Paul Millsap Agrees to 3 Year $90 Million Deal With Denver Nuggets

3 min read

NBA free agency continues and today it’s being reported that Paul Millsap has agreed to a 3 year deal with the Denver Nuggets worth $90 million. Millsap played the past four seasons with the Atlanta Hawks and has been an All-star level player each year. The Hawks had the option to sign Millsap but declined to offer him a contract.

The Atlanta Hawks who traded Dwight Howard a couple weeks ago, appear to be moving in a different direction with their franchise. The two cornerstone pieces to their ball club from this past season are now gone, and you can officially say that the Hawks are in rebuilding mode. By eliminating the contracts of Millsap and Howard, it appears that the Hawks are all about trimming their overall salary of the roster.

Paul Millsap’s Consistency

Despite being 32 years old, Millsap has been the epitome of consistency the past few years. He averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists last season and played in 69 of the 82 games. In fact, if we examine his playing record, you’ll notice that Millsap has never missed more than 15 games the past four seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.

It will be interesting to see how he fits into the Denver Nuggets rotation and how his presence can improve the team that won 40 games last season and was only 1 game off from being a playoff team. With the majority of the team’s core expected to return, this move should push Denver into potential playoff position. It’s a costly financial move for the Denver Nuggets, but it should definitely make them more competitive in the Western Conference.
