According to Brian Windhorst, the Atlanta Hawks are looking for a sign and trade of Paul Millsap.
On ESPN, Windhorst stated,
"There are three or four teams out there that are willing to give Millsap a max-level contract, and sources have told me that the Hawks have begun getting some feelers on sign-and-trades. Teams like the Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings and Denver Nuggets are interested."

It’s clear that Atlanta would like to keep Millsap but may not be able to give a better offer than other teams. New general manager Travis Schlenk told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution,
“We are going to make Paul our best offer,” Schlenk said. “Will he have better offers? I don’t know. Do we want to keep Paul? Sure. I said last week, if you are building a team with all the things I’ve said, Paul checks all those boxes. He’s a hard-worker. He’s a good guy. He’s high-character. Skilled. He does all that stuff.
“We’d like to have him. The reality is, he might get better offers than we can make him.”
Sadly, not having a lottery pick, the Jazz may not be a contender unless they can find a way to get involved in a three team trade. They may be able to go after him if he makes it to free agency though.
This offseason is proving to be one to remember.
Would you like to see Paul Millsap back in a Jazz jersey even if it costs the Utah Jazz draft picks and Rodney Hood?
