Miller, 38, has averaged 3.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in just 12.4 minutes per game this season while backing up John Wall. Miller previously played for new Kings coach George Karl in Denver, and Wojnarowski reports Karl advocated for the Kings to acquire him.
Miller was traded to the Wizards last season after butting heads with Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw over playing time. He is in the final season of a three-year, $14.6 million contract.
The Kings hired Karl to replace Ty Corbin last week. They are 18-34 and 13th in the Western Conference, 10 games behind the Phoenix Suns for the final playoff spot.
The 28-year-old Sessions signed a two-year, $4.2 million contract with the Kings before this season. In 36 games this season, he has averaged 5.4 points and 2.7 assists while shooting 34.4 percent from the field and 21.4 percent on threes.
The Wizards are currently fourth in the Eastern Conference with a 33-21 record. They have a half-game lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers for home-court advantage in the playoffs.
