It is clear at this point that the Brooklyn Nets are looking to shake up their roster ahead of the upcoming February trade deadline. Whispers of a James Harden exit have already emerged, while reports of a potential trade for promising big man Nic Claxton have also surfaced.
Another name that has been linked to a move away from Brooklyn is veteran forward Paul Millsap. As a matter of fact, NBA insider Shams Charania of The Athletic reports that the Nets and Millsap have already made a decision on the four-time All-Star’s future with the team.

There appears to be no clear destination for Millsap as of yet, but we can come to the conclusion that his time in Brooklyn is coming to an end in the near future.
Millsap joined the Nets as a free agent last September. He’s barely made an impact on the squad, and it seems that the 36-year-old has grown tired of his limited role with the team. In 24 games played for the Nets this season, Millsap has produced averages of just 3.4 points and 3.7 rebounds in 11.3 minutes of action.
Paul Millsap is a far cry from the All-Star he once was, but his wealth of experience could still be a valuable asset for younger teams that are in need of a veteran presence within their squad.
