Paul Millsap officially signs with the Brooklyn Nets

Sep 10, 2021 0 comments

 Free agent forward Paul Millsap has finalized a deal to join the Brooklyn Nets, although as per team policy, details of the deal were not disclosed. 

A 15-year veteran with stops in Utah, Atlanta and Denver, Millsap has been on the Nets' radar for some time. For his career, the seasoned big man has averaged 13.7 points and 7.2 rebounds on 49 percent shooting from the floor and 34.3 percent from 3-point range. 

Millsap ranks second among all active NBA players in games played trailing only LeBron James' 1,072. Millsap is the only player to have over 1,000 blocks and 1,000 steals during that span. Brooklyn is hoping to bolster a front court that was razor thin a season ago by adding the grizzled vet. 

It's unclear how minutes will shake out for Millsap given the signing of LaMaracus Aldridge, James Johnson's presence on the roster, Sekou Doumbouya, DeAndre Bembry and Nicolas Claxton also battling for minutes. 

Depth is not a bad problem to have and Steve Nash has an embarrassment of riches in the talent department with James Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to go along with an experienced bench full off former All-Stars. 

At 36, Millsap is past the prime of his career, but he could relish the opportunity to be a spark plug of the bench and most importantly serve as a critical factor in the Nets' playoff push.
