One of the NBA’s biggest trade targets is reportedly off the market.
Millsap is one of the NBA’s top two-way power forwards, averaging 17.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game while offering strong defensive value with his quickness and versatility in the frontcourt. The 31-year-old will likely decline his player option at the end of this season to test free agency.
Atlanta’s decision to focus on winning this season seems curious considering the Hawks traded three-point marksman Kyle Korver to the Eastern Conference-leading Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this month.
The NBA trade deadline is Feb. 23.
