On Saturday, it was reported that the Celtics were interested in Millsap’s services, but he became a higher priority for Denver since they lost both Miles Plumlee and Jerami Grant to the Detroit Pistons. Plumlee inked a three-year deal, $25 million deal, while Grant received a massive three-year, $60 million deal.
Last season with the Nuggets, the veteran forward averaged 11.6 points and 5.7 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game. Millsap made three consecutive All-Star teams with the Atlanta Hawks before making a fourth in his first season with Denver in 2017. While he’s not the scorer he once was, he’s averaged at least 11 points and 5 rebounds per game for 12 straight seasons.
Heading into this season, the Nuggets have solidified their forward position with Millsap and JaMychal Green, who they signed to a two-year deal on Friday night. Then, there’s also Michael Porter Jr., who took major steps in his development down in the bubble.
