Quin Snyder Rumors
Kenny Atkinson pushed me to take my game to another level. Darvin Ham shared the tricks he picked up during his long NBA career to help me develop my skills around the basket. And then there was Quin Snyder, who was the first coach who took me under his wing while he was an assistant here. The big difference between regular NBA players and superstars isn’t just talent, but the way they train. Quin and I just kind of clicked right away when I came to the Hawks, and he began working with me to develop skills that I hadn’t really touched before. His belief in me built up my confidence so much.
Millsap has a good relationship with Jazz coach Quin Snyder, and credits him with a great deal of his development in year 1 of his Atlanta tenure. Snyder was an assistant with Atlanta at that time. Snyder helped Millsap with “Pick & roll situations, screen in the proper place, rescreens in proper place.” He also felt that Atlanta’s offense “suited [him] better” than the Jazz’s did under Ty Corbin.
