Paul Millsap: Choice to join Nuggets easy, as Hawks never made offer

Paul Millsap: Choice to join Nuggets easy, as Hawks never made offer”

The Nuggets have become players. Let's take a look.

Millsap's arrival in Denver makes the Northwest Division in the Western Conference particularly grueling.

Millsap, 32, is one of the top unrestricted free agents on the market.

His $30 million a season payday he received from the Denver Nuggets will demand him to be a clutch player down the stretch. I thought I meant a bit more than that to [the Hawks]. The minimum contracts of Daniel Ochefu and Sheldon Mac ($2.6 million total) are non-guaranteed. "We're incredibly optimistic and incredibly committed to Paul".

"Atlanta decided to go another direction".

"The city of Atlanta has been unbelievable to me", Millsap said.

After not receiving a contract offer from the Hawks, the veteran NBA forward told the Atlanta Journal Constitution, signing with the Nuggets was "pretty simple". Along with Draymond Green in Golden State, Millsap might be the most versatile power forward defensively in the game today. However, the three signings of big men were all key additions for each team. The Hawks never made him an offer, forcing him to look for work elsewhere.

Korver reached agreement with the Cavaliers on Sunday on a three-year deal worth $22 million, a person with knowledge of the agreement said.

With both Millsap and Dwight Howard on other NBA rosters, the Hawks' transition into build mode has arrived.

But in the end, the Nuggets made things easy for Millsap, who lived in Denver during the first 11 years of his life before moving to Louisiana. "Add that with the (team) scoring capability, you have something really special". To be able to maintain Gallinari's cap hold and sign Millsap, Denver would have to get off Faried's salary now and renounce the rights to restricted free agent Mason Plumlee. The Nuggets had tried to sign or trade for star players for years, and threw up nothing but air balls. The maturation and progression of his game throughout his rookie season shows Prince can make a serious impact for the Atlanta Hawks sooner rather than later. The Hawks opted to do nothing as their best player walked away and joined the Nuggets out West.
