NBA rumors: Celtics eyeing Paul Millsap?

There is some interest within the organization in forward Paul Millsap, who is still generally classified in that second tier despite making two consecutive All-Star teams with the Hawks. Ultimately, though, the Celtics will not truly know where they stand with potential targets until courtships ramp up this week.

More on Paul Millsap Free Agency

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.
Maybe Paul Millsap's time in a Jazz uniform hasn't come to an end. Spencer Checketts, son of former Jazz president Dave Checketts and radio show host for team-owned radio station 1280 AM The Zone, reported on Twitter on Friday that the Jazz "will actively pursue" the former Jazzman in free agency. Spencer Checketts: Just caught wind that the Jazz will actively pursue Hawks UFA PF Paul Millsap this off-season.
