Paul Millsap

Ending a huge $90 million deal, Paul Millsap will be a free agent. He’d be an ideal player to add for that trade exception. At 35, Millsap has everything the Golden State Warriors would want in a small-ball center.

For starters, Millsap is an elite three-point shooter. Many may not consider him one, but Millsap is shooting 44% from downtown, by far a career-high. Placing him with the best shooting backcourt of all time would open the floor up tremendously.

Millsap is averaging just 12 points per game this season. However, the four-time All-Star hasn’t typically been an elite scoring threat. He’s yet to top over 20 per game during any season so the drop in scoring isn’t necessarily a concern.

Averaging over seven boards per game on his career, his rebounding shouldn’t be a weakness. His shooting mixed with little weaknesses make him a quality addition. He’d perfectly round out the starting unit.

All three would be welcome additions, at the right price, for Golden State.
