According to The Vertical, Paul Millsap has opted out of his $21.4 million contract for the 2017-18 season and will become a free agent. The 32-year-old All-Star is arguably the top power forward available this summer and should be able to command a max deal. Millsap has said that he would like to re-sign with Atlanta and the Hawks have made it clear that bringing him back is their top priority, but he could potentially walk with the Hawks getting nothing in return (just like Al Horford did last summer). Millsap averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.1 triples on 44.2 percent shooting this season, but he had trouble staying healthy and appeared in just 69 games.

Paul Millsap said he wants to re-sign with the Hawks this summer. "I want to be here," Millsap said. "I think talks have been pretty good. ... It's something me, my agent and my family have got to sit down and talk about." Millsap already confirmed that he will "most likely" opt out of his player option and become a free agent, but the Hawks are "going to make every effort imaginable to keep him" according to team owner Tony Ressler. Head coach Mike Budenholzer said he's "incredibly optimistic and incredibly committed to Paul," so the Hawks have made their intentions pretty clear. A max contract offer seems likely for the 32-year-old All-Star.

Paul Millsap admitted he will "most likely" opt out of his player option. The writing was on the wall for this one as Millsap looks to get one more big pay day. He did say he loved Atlanta, but a lot of teams will likely be after the 32-year-old Millsap. He was in what was close to a perfect spot for his stat output, so a change of scenery would likely hurt his fantasy value.

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.
