Denver Nuggets power forward Paul Millsap missed most of his first season with the team, but with a clean bill of health, the NBA veteran has three objectives for the 2018-19 season.

The much-anticipated debut season for Paul Millsap in a Denver Nuggets uniform following their signing of the free agent to a three-year deal was cut short due to injury.

In his injury-shortened debut, Millsap played in 38 games, with only a single game coming off the bench.

For the Nuggets, he averaged 14.6 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. His numbers were down when compared to his last several seasons with the Atlanta Hawks before making his way to Denver last summer.

Known for his presence down low, efficiency from inside the arc and defensive prowess, Millsap was set to assist the Nuggets with their greatest need for a big alongside Nikola Jokic, while replacing an area of weakness, supplanting the combination of Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee that the Nuggets had been using before his arrival.

In his second year with the team, Millsap is set to be a mainstay in the starting lineup with a rebound season at the Pepsi Center in his sights. Here are three goals for his 2018-19 campaign.
