Paul Millsap    F  Hawks

 

 

Paul Millsap said he would "take some time" before deciding whether or not to exercise his player option. "These last four years have been great. Can't ask for nothing more," said Millsap. "Now I will take some time, relax and see what happens." He has a $21.4 million player option for the 2017-18 season. However, he'll have the opportunity a sign a new deal for well over $100 million thus summer, so opting out is a no-brainer. The only real question is whether he chooses to re-sign with the Hawks or land elsewhere.

Paul Millsap scored 31 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, one block, four steals, six turnovers and one 3-pointer in 46 minutes during a season-ending 115-99 loss to the Wizards on Friday. After a down regular season, Millsap really came through against the Wizards, but he didn't get enough help in the frontcorut. In the six games, he averaged 24.3 points, 9.3 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.5 treys. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer and will be getting a lot of interest in the market. Millsap is already 32, so teams signing him to four years likely will not enjoy the last year of that contract.

Paul Millsap flirted with a triple-double in Monday's Game 4 win over the Wizards, scoring 19 points with nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple. Markieff Morris called him a "crybaby" after Game 3, so this victory had to feel good and Millsap said on Sunday that he has enjoyed the banter so far. "It’s fun. I’m enjoying this. It’s been an interesting series," he said. "It’s also been one of the most fun series I’ve been a part of. I’m enjoying every minute of it." Millsap has been dominant in this series and was averaging 25.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in his previous three games, so it's easy to see why Hawks owner Tony Ressler said this week that he will "make every effort imaginable" to re-sign him this summer.

Hawks owner Tony Ressler made it clear that re-signing Paul Millsap this offseason is a priority. "We are going to make every effort imaginable to keep him," Ressler said. This isn't the first time we've heard this from the Hawks, but it will likely take a max deal to keep the 32-year-old All Star in Atlanta. The Hawks explored the idea of trading him around the turn of the new year to avoid losing him for nothing this summer, but pulled him off the market right before the trade deadline. The Hawks had to let Al Horford walk as a free agent last summer, so we'll see if they have better luck with Millsap.

Paul Millsap torched the Wizards during the Game 3 116-98 victory, scoring 29 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in just 33 minutes. After battling through a knee injury earlier this month, it's safe to say he is back with this gem and a 27-point, 10-board game in Game 2. As great as the outing was, all the talk will be about how Markieff Morris called Millsap a "crybaby" on top of all the MMA talk leading up to this game. When Millsap found out about the comment, he had a little trash talk of his own. "I don't care. So what? Take his loss and go back to the hotel," Millsap said. The Hawks are about inconsistent as it gets for these playoff teams, but they sure can get hot in a hurry. All eyes will continue to be on the Millsap-Morris battle.
