It’s NBA trades season and some players are already on the move, like Cam Reddish and Bol Bol. Paul Millsap of the Brooklyn Nets could be next.
In Brooklyn, the forward has been somewhat lost in the shuffle. His role was never going to compare to the likes of Kevin Durant and James Harden, but the situation only became more untenable when LaMarcus Aldridge came out of retirement to rejoin the team.
NBA Trades: 3 landing spots for Nets forward Paul Millsap
This season, Millsap has played in 24 games, averaging slightly more than 11 minutes per contest. He’s averaging a lowly 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
The big man clearly believes he has something left in the tank, though, and can prove that on another team poised to make a deep playoff run. According to The Athletic, the Nets and Millsap have mutually agreed to part ways, and Brooklyn is looking for a trade partner for the 36-year-old.
It’s hard to believe Millsap has a ton left in the tank. He’s one of the oldest players in the league, set to turn 37 in just a couple of weeks. But it’s fair to say that the Nets haven’t given him the chance to show what he’s got left this season.
In his prime, Millsap was a key player in the NBA. He has averaged a solid 13.5 points and 7.1 rebounds over the course of his career and is a four-time All-Star.
Who would be willing to take a chance on Millsap at this stage of his career? Here are three possible landing spots for the forward.
