Veteran Paul Millsap has been met with a slow-moving market thus far in NBA free agency. While a flurry of moves has been made and plenty of veterans have been scooped up by contending teams, he remains a free agent.
At 36-years old, Millsap is coming to the end of the road for his NBA career. He has seen his minutes per game decrease in four consecutive seasons as the Denver Nuggets began moving in a different direction in their frontcourt.
Despite the decrease in playing time, as he averaged only 20.8 minutes per game, he was still productive. He scored 9.0 points per game with 4.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.6 blocks. While not eye-popping, they are pretty similar to the numbers that he has put up per-36 minutes in his career.
While Millsap has been holding out for a mid-level exception, he would provide excellent value on a veteran’s minimum deal should he not receive the kind of money he is looking for.
The ability to play both frontcourt spots, provide veteran leadership and experience and knock down the occasional 3-pointer are all things that contending teams could use.
