that the Timberwolves don't need it, they can sort of hit the reset button. Kinda like that pair of deals with the Red Sox and Pirates about 10 years ago that ended up with Freddy Sanchez going to Pittsburgh, while Jeff Suppan and Scott Sauerbeck went to Boston. (Brandon Lyon and Anastacio Martinez went to Pittsburgh in the deal, but since Lyon was hurt, they both went back to the Red Sox.)

So in the end, here's the deal, courtesy of Hoops Rumors:

Hornets acquire: Robin Lopez (from Suns, via sign-and-trade), Hakim Warrick (from Suns), CASH MONEY
Suns acquire: Wesley Johnson (from Timberwolves), First-round pick (from Timberwolves), Brad Miller (from Hornets)
Timberwolves acquire: Jerome Dyson (from Hornets), Two second-round picks (from Hornets, originally from Timberwolves)

One of the rumors was that the Timberwolves were getting a third second-round pick, but no one's nailed that down yet.

I guess that makes more sense than what I read.


    The deal also sends guard Jerome Dyson and retiring center Brad Miller’s $5.1 million contract from New Orleans to Minnesota, allowing the Timberwolves to clear space under the NBA’s salary cap as they pursue free agents. Minnesota also will receive two second-round draft picks from New Orleans, while the Hornets will receive cash.
