According to Chris Vivlamore, after getting reports from Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy on Twitter, the Atlanta Hawks have moved forward from their disappointment around Dwight Howard to sign forward Paul Millsap.
In other NBA news, I'm hearing that Paul Millsap is in serious talks with the Atlanta Hawks. Trying to confirm and get terms.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) July 6, 2013
And now here's Chris Vivlamore's confirmation of said rumor
Hawks have agreed to deal with Paul Milsap. #ATLHawks— Chris Vivlamore (@ajchawks
Millsap ranked very highly in our NBA Free Agency Signing Board and Brian Windhorst of ESPN says it's a 2 year deal:
The Atlanta Hawks have agreed to terms on a 2-year deal with Paul Millsap sources tell ESPN.— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) July 6, 2013
David Aldridge reports it's a 2 year, 19 million dollar deal.
Paul Millsap agrees with Hawks for two yes, 19M, per source.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 6, 2013
Offhand, it looks like the Millsap signing relegates Al Horford to stay at center, but this free agency has shown us that anything is possible and nothing is complete.
