Report: Warriors, Nets interested in free agent Paul Millsap


It’s a little surprising that a veteran power forward who can defend in the paint, is strong on the boards, and can knock down some threes is still available — even at age 36.

Yet Paul Millsap is still a free agent.

A couple of contenders are interested, reports Michael Singer of the Denver Post.

I would expect the Lakers, with a couple of roster spots to fill, also have to be taking a look at Millsap (Marc Stein reports that former Pacer JaKarr Sampson may get that forward spot). There may be others.

Millsap averaged 9 points and 4.7 rebounds in Denver last season, knocking down 34.3% of his 3s. The best he will get at his age is likely a one-year, a veteran minimum contract, but he would bring some real value off the bench to a contender. Those teams should be making calls.
