Paul Millsap has officially inked a deal with the Denver Nuggets for 3 years worth 90 million dollars.
This is somewhat a surprise to many as Paul Millsap is the only true star left in Atlanta. The core team that was responsible for the great run of Atlanta a few years ago is now spread out in the league. According to news, the Atlanta Hawks never even attempted to offer Paul Millsap to stay, from the outside, this looks like a bad decision, but we do not know exactly the plan of the Hawks.
Paul Millsap was initially being chased by other teams such as the Suns and the Timberwolves but then, they also pulled out from the race that ultimately made Denver the place to be for the 32-year-old veteran.
Paul Millsap is averaging 18 points, 7 rebounds on 44% field goal shooting.
