The Atlanta Hawks are looking to shake things up sooner, rather than later.
The Sacramento Kings have emerged as team interested in Millsap’s services, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The Kings are currently holding the last playoff seed in the Western Conference and could be looking to make an aggressive move to make the postseason.
It is unknown who the trade pieces would be, but small forward Rudy Gay would not be a bad speculation. Millsap on the other hand would be a good pairing for DeMarcus Cousins as he doesn’t have the need to operate inside at all times.
Despite Paul Millsap’s insistence of wanting to remain with the team, his name is flying hot in the trade wire and any team able to acquire him and his expiring contract is surely looking to win right away.
The 6-foot-8 forward is averaging 17.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.9 blocks — offering an all-around package to any team willing to put all hands on deck to snatch him.
