The Hawks will re-sign unrestricted free agent forward Paul Millsap, an All-Star in each of his first two campaigns with the club, for three seasons at a total of $59 million. Added soon after that the third year of the deal will be a player option, which could free up the 30-year-old Millsap to sign one last big contract after the salary cap rises in the summer of 2016.
After DeMarre Carroll was lost to the Raptorsthis morning, and Tiago Splitter was brought over from the Spurs, it seemed last season’s top team in the Eastern Conference would be getting serious makeover this summer. But all-star Paul Millsap will return to the Atlanta Hawks.
