HoopsHype Paul Millsap rumors


January 19, 2015 Updates

Though the Hawks were interested in a longer deal (Millsap wanted chance to re-up for one more big deal at age 30), neither side was locked in long term if it didn't work out. Under Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, Millsap and the Hawks are a perfect fit, and they will try to extend the partnership, especially with Atlanta looking at a deep postseason run. They deserve each other for at least two more seasons. USA Today Sports

Like Millsap, Korver recalls his time in a Jazz uniform fondly, and said he promotes the Utah team whenever given the opportunity. "I am a strong defender of Salt Lake City in the NBA," he said. "Whenever the Jazz come up, I always let everybody know this is a great place. I've got a lot of friends here, a lot of great memories, and we had some really great times playing here." Deseret News

Two starters, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll, will be free agents at the end of the season. How important would be for the team to keep those guys? Kent Bazemore: I think the way we're playing, how we finish out the season will speak volumes for any free agents we have coming up. The chemistry is great, we are all familiar with each other. I think it'll work out. HoopsHype

They are back together this year. “I think it is so unique because Paul is a four but at times he plays like a three,” Horford said. “He can face-up. He can shoot the 3(-pointer) real well. He just knows how to play. He’s a really smart player. He’s efficient. The contrast really causes people problems. I’m starting to get more comfortable playing with him, finding my spots when he is making moves or vise versa. If I have the ball, I’m looking for him. It’s a process. We didn’t get to play much last season. We are still building that chemistry.” Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Knicks will have plenty of cap space and one edge in coach Derek Fisher being a former teammate of Millsap’s with the Jazz in 2006-07. ”There’s always some potential here [in Atlanta] for sure,’’ Millsap told The Post before the Hawks swept the home-and-home Monday. “But I’m trying not to think about it, trying to put it as far in the back of my head as possible until the end of the year and see what happens.’’ Asked about playing in New York, Millsap said, “Anywhere could be an option. But my loyalty right now is in Atlanta. Free agency is free agency. When it happens, I’ll weigh my options and see where I’m at. But I’m happy in Atlanta right now.’’ New York Post

The rest of the Pacers said Hibbert's benching was the result of a poor matchup against Atlanta's Paul Millsap and Pero Antic. "I was surprised just because it's never happened," forward Paul George said about Hibbert's benching, "but it was just a tough matchup for Roy. To have a five-man who can stretch the floor, put the ball on the ground and shoot perimeter shots. It was just a tough cover because Roy's great at protecting the rim and being in the paint and Antic really had him on the perimeter the whole night." ESPN.com
