The Denver Nuggets will head to Orlando soon as part of the NBA’s 22-team contingent. They aren’t necessarily a top title contender, but depth and versatility is a strength and Paul Millsap is an underrated piece of the equation.
Millsap missed over a month with a left knee issue earlier this season, and a right ankle issue bothered him before the league shut down. In 44 games (41 starts), he’s averaging 12.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while 48.6 percent from the floor and 44 percent from 3-point range. The league hiatus may benefit him more than any Nuggets player.
Millsap is also set to become a free agent after the season. His big contract days are over, but he should still do well on a multi-year deal. Title-contending teams are sure to be a priority for him
As Millsap heads toward free agency, ideally on the heels of a healthy and productive run in Orlando, these three teams look like ideal landing spots for the veteran power forward.
