The Hawks' Paul Millsap was asked specifically if temperatures have any impact on a player's choice. "It shouldn't," he said with a smile. "I don't know. I've seen it all. I've been in Atlanta, I've been in Utah. Utah is one of the coldest places. To me, it's all about the team, it's all about the development. Those are what I base my decisions on." Newsday

Millsap: “I would welcome him back. We still don’t know the truth as far as everything that’s going on or everything that happened. I try to stay out of it. But we had a great relationship before all of this happened. I’m not going to let one day throw that relationship down the drain. People make mistakes.” NBA.com

Potential candidates had better want to play in the Triangle Offense, because Fisher will continue to run it. And they will have to fully buy in on Anthony - believing that he’ll not just recover from his current knee troubles and probable upcoming surgery but that they'll also be able to win big with him as a teammate. "I’ll base my decision off what I see - where the team is, will I be able to grow with the team, how is the coach, and the community," Millsap, the Atlanta Hawks forward, told me during the Friday player media sessions. "There are a lot of things that factor into it, including who’s building the team and the owner. Yes, those are factors I will look at." NBC New York

“Give me four or five really good players over one superstar. I will take that any day,” Millsap said. “It gives you a lot of comfort. When things aren’t going right and you are having one of those 3-for-10 or 1-for-7 nights, you know somebody else will pick up the slack. That is what a full team does.” Washington Post

He’s made 47-of-129 long balls this season (36.4 percent) after going 31-of-113 as a member of the Utah Jazz – in seven seasons! “I didn’t realize Paul could do this much,” coach Mike Budenholzer said not just of Wednesday but of Millsap’s past 15 or so months. “We thought he was going to be versatile, but I think he’s more versatile. We thought he could extend his range … he’s followed through and done that.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Against Brooklyn, Millsap blocked two shots and recorded a steal. He entered the night No. 12 in the NBA in steals (1.8 per game), and with his somewhat new-found long jumper, Millsap has become more dangerous. “Absolutely,” he said when asked if the threat of his 3-pointer has opened up the rest of his game. “I’m able to pump-fake, and put it on the ground and take guys off the dribble and try to create for my teammates.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution
